Late November 2012 Swell - Day 1

Looking forward to the next few days with a nice swell on tap.

Took a gander around midday and there was definitely some juice out there. Pretty stoked to see some spots awake from their slumber as a result of this swell.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Unexpected Find

Up until recently, I rarely kept the original files of my pics and videos. So it came as a surprise when I recently found a few clips of a pretty good day at one of the spots that I frequent.

Not only was finding these few clips an unexpected find, but the waves that I recorded on that day were also an unexpected find. As I recall, I didn't expect anything more than what this spot usually dishes out. As it were, though, there were some nice in-and-out lefts that were totally makeable.

Since I was initially taking pictures on that day, I didn't have a tripod with me. That said, forgive the shaky video.

Foggy Friday

This morning was super foggy. Visibility was pretty bad. Here's a short clip from this morning:

November 20, 2012

Talk about a generic post title. Anyway, here are some pics from this morning:

In before Manhattan Beach pulls its annual "Hey look at all the Christmas trees on the pier... ok, you've looked at them enough; we'll be taking them down now"

... and not a moment too soon. Dang, it ain't even Christmas and you guys are already taking down the Christmas trees. Heck, it ain't even Thanksgiving.

Edit: On second thought, I wonder if these Christmas trees are donated to those less fortunate to brighten their Christmas. If so, I commended you, City of Manhattan Beach. It's truly a noble fir for a noble cause.

After checking out the beach, I decided to check out the Body Glove sale. Frugality got the best of me, though, so I guess I'll be using my puka-in-da-okole suit for one more season. Ha

Choppy Surf

I was hoping the winds had subsided enough overnight to make for clean conditions this morning. Unfortunately, that was not the case and choppy surf was the call for the day.

Around the Corner

There wasn't a lot of juice out there today, and the waves that did have a little juice were mostly close outs. Despite the lack of juice, there was something out there today that seemed to say winter is right around the corner. I better get those holes in my suit patched up! Or buy a new suit.
