Salt Creek, Laguna Beach was a sunny cold wind blown surf/beach day. Orange County will have surf through the rest of the week and weekend.

Salt Creek sunny but chilly beach day

The sun was out Thursday in Orange County, which for me was a very welcome sight. With the temperatures down in the 50's day time and low 40's evening, I'm very happy to see the sun out trying to warm me up from a Hawaiian Popsicle.

We have waves in the water, but with the winds being a big buzz kill for surfing you have to hit it early and at high tide swell spots. I hit Salt Creek later in the morning trying to time the tide and the winds, but I came up on the short end of things as the wind hit it earlier then I had thought it would.

More swell all week with a big one coming our way for the New Years. Keep your 4/3 wet suites and 4 mil booties ready, we might be having some real fun soon.
