Well, it's Monday and the first full work week of 2013, welcome back to reality!
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
Orange County surf was a little smaller Tuesday than Wednesday, but waves were also a lot cleaner. With almost all the SW out of the water and the WNW swell coming in nice and strong, Newport's Blackies was sure to be the zone all the way up to 28th St.
It would seem that all of Newport Beach thought the same as the lineup was at capacit
Orange County was flat: as in 0 to 1 foot for a week, making most of us a little edgy. But was a very small bump Sunday of 1 to 2 feet worth the freezing 51 degrees to get wet? Some of the guys said no way as they parking lot surfed, looking at the waves and talking to those who did brave the cold water. Some did make the paddle out

It's been a good week for surf with a few back-to-back swells rolling through. Today's midweek mid-morning surf had every local from Newport to north Huntington Beach out on south side Huntington Beach Pier. Swell fun 2' to 3' with some bigger sets, and some real nice offshore winds through the entire morning. Rain tonight with a chance tomorrow
As the first band of this storm moved through Orange County, it rained until the late afternoon hours Thursday, to which the surf crews hit the lineup.

Jeff Brion and Rosanne Ramirez have stepped into some unorthodox waters, but they're confident they can keep their head above it. The two are holistic health practitioners in Laguna Beach, where their company, Feeling Functional, opened the Float Lounge in June.

Weekends are for fun and Saturday's rain and fog along the coast was not going to stop weekend warriors from hitting the lineup. Newport Beach's 54th Street was firing in the morning hours and had a full lineup out there wearing booties, gloves and 4.3s. As the morning hours moved into afternoon, the playful 2' to 3' turned into wind-blown 1' to
The sun was out this morning, which is a good start to the day with us having a cold front moving through with some rain in the past 48 hours.
As the clans started showing up along the coast, the news of sun turned into stoke as the waves looked fun - even with a warble in the face.

Leila and Lucas Marshall joined Jason in the Alumni Suite. Lucas was awarded the honor of riding the Zamboni between the second and third periods.
What can we say about Wednesday's beautiful weather but Beautiful! The coastal highs hit 75 degrees but did seem a little chilly in the shade. Not a cloud in the sky and a slight breeze made for a great beach day, but not really the same greatness in the water with very few good waves rolling through in the 2-foot range. More warm weather Thursd
Small clean surf Friday morning but with the swell rising, it made for fun sets with flat spells. Brett Simpson, Brad Ettinger and a few other Hurley team riders were in the lineup in Huntington Beach. Jack Boyes was still killing it right next to the pier. Swell will increase throughout the day with a nice swell filling in and peaking on Super

The weekend's west swell hung around Monday, pumping head high to 3-foot overhead. The weather and being Monday kept the lineup clear most of the day. The sun made an appearance in the late afternoon hours. Still waves out there Tuesday, but down just a little from Monday. Water did warm up to 57ish degrees but might dip again with the new WNW s
Peaky lines Wednesday morning all through Orange County, with the incoming West and the outgoing WNW lines meeting at the shore and making for wedges and peaks into the afternoon. Sun was out for a few hours before the incoming weather system rolled in during the evening. Possible chance of rain Thursday, but the surf should still be fun in the
Today was one of those, "Do I need to get out of bed?" days, with dark, cold clouds socking in the day. But if you fought through all that and hit the waves, you scored! Sandbars and beach breaks were pretty good this morning going into the afternoon with peaky conditions, but with the tides on our side, making for barrels in most of Huntington
The surf after the storm in most Orange County spots was anywhere from OK to real fun, with Salt Creek looking as fun as it gets with ramps and barrels on every peak Salt Creek holds. The Point firing barrel rights, Middles sectioning for airs on the back side of the section and barrels running the front of the section and Gravels a little small
Monday after the storm made for sunny skies and near-perfect surf in the early morning hours. At first light myself, Brett Simpson, Teddy Navarro and videographer David Lee Scales looked over the surf and like most people thought, "over it, too cold and too small." As Simpo and Scales took off to get some work done - Brett has a lot of work in O
