Running on Fumes (Linda Mar)

We're having our kitchen remodeled, and a headache from lingering paint fumes drove me from the house relatively early this morning. Although I'd wanted to wait until midday for the high tide to fall off, the fresh air did me a world of good and the company of a few friends (in the midst of a hundred strangers) more than made up for the mushy waves. I rode a decent number of 'em on Nemo, and turned my waterproof camera on Nikki, Jacob and J-Bird.

Smile, ladies!

Surfline: 2=3 ft, poor to fair conditions. Clean, but dealing with small-scale waves this morning. Soft, semi-rideable shape now. Slows down with the rising tide. West-WNW swell on tap this morning along with inconsistent SW groundswell. The better exposures go waist-head high with larger sets, while standout breaks go slightly overhead on occasion. Wind remains fairly light at the moment with generally smooth surface conditions. Watch for a 6.18' high tide just before 10:30am to slow things down as we move through the morning. Buoy 46026: (Wave) SWELL: 3.9 ft at 10.8 s WNW 89 / WIND WAVE: 1.0 ft at 3.6 s WNW / WVHT: 4.3 ft / APD: 7.0 s / MWD: 287° (Met) WSPD: 10 kn / GST: 12 kn / WVHT: 3.6 ft / DPD: 11.0 s / ATMP: 55° F / WTMP: 57° F. Tide: 5.5' rising to almost 6' high then dropping slightly.
