Another high surf advisory is in effect until late Sunday for all beaches. Especially south San Diego Co.

Agree the one labled San Diego I had pegged as Swami's... :D



The Seal Beach Jetty one is classic I surfed there thousands of times over the years (I learned to surf at the crabs jetty when I was 12 which can be seen at the bottom of the photo). When I met my buddy's down in Long Beach last year I brought up the time we walked the rocks to the Harbor entrance marker, Dale said that he tells this story all the time and a lot of people don't believe it.

Well the Harbor Marker is huge and after the paddle across the jetty near the parking lot and the tricky hike on the rocks out there (close to half a mile) we had to take shelter behind the Marker since the waves were even bigger than in that picture and breaking far beyond the jetty point the white water was crashing around us and we had to calculate the time between sets to figure out how much time we had to scramble down the rocks, throw our boards out in the water, dive off and swim to our boards and start scratching to get outside the break line.

When we caught waves the ride was from outside the Harbor entrance to well inside the crabs over a quarter mile, you could do every maneuver in your quiver three times, even though I was in triathlete condition at that time my legs were sore after completing a ride. It was impossible to paddle out from the beach (I also was as strong a paddler you will ever find) because the southerly direction swell raps around the jetty and goes in reverse when a swell that big hits like a giant cyclone of current.

When Dale, Jeff, and Ollie made it in we would either repeat the paddle, walk, dive (which probably took an hour the first time) or call it a day, we saw no one else out when we cycled through, we decided to count our blessings and head in... 8)

^Once we(surfing buddies) discovered this spot, we called it Ray Bay. That warm water outflow attracts lots of stingrays. 75yd rides were common on better days.
