El Porto

Salt water for breakfast, North End eggs for lunch. What's not to like??

Hi surf peeps.  Jae Cho is our newest member that suggested this meetup right out of the gate, thanks for getting the ball rolling Jae.  We have another small day in the south bay.  Get out your longboards, foamies, fishes and thick shorty.  Beginners should be able to handle this size so come on out.  With the 14 second period I'm hoping we get a little heavier wave that is more "crumbly" than "dumpy".  It has been surprisingly good the last few days at porto, so hopefully that shape holds through the weekend.

We'll meet at tower 45t at 8AM.  From there it's a trade off between too much crowd (go south) and an odd shaped wave (go north).  Beginners will probably be more comfortable north of 45th away from the crowd.  Try to be at the tower right at 8 because it will be hard to find us after we're in the water.

 

*** good news, all the meters at El Porto lot have been upgraded with credit card option! ***

    Hi Jaycin, sure beginners are welcome. It shouldn't be very big tomorrow, probably around 2'. Porto is usually bigger and heavier than the surrounding area, so be ready for the occasional 3' or 4' wave when your not looking.
