Fishing in SD -- 7/13/05
Date: July 13, 2005
Words: Work once again led me to San Diego. After my quite interesting planning conference, I made a beeline to La Jolla, where I met up with my good friend, surfing icon Bill Andrews. Always generous and giving, Bill loaned me his 6'0" fish board. With a bit of excitement and apprehension, I once again entered the arena that is W/S.
There seemed to be a firm westerly swell (windswell?) coming in, intersecting with the rising southerly groundswell. Winds were side-onshore and tide was high. All this conspired for some peaky, crumbly action with the crowd spread out.
I was my usual kook self, but managed to catch a few fun ones. Couldn't really find the sweet spot of the board, but oh well.Coming in, I of course got berated by BA for my prowess (or lack thereof). Well deserved I might add.
Aloha from Paradise,
