Barrelfest at A Street

North of the Pier at A street this morning was, as they say in California, fun. The standard for fun skim back home has made today on a scale of 1 to 1o a 12. Consistently crappy conditions back home also allows to truly appreciate every opportunity the Cali coastline offers. This morning was all about the classic wrap to barrel. Big ups to Travis who got out the water for 5 minutes to grab a sequence of me.

Sicky Sixth Street

Plenty of swell on tap this morning in Newport. 6th street offered 3-4ft wrap barrels along with fun liners. 80 degree weather, good friends and plenty of waves to share made it priceless. These are the days I live for, give thanks to God! May there be plenty more of these before I go to heaven.

Huntington HUH?

Huntington Beach known for its super fun surf may also surprise you with fun skim! At an undisclosed location, we were greeted by head high wraps and on the opposite side of this small jetty, a mini pointbreak! Unfortunately the sand was not set up as well as it could have, we made the best of it. Good call with this swell direction, back in Newport it is as flat as Magens Bay in the summer.

Offshores Across The Street

Thurs Feb 16th, The wind was swirling in all directions until all of Newport got a slight drizzle of rain. I stayed inside until I heard the wind starting to literally whip things on our porch. The rain soon died and I sprinted across the street with the camera, I had a feeling as the sun peaked through the clouds. It was getting better by the minute so unfortunately the high quality shots were only of naked waves. We were blessed enough to have someone with a GoPro in the water as well as Travis on my video cam. We got shacked at perfect lil G street for until the wind almost blew all the waves away.

Camels N liners: Clip of the Day

Not the best waves but it gives you an idea of what it was like. Later on in the sesh I pulled into one of the best waves of my life, standing up in a giant cavern.

Camels N liners

Ale and Travis cruised down to Laguna chasing a phat North West swell that was not quite hitting Newport right. The boys were ecstatic to find rideable waves having seen the pumping swell further south. Camels was the place to be offering a combination of incredibly fast water, enormous wraps and not another skimmer in sight. The following day was a bit more relaxed in Newport with fun liners with a few groms. Stay Tuned. . .

Wonderful Wedge

Yesterday's rainy weather kept Newport grom Travis Williams and I cooped up inside hoping for tomorrows forecast of sunny, west swell to be true. We were unpleasantly surprised to find unreachable skim on the highest tide for our west swell spots. We then cruised to give wedge a look which was actually pushing some waist high siders! We generously traded off siders for an hour before the tide took a turn for the worse.

Blissful Balboa

Stereotypical California winter consists of rainy, miserably cold and inconsistent sun but this has turned out to be a pristine winter thus far. Sunny, warm, and trunkable even for a caribbean boy like myself, on my first day, is saying somethin'! I have only been here for three days but have already seen a session that I will never forget. West Street turned on producing waist high siders connecting into perfect overhead peaks and had shredders Blair, Morgan, BCS, Paulo, Sam and many others. No pictures but will be featuring a mini movie soon! Search your couch for quarters and pay the two bucks for a month by month subscription to over 100 mind blowing videos! The swell is slightly missing Newport but I was able to click a couple pics of 6th Street before going out. Stay Tuned! . . .
