Carmel had some size and shape Sunday evening, brought the 9,6 and had to really muscle it around, wish I had the fish... no dish either...

Pretty funny aside: Driving back from the east side of Pinnacles on Saturday afternoon I found the magazine issue with the Randy quote that started this thread... it was from March of 2011 and featured Leo Houlding on the cover freeing the Prophet...

When taking my weekend as a whole, climbing on Saturday was incredible, felt really strong, then I found out about Lucas Dunn, then I got to go surf, and then I found out about Mason Robinson... odd peaks and valleys or peaks and troughs this weekend...

Tropical storm Andrea kicking off the season in the redneck riviera.










Powerful day, snapped my leash and had to call it a day,
well that and some high school chicks were hitting on me to buy them some beer.

Recovering from the best three days of June surf in CA that I can remember... so tired I practically need to be spoon fed.

o-man what's ur favorite spot over there on the south side of the island?
pyro, my personal favorite spot for south swell is "Lone Tree" aka "Woody's"
Over the years it has delivered quite well for me.
It has a left with a channel back out, and a right that has two great sections.
It can be quite shallow at the end if you take that last sweet hit. You definitely don't want to put your feet down if you can help it.
Woody's has a sketchy launch in that there is only one safe channel with out sea urchins and its rocky.
Woody's is only good up to a little over head or eight foot faces then it starts to close out although the reform is quite rideable and often you just have to sit outside and wait for the smaller waves of the sets.
I have been surfing there quite allot this summer and I have had some of the best sessions that I can remember.
Often I have long sessions with only one to four people out and I usually know them.
Several weeks back we had the best and longest south episode that I have had in the 13 years I have been here and many of the veterans swear it was the 30 year swell.Talk about surfed out!
That was followed by a late season N/W that delivered some great surfing and epic wave sailing right here in my back yard.
Last week it was back over to the wast side for yet another advisory level south swell.

Greg,

If you're from Walnut Creek, do you go to Marin, Ocean Beach or Santa Cruz? Or, do I have it all wrong? I would love to be in any of those places.

I'm from Goleta, next to Santa Barbara, so grew up surfing waves between County Line and Jalama. Up here in the Bay Area, I'm an Ocean Beach guy, and I make forays toward Santa Cruz when OB gets too huge for me to handle.
