A Good Excuse for Trestles

Attending a California Coastal Commission meeting in support of Surfrider gave me an excuse to surf Trestles on the way up to Huntington Beach. My buddy Steve joined me before he headed to a dance weekend in the OC.
We'd hoped the dawn patrol crowd would empty out by late morning, but it seems that in summer there is no second shift. Steve paddled out into the pack at Cottons but I choose a lesser peak toward Uppers with only two guys on it, and eventually the steady breeze pushed him to where I was.

The waves in my meh spot were not quite head-high, inconsistent, and often wedgy, but I still rode a few fun lefts on my shortboard. The south groundswell gave them power and speed, reminding me of Hawaii. Stoked!
