Surf in Goleta lately has been pretty minimal, so we dug up some pictures from a few

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.

Surf, or no surf.

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.

Female longboarders have such elegant style. We always enjoy watching them.

Just another amazing morning in good old Goleta.
