It’s a slightly milder morning at OB today and by that I mean onshore winds and mist are lighter and the fog is thinner with faint patches of blue pushing through, but surf is in the meager knee to waist-high range, textured and crumbly.  The big incoming tide change courtesy of Monday’s new moon may make things slightly more interesting were you to get in the water but jogging, beachcombing, dogwalking, working, younameit are likely better calls.

For a retrospective, here’s today in Surfpulse report history from 2005: “Small 1-2′ foot surf crumpling near shore. Nobody out surfing this morning. Empty lineup, empty parking lot, and eerily calm except for a few noisy birds pickin’ through the beach scrap. Its another day for first timers to practice standing up on a long board, or for swimmers to paddle around without fear of getting rolled by the surf. The sky is overcast, but the fog has lifted – so it isn’t sitting right on top of the beach like it has been recently.”
