Except for some occasional southern pulses not much going on this morning. Slow, rolling waist high surf muddling through a 4.7 foot high tide. On shore breeze causing some surface texture and crumbly shape. Crowd had thinned out from yesterdays high of 50 or so down to about 20. 2.0 low tide at 1:30pm. Water temps in the mid 60's. Clearing skies.

Slow, mushy waist high surf, on shore breeze, and a lot of people in the water. Perfect. Smooth sea surface with some left over bump from yesterday's winds. There's really not much surf this morning which pretty much guarantees 6 people on every "wave". A 3.9 high tide just happened at 6am; a 2.6 low at 11am. Water is still cool by San Diego summer standards; mid to upper 60's. About 35 people out.

A bit more size but not as clean. Most of the soft, slow waist high surf is being generated by a short period NW wind swell. Some larger peaks here and there. Bumpy sea surface with a moderate west wind. Fair shape with poor+ conditions. Water temps have come back up to the high 60's and possibly 70 or so. A 2.3 foot low tide at 9:30am then back up to a 5.8 high at 4pm. Max tide push at 1:30pm. 8 people out.

Classes have begun at the Palomar Cabinet and Furniture Technology program and I'm the TA for classes on Monday and Tuesday mornings; so no surf reports on those days.

Meanwhile, back at the beach we have a glassy sea surface undulating with some knee to thigh high surf. Not much juice at all and breaking close in. Still, the crowd is light enough that some short rides are possible on the set waves. Long boards with lots of volume are a key piece of equipment this morning. No wind, with a tide that will bottom out (1.9) in about an hour. 5.7 foot high tide at 3pm. 2 people out.
