Long Flat Spell

Surf's been pretty small for a while now. Major high pressure in the SPAC has blocked the formation of any big storms, only now is there something coming our way from a storm that kicked up off the Ross Ice Shelf last week.

The biggest news was the Lockheed Fire which has burned off around 7K acres of forest and wildland. Firefighters worked hard and no houses were lost. The cool weather and relatively light winds didn't hurt either. Go marine layer!

Jesus and Maria are glassing Ghostbuster 2, fins go on Friday or so, it should be out the door early next week.

I haven't done much surfing or paddling. The smoke's been pretty intense and I'm not all that excited about exercising in a 7,000 acre campfire.

Looking forward to some decent weather and a few good waves again.
