South Fills In - Day 2

The long forecasted south arrived Sunday evening and began filling in Monday and into today. Not a great swell but what with the hot weather was "warmly greeted" (pun intended) by all. I was going to split the session starting out with the 6' Quad and then switching over to the 7'6" Shlong for the fatter but longer lines at Eights. But I ended up having so much fun on the Quad I surfed it for two and half hours. Roots was pretty much empty so there wasn't much competition. Since this swell was birthed from so many thousands of mile away there were understandable waits in between sets. Most sets were chest high with the standouts going overhead and numbering multiples of quality waves. As usual the locals were shredding making it fun to surf and fun to shoot. Crowds weren't as bad as anticipated. We might get one more day of the good stuff before things taper off into flatness next week. Get it while you can!
