surf report(s): Surfer Bob in San Diego redux (Rod! AS points!)

Had a great week in San Diego. Long days of technical sessions and
conferencing, eves of parties, mornings of dawn patrols and scoring AS
points. Surf was kind of small, but that's June in southern CA. It's
fun to be back in my old neighborhood.

Monday morning- Surfed by the p*** in OB. Waist to shoulder high south
pushing through. Longer lefts, fatter rights. Water nearly too warm
for a fullsuit, but I didn't quite want to trunk it. Lots of backside
runs into foamy walls.

Wednesday morning- dawn patrol at The Arena. Surf quite small. Made
it down there a half hour late due to two nights of late conference
parties. BA had already come and gone, but Tweed was still there, with
his little dog Toto (not actually its name, but it paints the right
picture). Good to meet you, senor! Shot the breeze in the parking lot
and met some of the locals, eventually concluded the filling in tide
was not going to compensate for a basic lack of swell. Headed for
conference, with brief but satisfying marvelous coffee and almond
croissant interlude.

Friday morning- dawn patrol at OB. Harder and harder to get up at dawn
after days of not to bed until the wee hours. Found OBsurfer. Good to
meet you senor! Shot the breeze, met some of the locals, waited for
the early onshore breeze wind to swing offshore, then paddled out with
Kneedforspeed for a fun little windswell surf. My best wave was a
speedy little chest high right with enough oomph to get my quadfin
into 3rd gear. OB has been photodocumenting the scene at his beach for
40+ years and he knows absolutely everybody, who's hot, who's not,
who's got the right attitude, who's good but plateau-ing, who's still
moving up the ladder. Guy is a serious cultural resource, who spins
many great tales.

Saturday midday- snorkeling at Marine Room with the family. Surf
bigger than last time I was here, water sub-optimally murky, Leopard
sharks generally scarce. . LJS is quite a scene on the first sunny
weekend of summer! Then time to scoodaddle to dance to a rockin'
zydeco band at Bird Park

Played phone tag with BA, but didn't work quite hard enough to catch
up with the King of L* J****. It is a pleasant problem to have too
many friends to see 'em all in one week! I'll try a little harder next
time, senor!

And then there was Yooper. Actually, I should say, and then there
wasn't Yooper. Despite her cheery invitation of earlier this spring,
http://groups.google.com/group/alt.surfing/msg/f9f6cffaf7358b83?and
promise to never stand us up again http://groups.google.com/group/alt.surfing/msg/5d2ffd680eb00c0f?
Yoops was quite scarce this week.

OK, I think that makes 3 more points for me, Rod.

And last but not least, the food content:
new discoveries: Mama's Lebanese in North Park! Italian tapas place at
30th & University. Buca de beppo in Old Town is the most seriously
Italian place I've been in years.
old friends: Jasmine's. The best dim sum in town has relocated to a
larger, nicer place on Claremont Mesa Blvd. And then there's the
venerable Pizza Port, with 2 dozen different locally made microbrews
and pizza still great after all these years. And the creme brule at
the Crest Cafe hasn't let me down once in 20 years.

AwooOOOO!!!

Gotta take what you can get this time of year.
surf in my hood has been consistent, waist to chest,
short period slop and whitewater chop, but it beats dehydration.

i concur that gb (obsrfr) is both good to hang with and knowledgeable.
one of these days i'll actually catch up with him in his hood.

Sorry I missed you. Moab was scorching. 100+ degrees every day, and
the only water around was fresh. I found a great restaurant in
Prescott, Arizona. Nouveau cuisine, if you like that kinda stuff. A
mango marscapone mousse in a filo shell with a chardonney cream sauce.
The cute young waitress is from the gulf coast, surfs, and wants to
move to California. She asked me about Blacks and the nude beach.

Travelling is such a great way to make new friends.

Sounds like quite an adventure, motorcycle dude. June is the hottest
month in the Sonoran desert, I'm told. Monsoonal rain cools things off
(a bit) starting in July or so. But no two ways about it: the desert
is hot. Teaches one to love the night.

The GP2K7 Cottage-on-the-Avon will be busting at the seems. Waiting to
hear of a confirmation from George of the Jungle and his fine
collection of coffee beans and custom roasts. The Mind is already
talking of "consistent head high and better surf with light
offshores.... or better" and G of the J says, "Chances for good surf
are excellent."

