You gotta do, what you gotta do.
When the surf in your backyard is non existent, you gotta road trip.
So Goleta Surfing got up before the sun and headed north, to find this mythical south swell
we’d been hearing about.

When we got to our destination, it didn’t look too overwhelming, but
better than anything we’d seen in a while.
Clean, glassy, and there were sets….

When you have to get up early everyday for work, the last thing you wanna do on your day off is
get up early. But when you’re standing on the beach, early on a beautiful, semi tropical
morning, it all seems worthwhile.

This dude got shacked for a second. He was on a knee board, and it looked
pretty dang fun.

The offshore winds were helping to hold up the waves early on, but they
soon died down, and later turned onshore.
A familiar pattern for south central California.

This guy dropped in all happy, but then he was looking for the
emergency brake when his right turned into a left.
