Carlsbad Lefts

A few random selections from a recent aqueous outing.
Fall is a great time to be a surfer in California.

Super Scooper

A fire broke out today along the Camp Pendleton border with Oceanside. Checking the waves at Oside (perfect offshore conditions but small) we saw the super scooper coming down and making runs into the harbor, picking up water and then dumping a few miles inland over the fire line.

I ended up going for a swim later on with the water housing to get some wave shots with the smoke in the background.

I drive by this lagoon opening every day, when there is a low enough tide and the right conditions, these little 6-inch peelers come reeling down the sides of the sand banks. Kind of makes you want to take a shrinking pill and pull into some stand up tubes. Until Joe Stalder invents those, I will have to be content to watch them go by unridden.
