I made an amateur mistake this morning.
I clicked on "surf forecast", instead of "surf report". The surf forecast said it was fair, 1-3'. I grabbed my board and went for it.
My first-hand report was the 1' waves didn't have enough juice for you to do anything on, while the 2' waves closed out.
My wave of the day involved finding a wave that was 2' and stayed open long enough for me to pump twice.
Once I got back home I checked the report and it read 1-2' and Poor. NAILED IT.
Swell is on the way, though...!
