Surf in Goleta lately has been pretty minimal, so we dug up some pictures from a few
months ago of a pretty little morning session.
We took a leisurely stroll out to Plover Point to catch a few waves and enjoy the beginning of a new day.
We were between swells, but we figured there would be something to surf.
And if not, a great morning for a walk.
As a wise man once said before the Internet was invented, “You don’t know until you go”….
Sands had some rare sets and a very small crowd.
And a slight offshore made the conditions ideal.
And a handful of folks were enjoying clean but very shallow take offs at the point.
Some little lines were holding their shape down into the cove, if you had a long enough board.
Nothing to write home about, but better than a sharp stick in the eye…
Which is why we didn’t post these photos months ago….
But, the underlying theme of all these photos is, we live in a Beautiful Place!
Surf, or no surf.
So we braved the mellow crowd, caught a few little peelers and were about to leave when…
This silhouette caught my eye.
Someone was doing beautiful things with these marginal little waves.
Giving me a reason to stick around a little longer.
It was Sierra Emrick, a fine young surfer that we have run into out here before.
And she was having a good old time goofing on these little waves.
Female longboarders have such elegant style. We always enjoy watching them.
Just another amazing morning in good old Goleta.
