Sloppy Seconds

1448 600x380 1

March 29, 2010.
Classic, beautiful, Goleta spring day.
Warm enough to hit the beach, surf or not.

We’ve been keeping an eye on our favorite Spring spot.
The sand seems to be slowly filling in, but lately that lovely March breeze keeps mixing
things up a little much. So we shuffle over to old reliable: College Point.

1251 480x340 1

And this point does a pretty good job blocking that funky Cheese wind.

And, if you paddle around the point a little further, that wind hits at an
angle that’s damn near offshore. Sometimes.

Meanwhile, back in the lineup, the boys jockey for position.

1202 600x485 1
1063 465x358 1
2733 555x398 1

While the smaller waves were jumbled and funky, the set waves were big
enough to push through the slop and cleaned up purty nice.

Anybody know what that boat is?
She’s a real beauty.
Probably something to do with all the sand they’re dumping at Goleta Beach.

4021 480x460 1

4136 600x467 1
3921 600x347 1
1349 360x287 1

There were just a few guys in front of the rock, and they
were getting plenty of rides.

1745 600x329 1
2834 600x407 1
6100 600x381 1
4419 675x432 1

But this guy gets the prize for finding his own peak, away from the pack, and getting
barrelled several times.

890 600x516 1
976 450x360 1
1843 600x532 1
1943 428x450 1

Always gotta throw in a couple of wipe out shots, just for kicks.

2042 461x600 1
2178 540x422 2
2436 395x381 1

When there are long lulls, you get some shots like this.

3625 508x600 1
3724 236x263 1
4322 380x259 1
4622 600x360 1

So there you go. The surf keeps coming.
Get ready for the wind swells.
