Like Yesterday But Smaller

The swell is backing down slowly, putting up 1-3 ft. faces with long waits in between sets. There weren't as many waves per set, the standout waves were only going chest high and there were very few of those.

I paddled the SUP out at 0611 for a two hour session. Stroked over to Yellow House and stayed there the whole time except for a brief foray into one of the inside reefs. Jamie was on it in the dark, surfing Sarges. I was alone over at YH until Greg joined me at about the 30 minute mark, followed by Priscilla and Patrick.

Greg got the wave of the day, and that was it, there was only one, but he got a good ride out of it. I was hoping for a sunny sunrise, but no luck. Over three weeks now without a clear sky sunrise. Well like Greg said, Fall is coming.