Maybe the Augustan Savant will bring The Prescioussss north in the
event The Mind fails to deliver and we are left with only some small
rollers to ride.

GP Sunday should feature a paipofest as my new shaper from VaB,

The surf thang is brand new so I can't say. The question is better
focused on the rider bec as you know, riders can ride just about
anything in all kinds and sizes of waves. It's sister clone I rode in
small Tres Palmas a few years back.

When is GP? Check this chart:

Could be. Neither Firefox nor IE work for me. But in Firefox I can
right click "view image" and they come in. Could be a murky problem
with one particular proxy server I use.

These work. So how many years of data do these figures represent? It
doesn't say.Given the jaggy appearance of the peaks, I'm guessing it's
only 1 or a very few years?

When to go seems clear.

About 100 yrs of data. I think the "crudeness" of the data plots has
more to do with the crudeness of the tools when the plots were made
(early 90s) than the number of data points. When to go IS clear...
maybe that's why we've had so many evacuations :)

Yup. Boy, looking at the peakiness of the graph, I imagined that I was
seeing the statistical influence of individual storm events in a
rather small population of events. It is very interesting that a 100
year average shows such a very distinct, unimodal peak. Especially
with anecdotal accounts of hurricane season getting linger in recent
years.

So GP hits that peak pretty much, yes?

Were my houseboy Rodrigo here, and not in Europe on a beer and wine tasting tour
of Hungarian vineyards, he would answer you with some kind of techass data
weenie explanation. The real answer is in the number of times the GP has been
favored with good waves and evacuations by the Dare County Police due to
hurricanes. A bunch.

Come on man you of all people should know that if the sum of the

I guess. This is a complex phenomenon he's describing with a simple
graph and I am approaching it with zero assumptions. I just kind of
expected sigma to be bigger, or kurtosis higher, especially if we have
some reason to believe that the phenomenon we're measuring might be
moving over time (got climate change?). Moving targets photographed
with longer shutter speeds make for fuzzier pictures.

You know, OK?

Classic...miss the forest for the trees....

You need to factor in the seasonal variation in tropical storm site
of
origin and average track...

Sept is an excellent month if you want to evacuate.

Mid October is good for surfing...average storm track is more
out at sea then.

NOW we're cooking with gas! That would be, like, on beyond waterskiing
(with 2 skis). Or in between iceskating and strapped-in surfing. Or
somewhere. But definitely off the regular surfing map.

You'd have to be standing up, of course. Paddling in is a technical

Oh, Rodrigo doesn't plan to surf these things. If he did he'd go with the paddle
one tow one on a string method he uses with his paipo and beer cooler. Probably
he'll strap them on like snowshoes the first time it snows more than 4 inches
and make his way to the big gov't accounting office in DC where he'll crunch
numbers with other data weenies until global warming floods downtown.

Re: GP2K7, Surfer Bob in San Diego redux (Rod! AS points!)



Our Sept dates for GP have treated us very well. Eight years, two
evacs with good surf until the witching hour, usually when the peak
attendance is beginning to wind down anyway. Five of 8 years have had
tropical storm influenced swells, and if you strike the Oct 2001 year
it would be 5 of 7, or better yet, if we'd had GP in the usual week of
2001, Erin would have been a fine swell producer for 6 of 8 years. Of
course, 2001 would have been an eerie experience with 9/11 on Tuesday.
I remember surfing Erin's swell in OC/Md and Delaware that morning.

As to the historical charts... they represent about 100 yrs of data up
through 1992. Even with some of the late season storms in recent
years, I doubt that the overall curve would have shifted much. Our GP
results tend to confirm this! It's also one of the reasons the ESA
Easterns have chosen their week (usually follows GP by one week).

Erin produced one of the better swells in recent memory in SNE. I barely
slept in anticipation, and was greeeted at dawn with overhead perfection
at that spot in front of the Ocean Mist. The second session at that "K"
spot was smaller, but perfectly lined up and peeling offt the
reef/point. It was a shock getting back home that afternoon and seeing
the towers crumble on TV. Everyone in the water was blissfully
unaware....

GP is definitely in a good spot at the right time of year. My family
camped in Ocracoke when I was about 6 y.o. I mainly reamember the green

Two more have confirmed for this year's GP -- George of the Jungle and
Bisquito Grande, 9 current or former AS'ers. Bunks are about busting

I hope George brings his coffee roasting gear, he's got the beans down

Oh boy. *squeak squeak* Someone pack some teflon lube. On the positive
