half moon bay, california: mavericks
« on: September 29, 2016, 10:16:16 AM »

Hey everyone
i was curious about half moon bay
i am heading back out to california from november 10 - 15th
and i was wondering about the swell that time of year.

i would love to say that i'm totally going to surf it but i'm obviously not

however, i would love to go and check out some people surfing it and
if it is worth it regardless of whether there were waves or not...

i'm flying into SFO and should be leaving the airport around 1130 once
we get the rental car and our luggage

after that, we're hitting up the golden gate bridge and then heading to
petaluma for a few beers at the brewery.

anything else i should check out in my short amount of time there?

i'm going to be checking out spring lake park again because it was such
a cool place to hang out and if i can scratch it, given the time constraints,
maybe a day up in the redwoods.

but who knows where my love for the road will take me

Spot On...Spot On...Come in Spot On!

There is actually a protected spot right next to it that you can surf. With a 5 mil, booties, and gloves if you have them.

Half Moon Bay is a little mini adventure in and of itself.  Actually getting to Mavericks is tricky, the guys that tow surf it take a ski out of the harbor but for spectators and paddle in guys you have to park out at the dirt lot and hike probably like a half mile to the base of the cliff.  You really can't see the lineup very well from there, the best vantage point is probably the top of the cliff but I don't know if you can get out there....you couldn't when I was there but that was quite a few years ago).
