I offered to let Beanstalk, the consummate longboarder, try my 5'4" fish, and was a bit surprised when he took me up on it. J-Bird wanted to give it a go next. (I wish I'd had my waterproof camera, but it's in for warranty repairs for trouble staying focused.) First I passed Nemo to Beanstalk and he gave me his 7'6" mini-mal, then I took J-Bird's 7'8" hybrid Tweety-P while she tried Nemo, and finally Nemo came back to me while J-Bird and Beanstalk swapped boards with a cute watery kiss. I struggled at first to adapt to all that extra nose but rode a couple of waves on both of their boards, while they got some wobbly rides on the fish. Having Nemo under me again felt "so much easier, without all that unnecessary extra board length!" I don't think they agreed with me but it was a fun experiment.
Surfline: 2-4 ft, fair conditions. A little tough to see with the fog but surface conditions are smooth and there is still a little windswell running. Surf quality will likely improve a bit with the tide push. NW windswell is down from yesterday, but still showing decent size in the 3-4' range at exposed spots with a few plus sets at best breaks. It's very surfable, although some breaks will worsen with the incoming tide. Buoy 46026: (Wave) SWELL: 4.3 ft at 10.0 s NW 76 / WIND WAVE: 0.7 ft at 3.8 s W / WVHT: 4.6 ft / APD: 7.6 s / MWD: 314° (Met) WSPD: 4 kn / GST: 8 kn / WVHT: 4.6 ft / DPD: 10.0 s / ATMP: 52° F / WTMP: 56° F. Tide: Just over 3' rising to 4.5'.
