Here's some pretty impressive sponging! Features the fellas.. Lewy Finnegan, George Humphreys, Davis Blackwell and Damien Martin. A small group of highly talented individuals who I have come to know well over the last few years. Each possessing their own unique set of talents that inspire and challenge me and we had some great experiences together last year. Some of these waves have been seen in individual clips but none pieced together in a manner which shows the context of the sessions that went down. 3 days of surfing, all just around home.

Monday should be a little smaller as both the wind swell and South West swell back down. The Southerly energy will be dominant, but the size will drop and the wait between sets will increase. This fade will continue into Tuesday, but if you’re patient, there should be some fun chest to shoulder high sets rolling through at the best South facing beaches.

Tuesday will have a little something to tide but nothing to get real excited about. The better South facing beaches will see waist high plus sets in the morning and then that swell will be gurneyed off to the hospice in the afternoon.

We’ll also see some medium interval, (12-14 seconds), roll in from a 310 degree angle and put the best West facing beaches in the waist high plus zone.

Thursday holds a little promise as some new, 8-10 second interval NW wind swell picks up and puts the better West facing breaks into the waist high plus zone. We’ll also see some super steep South swell with 12-14 second intervals roll in from a 180 degree angle. This swell will only pay a visit to most exposed beaches in the OC and San O’ areas. Top spots should dish up waist to chest high sets.
