Friday spot check: Swami’s

Posted by George J Janczyn on November 13, 2009

I have a load of pictures for you this Friday. Arrived about 7:15am. Cloudy, high tide, choppy windswell knee-to-waist high, onshore breeze from the southwest. Good for kayaking, but a couple of longboards out too. Forecast says the swell should build into tomorrow. Also grabbed a few shots from Pipes, about 1/2 mile south of Swami’s at San Elijo (starts at the picture with the ramp). About the last picture: when I parked my Jeep, I was the only car on the whole street. When I came back, I found two cars boxing me in, even though the street was still empty. The car in front even ignored the red zone for handicapped access. Maybe my GOT SURF? bumper sticker and UCSD parking permit in the windshield didn’t qualify me as a local? Coincidentally, speaking of locals, the Reader just came out with a Swami’s locals-only story. Click photos to enlarge.

    Great photos! Not that much surf but way more than campus when we checked it about an hour ago.
