Smaller and sloppier. Crowded. To escape the circus, did TrueMs (Bs+Ms) then paddled over to PseudoMs (Ms) then went in. And i did hear that, in fact, as we had observed, yesterday afternoon/evening had been going off.

Smaller. Fun. Lighter winds but still somewhat sloppy. Our regular spot was packed, so we did the A-framer. There were some smallish bowls. I had three good rides.
Afterward, up by the car we could see that the wind had backed off significantly and the form had cleaned up. Now our regular spot was going off. It looked really good. We watched as long, lined-up walls broke all the way across. Darn it!

Bigger. Nice conditions/form. Crowded. One factor is the high tide and whatever consequences, positive or negative, that entails.

New energy. At least twice the size of Tuesday (I didn't surf yesterday). West-y. High tide and wind creating messy form. Slightly crowded.

Really bad. My usual spot wasn't surfable. The high tide and near-flat, lack of energy meant groveling on the extreme inside for barely knee-high mushburgers (which we witnessed 10, or so, others doing as we stood on the beach watching for 15 minutes).
So my friend and I did Bs then Bs+Ms. We stayed out a surprising 2.5 hours. We were tired. It had been a relaxing and unhurried session. Didn't catch much, but it was enjoyable nonetheless.

Empty but small and really crappy.

Slightly bigger. Kinda crowded with longies. Got into a yelling match with one of them, and it ruined my morning.
Heading to the Big Island for a mini-vacation. No session tomorrow.

Slightly better with more wave action but still crappy. Moderately crowded.

Swell? Now I get it--I finally understand. You Advertiser and NWS guys, sometimes you're just kidding when you say the waves will be bigger, right? Jokesters, you.
Started at the A-framer then moseyed over to the Right-hander. Mark was catching all the waves (and wasn't sharing with Bud).

Seemed very west. Did the A-framer alone. Had a few decent ones, but the wait was much too long to be worth it.

Overall smaller with less wave action, but some rare good ones. Nice conditions/form. Just not enough of everything.

It's bigger. Pretty sloppy, though. Not crowded.

Might be bigger. It's definitely messy.

Bs+Ms alone. Some okay ones. I like being away from the throngs; but there's a trade off, a price to be paid for such solitude, namely, poor quality.

Did Ms alone. Slope-y and weak. It sucked. Afterward, up by the car I saw that the Right-hander was going off with only three guys. Gee, what a surprise: I made the wrong call. Oh well...

Didn't surf yesterday because I had to (unexpectedly) work all day. It was odd not to get in the water due to my job because that so rarely happens.
Today did the Right-hander because it looked good--and it was for about 15 minutes. During that time didn't score anything noteworthy because the regulars had the lock. I just sat on the side and bided my time. But it deteriorated by the minute, getting windier/sloppier and very inconsistent with agonizing waits. And it was packed with kooks. Eventually I got a few decent ones, but none were spectacular. Another disappointing session.

Did Bs+Ms with a friend to escape the crowd as our usual spot. It was so-so, but I had an awful time. Didn't get a single good one and was kooking out big time. Frickin' frustrating. Very disappointing.

Smaller, very sloppy, and breaking far on the inside. Just like yesterday, it was un-crowded until about 20 people paddled out in the space of 10 minutes.

Slightly bigger, semi-fun wind-slop. It wasn't crowded initially, then about 25 kooks (mostly longies) paddled out.

Seemed better at first (size, conditions) but not really. Quite miserable, actually.
