Surf

The surf was up last Friday. Remember how placid it looked in the photo in Pleasure?

Sure looks different in the video I took Friday, 5 October at lunch. Listen to the roar of the wind and watch the flapping of the palm fronds in the video.



Look at the jet stream analysis (courtesy of the California Regional Weather Server). Ripping winds aloft usually mean big winds below. Big winds bring big waves.



By the next morning, the water was considerably less choppy.
