Ponto, South Carlsbad, December 9

Got out this morning for a three hour session in some fun surf, first time in the water in about a month. A solid NW swell, light offshore winds, full sun, water not too cold, occasional freight train barrels — empty. All the surfers were packed at the jetties so I had the barrels at the south end to myself for quite a while. The lines were shifting alot and it was tough for me to position properly, so today’s haul of photos is not too impressive. The surf should be a little larger tomorrow, hoping that the sky stays clear for good morning light and another try.
