Hopefully, the large swell that arrived this past weekend organized the sand around San Luis Obispo a bit better. The beach breaks have been quite walled, forcing surfers to either try their luck in closeout surf or crowd the few reefs scattered throughout the county. The peak of the swell arrived Saturday, which I spent the entirety of surfing an overhead, left reef break. It was dark when I finally got out of the water, tip-toed across the dry reef, and traversed up the cliff. Saturday's crowd was not unruly, though I expected Sunday to be much worse (news about surf in towns like San Luis Obispo travels fast). I loaded up the car and headed south for a short trip to Santa Barbara.
Nick took a few photos, which we'll hopefully get a look at soon.
