Missing Winter (Really Just Missing Waves)

The dismally flat summer conditions plaguing California are giving surfers plenty to look forward to, or look back on (particularly after last year's stellar fall and winter season). Local Santa Barbara photographer David Molleck recently sent me this shot, which he took last January. After spending a couple weeks chasing swells in the Santa Barbara area, I shot down to this spot in the Ventura area on a Tuesday to find there was almost nobody out. I surfed here the rest of the week; it was hard not to want clean, overhead, thin-lipped barrels (until the weekend crowd turned up).
