Thursday’s Flatness – the micro surf continues

Thursday won’t be a surf day.

Lack of swell and higher morning tides is going to keep the surf pretty darn small tomorrow.

Expect lots of ankle high waves with some rare knee high+ sets at the standout combo breaks, mostly through San Diego (because it is more exposed to the steeper, but still small, NW windswell).

There will be a bit of new S-SW swell starting to slowly filter in waaaaay late in the day…but between the building wind bump and general afternoon funk…I don’t think we are going to see much on the beach.

Friday and Saturday look a little bit better as a small, but bigger than we have now, S-SSW swell starts to arrive. Looks like at least some waist-chest high sets (and maybe a little bigger) as we head into the holiday weekend. Man I don’t think I could have taken a completely flat 3-day weekend.

Here are the tides…oh wait it is going to be flat…nevermind I will make sure to put them in tomorrows forecast…stupid ocean.

In the meantime what do you guys think about a Point Break 2 being made…I have to admit the premise sounds awesome. (and by awesome I mean spectacularly bad)

Plot: When Billy Dalton, military special ops and star surfer, is disqualified from the pro-surfing tour, he takes off for the coast of Bali looking for the perfect wave. While there he's recruited by a private security force who are trying to find a gang known as The Bush Administration, surfing outlaws and modern day pirates who work like "The Ex-Presidents," a bank robbing crew from Malibu twenty years ago.

Walshe-Howling will play the bad guy, a sea-pirate named Dali. He and his team wear masks of The Bush Administration (George Bush, Colin Powell, Dick Cheney, etc) as they rob boats. Dali's sister, Teela, ends up falling in love with Dalton, an undercover Fed working in Dali's gang, which complicates matters.

well, as i always say (but no one listens) when every other place is flat, IB is on. Today was the perfect example. It was glass until 10am with perfect A-frame 3-4 footers all to myself. Love these days. And, no, the water was not dirty; clean as a whistle!

Keep telling yourself that and mabey one day it will come true! unfortunatly i need real waves not just the cool imaginary type at IB!

sad reality is that that guy who wrote about IB is probably right. with such a steep angle IB does probably get stuff when most all other spots in SoCal miss it. Thus, we end up with days like today, while IB gets its share of waves. Sad, but probably true.
