Short Burst of Indian Summer

Both the weather and the wave action cooled today as a low pressure trough drifted across Norcal and the south swell continued to decline. Although the early morning paddle out was almost a carbon copy of the last three days, by afternoon temps had dropped precipitously. The end to a short but nice run of "Indian Summer."

Surf was fun though, with light offshores and fun low tide peelers. I was in the water pre-sunrise and paddled into my first wave at 0700. I had the place to myself for 40 minutes, bagging 12 waves before anyone joined me. I caught eight more before calling it a morning and paddling back to the pier where I launched.

The marine layer is back and tomorrow promises to be overcast and chilly. So long gorgeous sunrises and gentle warm offshore breezes.
