Tuesday January 9TH, 2024


A lovely morning at Avila Beach. It was 35° and clear with an offshore breeze that would strengthen with the sunrise. The surf was 2 to 3 foot and the water temperature was 52°. I did a Poly Pier/Reef Buoy loop counterclockwise.   

The wind chop made the leg from the end of the Poly Pier to the reef buoy require some extra work. With an offshore wind the chop like today the chop will lessen as you get closer to shore so I had to just keep swimming and enjoy it when I could tell the chop was getting smaller and cruse it in to the finish.     

Today's swell at the Diablo Buoy was 4 to 5 feet. The swell is predicted to be back up to 9 feet on Thursday and to taper back to 4 to 5 feet by Saturday, so I'll be here at 7 on Thursday and Saturday and 11 on Sunday, with Thursday's swim a possible Olde Port Beach route.
