PB do you have any insight on this event (being local) I’m looking for something different to do with WD Jr (AKA Battle Puppy) and thought that this might be a good way to introduce him to the sport and spend a Dad/Son day (watching it not joining). Is there a decent turn out of competitors? Any suggestion for a good spot to eat (with an ample supply of hot Coca) or any other local knowledge would be appreciated.........................





The first event in our three contests “Rise Above Plastics” Surf Contest Series is coming up on Sunday, November 21 at Linda Mar in Pacifica. All proceeds raised from the contest will go to our Rise Above Plastics program which seeks to reduce the impact of plastics in the marine environment by raising awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution and by advocating for a reduction of single-use plastics and the recycling of all plastics.

The Taco Bell on the beach is the best!
Not sure about the weather this Saturday though:

Sat...SW winds 5 to 15 kt...becoming S 10 to 20 kt...with occasional gusts to 25 kt in the afternoon. Wind waves 2 to 5 ft. NW swell 5 to 7 ft at 12 seconds. Showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms.

Gimme a holler and I'll give you the skinny!

No deal on the Taco Bell idea…………….Promises made to Mrs. WD before she left for Portland with kid unit #1 this morning……………..No 1) Rum 2) Beer 3) Fast food………Add in a bath every night and in bed before 22:00 ( these rules apply to WD JR not me).

Contest is on Sunday OK to call mid morning 10:00 ish??

Sunday: WSW wind 13 to 18 kt becoming WNW in the morning. Showers and possibly a thunderstorm. Mixed swell...WNW 8 ft and WSW 2 ft. Wind waves 4 to 5 ft.

Weather looks a little chitty, this might serve as a good alternative: http://www.seabowl.com/
