Those of you who were able to fend off work for just a little longer this morning scored some fun surf in Huntington Beach. This morning's swell came in looking pretty fun this morning on the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier in the 3' to 4' foot range
Monday after the storm made for sunny skies and near-perfect surf in the early morning hours.

It's been 45 years since Charlton Heston rode his horse down the beach on that strange planet and discovered that he actually was ... no, wait, I can't do it. I can't ruin it for someone who hasn't seen the movie.

How many surfers in San Clemente would like to have 180 surfboards in their garage? Resident Maurice Agnello has that many in a warehouse where he sells used boards at what often is one-fourth the price of what they would cost new.
