The perfect day at lindomar

This was the surf report for this last Sunday.

PACIFICA SURF REPORT (For Sunday 10/30)

Good morning, this is Paul with the report for Sunday morning at 7:15 AM.

SURF: 4-5 ft. - shoulder to head high and fair conditions.

AM UPDATE: It's glassy and a bit walled but there are workable sections on the inside.


My friend Reed and I had the perfect day surfing. We got to the beach a little early since it was daylight savings time. It was one of those days surfing that reminds you why you have the addiction. You pull into lindomar and it's bumper to bumper traffic. You look out and the waves are full of surfers. 9 out of 10 times when you hit the beach at lindomar it's gray, rainy, blown out and the waves are closing out. But this Sunday it was 2-4 feet little lefts that Reed and I were eating up. The other Surfers in the water were cheerful and talking about all the cool places to go Surfing. Reed and I still need to schedule our Costa Rica trip. I got waves until my arms felt like jello. We kept going in for our last wave, but going out one more.

What an awesome day.
