10/27 AM

Time: 8:30 AM
Location: Work
Tide: +6 peak
Direction: 227°
Size: 2-4'
Board: Wilken
Water Temp: 64°
Wind Conditions: None noticed

I packed both the Wilken and the pill today. Fog was thick and you couldn't see the breaks. I check Turmo first and talked to a guy that went out at the pumphouse who reported long waits, but some big sets.

So these guys are building some sort of monument at Turmo near the bathroom. This morning they must have hit a water pipe while digging because there was a geyser flowing at the top of the ramp. These guys were running around trying to figure out how to turn off the source while another guy was getting wet trying to unload fencing stuff from his truck.

Then I went to the end of Reed. Again, you couldn't see anything. I ended up guessing and taking the Wilken. As I was headed out, there was a guy packing up and I asked him if the board was too big and if it was closing out like yesterday. He the board over and said it was fine. You just have wait for shoulders.

The shoulder were few between and there were some steep sets that I let go by. When I did get in, they were mushier than the looked and I had a bit of trouble controling the tail. I think the fin is too small.
