Hey Mark, glad you got some water-time. Timing is every thing, if you'd have come a week earlier, you'd have had some sunny, warm waether, and pretty good surf. Looks like when you get back to NJ the storm will be following you. I was hoping to meet up for a surf with you this trip, but it's just not going to happen.

I had an interesting time in Mammoth trying to snowboard. First day I had two crummy runs and quit because the conditions were getting worst. Next day I never left the condo, and the third day we drove home early to avoid one of the worst blizzards Mammoth has ever had.

Sh1t happens.

How much longer are you in Encinitas?   Water has been kind of sketchy the last few days.  I'm finally headed out tomorrow AM.  I got an infection last year surfing after a storm that took 6 weeks and 4 different antibiotics to get rid of, so stay away from the lagoon outlets and sewer pipes.   Lots of better places to surf than moonlight - did somebody give you some directions to the best spots yet?

That Mammoth trip sounds a bit frustrating, Tom. Like you say, timing is everything. Seems Tuesday was 65F and sunny in NJ, with a perfect 5-6' groundswell fillin in too. Beauty of a low went off. Oh well, outa my hands so not losing sleep over it.

seasdart, I kinda like Moonlight, no cliff access and it's a sweet beach break. My last trip here I pretty much surfed the entire stretch from Cardiff Reef to Moonlight. Also one A+ day at Sunset Cliffs thanx to Zoner Tom. Hoping to hit a break in Solana Beach manana on/Digger's invite. But knowing more spots and directions can't hurt! Moonlight was sooo fun last trip. glassy long peelers to the beach. I was in heaven!

Good for you Marc, nice pics!

Haha, Pono mentioning Belly Up and the Kraken brings back so many memories for me.  I lived in North County in the 80s, worked at Fish House West (no longer there) which was right next to the Kraken.  That little stretch was called restaurant row, across the street was The Chart House and the Triton.  North County is so nice but last time I visited the traffic and crowds was an eye opener.

An old friend of mine Kathy (tall blonde) worked at the Fish House West in the 80's. Her and I taught skiing together at Snow Summit.

Thats cool.  I dont remember many names a lot of faces though.  I also worked at Fidels Mexican restaurant in Solana Beach, another fun place to work.

Kernel said he's going to try to make it to SanO Friday early. I'm planning on being there. Hopefully Cookie will join the SanO Zone crew there?

Hooked up w/Digger for a successful Seaside Reef sesh. Man was that nice! He showed me the lay-out and we started on the wave count right off the bat. Dig was slicin' it up sweet on a 9 something King's tri-fin. I called it the Twiggy model it's so narrow, thin, and curvy! He let me try it and it was difficult for me to adjust after floatin' around on the fatty Assassin.
Collaged some shots.

cookie! nice wave--enjoy the trip!
Never tire of hearin' that! Thanks.

Good to surf with you today!  Not like it's some secret spot but we were the only 2 out for over an hour on a sunny chest high morning.  Amazing what just  a little paddling can get you.  Who says SoCal is crowded?  :)

Hey Cook

I saw you this morning down at dogpatch, i was chatting with Dave Daum from Kings when you walked up.  I wanted to introduce myself but you disappeared and I had to get to work.  Hope you got some good ones.
