went to bolsa chica...kinda felt like HB/northside of the pier...we got destroyed LOL

my friend described it as "being in a washing machine" LOLOL

that's what it was...paddle out...wave gains height before it hits you, dunks you under, and you're pulled in a couple different directions and smashed against the rocks...whoops.

ended up hitting the small rocks after being smashed by a wave and rash all over my back

went back to seal beach and had a ball!

Made it out today...

No surf...maybe a rideable wave every 20 mins or so...but I spent some time just getting my paddle speed up...saw on YouTube that one reason I nose dive when the wave comes is because I am not paddling fast enough to match the wave speed. When the wave hits me quickly it lifts up the back of the board and pushes me down into the water

Was out for 2-1/2 hours....phew... exhausted

Bolsa river jetty is fickle you need to catch it when the tide is high, Been waiting for a call  we can go for a day down to SanO or Doheny hit me up!

I also heard that blackies and Newport Beach and Doheny are both good for Longboards!

I have been dipping in the ocean at least once a week... Next couple times I might be out or either Saturday or Sunday of this weekend or next Wednesday

Blackies is a great beginner spot and you can hit "Mutt Lynches" for a schooner after your session!

I have a long board abandoned at my house by my sons friend. I am going to take it to SealBeach and paddle around on it and maybe even learn to surf. Mounting it to a motorcycle is intriguing too.

Do it!

It's nice to get out

I can get you to stand up on white wash (after waves break)...but honestly I have only caught a couple good long waves at Bolsa Chica with am instructor giving me a good push before the wave starts breaking

Git after it Bob should be some decent surf coming Seal Beaches way due to the hurricane down south it breaks best after low tide when its on the rise.

Went to Bolsa Chica again today...a "good beginner beach"

Had a really tough time getting past the wave break :lol:

The waves just came so frequently I kept getting pushed back

Only popped up once...got lazy and waited for whitewash to do it in

And quite a few times I caught waves on my knees...which is a BAD habit...

May not be a workout for advanced surfers, but boy am I beat! Just fighting waves trying to paddle out...feel great though! Mellows me out...

Flat at seal beach yesterday evening... caught a couple just for the exercise and the water temp was good enough that you didn't need a wetsuit...felt good!

Still going at least once a week

Flat at seal Beach again this evening...popped up quite a bit today but mostly on broken waves

Only 30 mins in the water but I tried to catch as many waves as possible which felt like a Sprint. My heart rate was nice and high as I paddled over and over. Great workout!

Water temp was pretty good too...I actually went out in trunks. The wind after the sun went down, however, was quite chilly. It was colder in the air than the water...
