Sun Morn Chill Surf Session

  • March 10, 2013 · 8:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Another relaxing morning surf session. Beginners are welcome. There will be a few of us available to help those who need tips so don't be shy even if you have never surfed before. We will meet again at the Cairo Cowboy for some grub after surfing at 11:30am.

We'll be meeting at the grass circle, at the end of Windward Ave, on the beach side of the Windward Ave / Ocean Front Walk intersection. Check out google maps in satellite view for the exact spot. I will be there in a full black wetsuit and board wearing a Santa hat, so you can't miss me. We'll wait until about 8:45 for everyone to show up and then head down to the water.

For anyone who will be late, we will likely be surfing directly out from the circle, somewhat near the south side of the rock jetty.

If you need to rent a board Mollusk Surf Shop is right on the Northeast corner of Windward and Pacific ave. You will have to rent the day before because they don't open until 10am.

Cheers!

    For me, the meetup was a lot of fun and I had the opportunity to meet some very nice people. A small group of us (about 5) went to Cowboy Cairo aferwards and had great conversation including sharing tips on how to surf more safely. I also would like to commend Al the organizer for staying with the group the whole time despite the fact that he was not feeling well so he really showed commitment and dedication even though we understood that he was not feeling well. So thanks Al for putting this meetup together and providing us an opportunity to meet each other and catch some waves!

    The splitting apart helped people find waves that matched their skill level

    Note: the wave hogs were NOT people from this group. We actually were encouraging of each other.

    Good group, well organized. Met some cool peeps. How was grub afterwards?

    Lot's of people showed up. The group split in the water for a bit, Or at least a few of us split from the main group. Some people gathered up at the beach after surf and went to get food I presume.
    The meetup gets 4 stars fue to the cheer number of people that did show up and because I met some new people. However it doesn't get 5 because of lack of cohesion in the water.
    Venice gets only 3 Stars due to wave hogs, Water quality and qyality of waves.

      I found myself drifting away towards the south side of the breakwater from where we paddled out, but met some other people from the group in the process haha. I couldn't stay for lunch, but I will next time. You're right about the wave hogs. There were some guys out there (moreso where you were in the water) with no sense of lineup etiquette. That or they didn't care. Haha

      No problem! Surfing is one of those activities that requires so many subtleties that no question is trivial :)

    I posted this message in the message board area not realizing that i could of just posted it here (not savvy with social networks):

    I REALLY want to join the group tomorrow morning and surf but I don't know where Venice break water is? I will be driving all the way from Simi Valley and will be taking the PCH. it would be cool if I can get in contact with one of the organizers so I know who and what to look for when I arrive. I don't mind driving all the way down there to surf but I just don't want to make the trip and then not know who to look for after I get there and then miss out on surfing....hahaha maybe someone can hold a sign up like they do at an airport with my name on it....it can say "kook" haha anyways I'm still a rookie surfer and not use to meeting with strangers to surf but you guys sound like a good group of peeps. I desperately need to get back in the water and get better at surfing so I would love to get acquainted with everyone! -t

      Hi Tara, the directions given by Al are spot on and pretty descriptive. However, I did update the latitude/longitude coordinates on the map above so please take a look. The map now shows the exact location. With 30+ people attending, you will certainly find the group, provided you're on time.

    Hi, i'm looking to restart after a 2 year wait. what do you think the waves will be like that weekend? Thanks!

    March 6, 2013

    • David A.

      Sunday morning we’ll be left with knee to waist high surf at the better spots. There will, however, be some fresh, long interval swell filling in late in the day.
      air temp of 66 degrees.
      straight from swellmagnet.com
      surfline.com
      says 2-3 ft high tide should be at around 9am.
      So we will be surfing on the high tide and then tide going out.
      I've never surfed here before.

    Does anyone have a beginners board?

    March 6, 2013

  • David A.

    Just a reminder. There will be an extra learning board for whoever wants to use it. Just ask me. First come first serve.

    March 5, 2013

    • David A.

      ok then. You have claimed the board then. I can only stay till 10:30 so you will have a good 1½ to use it. (more than enough)
