Encinitas- Day One and Two
« on: February 05, 2019, 12:10:58 PM »
Been a challenge to dodge the rain squalls but me and the wife are making the best of it. Surf should be a go manana!

Nice memory clip. Just got back form there, I surfed every day rain on not.
only spring suit in the early morning, none later on when sunny.
I'll take these conditions every day compared to the east coast.

Have fun! beautiful waves.

Lots of good looking photos. Looks like you've picked a nice place to vacation. Nice town, nice accommodations and real nice looking waves.

Thanks for sharing.

Cookie, should cleaned-up by Thursday. Tomorrow may workout and still have some size, but the water quality will be iffy. Thursday and Friday look like go days. Friday is supposed to have more wind, but you never know. Maybe even squeeze in a Saturday morning before the next storm hits?

Sweet video.  The cove looked pretty clean in the video. Thats a cool place to paddle.  TD is correct on the forecast.  We might get a surprise tomorrow morning though?  Cross your fingers.  Cardiff has some great sand bars going on now. When it cleans up Thursday and Friday you will score.

Cool, Marc.  I was there about 20yrs ago and there were small cottage homes between what looked like a light rail and the beach. A place I thought I shudda bin born'd.  Have fun.

I don't know what I was thinking, but there are two places you need to know about if you're up for nightlife. Bellyup and The Kraken. Belly up occasionally has big-name performers, but if you like music and like to dance then any night is fine. Friday is my favorite because they have Atomic Groove play an early show. Being a geezer, late nights are not in the cards, especially when the surf is firing. You'd have to see and hear Atomic Groove to understand. Besides fine musicians, they have a rotating selection of gorgeous singers/dancers/cheerleaders to get everyone moving. Looking at the shoulders and arms of the Atomic Groove "Fly Girls" leads me to believe they are likely all surfer girlz. The place gets packed, arrive early. The attached restaurant is surprisingly good and has a separate entrance to the club. Seats inside are at a premium.

The Kraken is a hole in the wall more or less across the street from Cardiff Reef. Somewhat dead in the daylight hours, it's fun at night. One of those places that you wind up at, as in "...so we wound up at the Kracken..." It looks like such a firetrap that every room I walked into I looked for quick exits: "So if I throw a chair through that window, and then use a second one to clear the frame...". But once you get all your exits planned it does indeed rock.

Also worthwhile--Taco Tuesday at Brigantine in Del Mar. Great sunset view, reasonable if you don't go for a full menu and stick to happy hour.

And the very wicked Handel's Homemade Ice Cream joint in Encinitas.

Diggin' the replies, Zoners! Finally got in the water and waves today. was a piece of cake early right b4 the high tide. Paddled right out and started on the wave count. By the time the tide pushed in there were four and five rows of steam rollin' walls of white water punishing my to the shorebreak and drift down beach. one paddle out had me goin' for 20 mins easy w/many eff-u's muttered!
  And i had assumed the SOLOSHOT was juiced up but she was completely flat bat wise. Luckily I had the power pack with so I plugged her in and after an hour she was charged up enough to boot. so I got the last 45 mins or so of the sesh. But the wind had started to come up and i was a bit tuckered. only managed one or two but better than nothin'.
...and thanx to Digger for the space heater. The Airbnb we are staying in has no heat and my wife is NOT a happy camper! But she is now! That thing is cookin'!

Good pics Marc!  Glad the heater helped you out - just another random purchase at Costco last time I had family in town :)

And Pono is spot on about Belly Up if you weren't aware of it.  Tonight is a really funky, bluesy, southern rock band called North Mississippi Allstars.  Tomorrow is Joan Osbourne singing Dylan songs.  And Friday is Atomic Groove  followed by Groundation - a jazzy roots, reggae band from NorCal.  Almost all general admission and only holds about 500ppl.  A few doors down Cedros from Culture brewing.

Glad you scored some surf Cookie. Should get cleaner early tomorrow. Hopefully, SanO Friday morning will work out. Nice to have some heat too. It's butt cold for us here. It was 50 in the sun today, but I still had shorts on.
