Saw a few sea stars on the shoreline this morning, alive and intact-- was genuinely moved, since it's been a few years since I've last seen them just lounging in the intertidal zone like that. Good on them for kicking wasting disease @ss.

Waves weren't that bad either, but not as remarkable as nature's resiliency. Shoulder-head with a bit of wind wobble; decent energy for a wind swell on the cusp of summer.

Anyone get pitted on International Surfing Day???? :lol:

I've been out on the coast most of the week - hit Shorties Wednesday. Pretty busy in the water - swell was a little disorganized but some thumpy a-frames to be had. Went south to the LC digs and hit Agate super early yesterday; had it mostly to myself from 6-8 (4 heads out total, including myself.) A little mushy but found some lines. Crowd started trickling in as I scooted out. I actually didn't realize it was International Surfing Day until I saw all the posts about the absolute messes left at Otter, SS and elsewhere yesterday evening. Way to go, people...

Taking a skate day today. Happy Father's Day to those with the groms!

I hit short sands early Friday. Looking at the cams it seemed small and dribbly and I debated bring 9'6". Such a pain to have to put a board on the roof and try to carry it down, paracord tied to the shortboard and looped around the shoulder (NTS: get a board bag). Glad I brought the log. Lowtide had me lapping wedgy sets, ending with a nice long one with a good little sit in the pocket. Was definitely a day of glide. Tide rising brought jumbledness and a weird fog for a bit. Picked back up again with some steeper inside sets, little sketchy with so much foam to control. Caught a few more then ditched as the beach started to get absolutely swamped, with more late arrivals hunting the parking and in 26 traffic. That's 2 surfs in 2 weeks. Not a bad start.

Brohampton zoo on Friday. Nice swell running, got a few but mostly close outs as is
the case there with a dropping tide. The parking scene there now puts is beyond.
Can't wait to ride the shuttle bus with all my gear!

Have had good luck on the lower tides. Family beach day Friday...... opted for popular beach despite getting an early report from a semi rando we've had luck with recently. Nearly impossible to get my girls out of the house before 8 am and figured it would be blown to shreds by the time I got there not to mention gromitas were looking to get wet. July 4th crowds in the lot, but not to bad on the beach if you walked a little ways. South lot still closed for some reason, so wasn't as maxed as it looked. Surfed with my family at high and then had a fun funboard sesh on the low. 1st few waves had dry hair and flew down the line on my 7'3", wind whipping through my Coivd locks, doing my best Knost steeze. 8) Bailed the Rona Beach Party and eyed some tasty looking adult waves that were out of reach for me at the time. Camped at a crusty RV park I've never botherd with, but not much available during these Covid times. Woke to rain and I mean rain. Summer Solstice session was a soggy one. Felt closer to Winter solstice. Tricky, but solid and thumpy. Pulled into a couple that shut, but quick views were nice. Lasted an hour or so before I grew tired. RV people are fuuking loud and slept like shit. Rolled home rinsed and hung pile of sandy dank prene and opted for the seclusion of my backyard Fathers Day. Missing the covert Covid sessions.

Took the 14' sit-in log to a deep east side spot between South Sister and Bach. Got the GF comfortable with cruising, made some turns, got some much needed outside time. No 2" wind waves were caught, but any time in some body of water is good right? Slept cold, made breakfast in the rain, and bounced. Headed back home east of the Cascades and dug on the scenery. In 4 hours it felt like we went through 3 or 4 different biomes and climates. All in all, not bad for a quick overnighter.

Nice you most certainly did...... at least 2 or 3 or different biomes and climates. Heading deep east for the holiday, far far away from the masses hopefully. Will strike this week before Merica takes over the coast thou.

Lazy yesterday and getting tired of the summer crowds. Opted for a buzz in the backyard. That said, looked like a bump in the water and pretty quiet on one cam. Fairly consistent wind swell on tap. Wonder if we will go back into closures and shelter in place mode as we are hitting record numbers day after day. :roll:

Yeah we done screwed the pooch with the COVID - I think economy will trump public safety though during this 2nd wave (or spike or whatever.) Doubt there will be another stay-at-home order but I could be wrong.

Interesting issue with skateparks - we've hit almost a dozen over the last month, and LC is the only one still technically closed. People crammed in at the LC Farmer's markets and the outlets with 0 social distancing, yet LC PD and city workers being complete a$$holes, running people out every hour (I counted 6 total people in there max). Can't help but think there must be some other underlying issue at hand.

Wrapped last week with another session at Agate - super mushy and windblown but warm - went without booties/gloves in the 4/3. Nice to feel wax under the feet...

Indeed we did hit Newport - those new sections are super smooooth. Funny you mention that because we skated there, surfed Agate and then headed back to LC. My son wanted to hit the LC skatepark again, so when the city worker rolled in and started giving us shite, my first question was so, what? You can catch COVID in LC and not Newport??? Typical 'I don't make the rules' response... One of the local kids did tell me the folks at the church that overlook the park aren't rel keen on the park being there.

I can only imagine during Sunday service someone blowing a trick and a loud-a$$ "FUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCCCCCCC" reverberating through the Sunday masses....

Passed through LC not too long ago and seemed like a lot of day use sites were still closed, not to mention the campground, so maybe the city is just down on recreation in general. Or maybe they’re still butthurt about the Rip Ride Rally last year. Fond memories of Neckface addressing a little league game on the PA, encouraging the kids to ditch the uniforms and “come to the dark side”...
