Morning Surf

Last week saw a good run of quality surf thanks to some northwest swell. Two different swells brought overhead surf to the entire coastline, including here in San Luis Obispo. We saw a few good days, but crossing swell directions, extreme tide conditions, and poor sand distribution at local beaches made the swell mostly unsurfable.

California typically sees its best surfing conditions of the year during fall; the water is still warm after summer and swells from the Gulf of Alaska have started to arrive. Unfortunately, we've seen far less swell than usual; I can't remember an October that I've surfed so little.
