While most surf forecasts showed ‘poor and stormy’ for almost everywhere in San Diego this morning, Blacks started firing for a short 3 hours with almost no one out. At around 9am, the winds shifted to offshore and the prior washing machine glassed out and slowly a few local chargers with their trusty guns started to show up. There was only about 10 guys out, and then the low tide started to drain everything, and like that the 10-15+ ft waves started to turn off. Checking other spots earlier, you would not have thought today would have been a good surfing day. But for the few out, some bombs were ridden. No special turns or barrels, just some heavy rides. Thank you El Nino.
