After almost two weeks of bummed-out reports and general malaise regarding how flat it’s been lately, today wasn’t so terrible. Fine, it was three foot at the most, but that’s 3 foot more than yesterday, and way better than sitting on your ass. Beginners: the waves are perfect for you right now. They’re small and gentle. For others, from the photos and reports it looks like west-facing beaches have something to play with today. Not much, but something. You have enough time to squeeze in an afternoon session since the sun never seems to go away these days. Stormsurf says things should pick up throughout the week thanks to a New Zealand swell, so find a Kiwi and kiss them a lot.
