Finding Surf in the August Fog

Hot Temps inland make for the strong north convection belt winds along our beaches. It builds up the advection fog, thick fog that just hangs over our surf.

It also brings colder temps to the water. Fingers freeze.

There are a few days, here and there, where the fog gets pushed off a bit.

They boys have taken to sleeping in the tents and in the yard at our house – calling it a mini surf camp – early morning – hit the beach.

Fog. Blech.

This month I was able to go on an official surf lesson session. I had a lot of fun taking my Tigershark Skills – observed and experienced – to the lesson. I’m officially a Surf Instructor.

Jon gave up surf instructing for just plain surfing. Last year he went out several times a week to go to lessons. This year he’s been pretty busy. He’s in California for a week in the woods. Here’s to hoping that September will bring cooler temps to the valley, and less fog to our shores!
