that's what they call it.
it means the rainy season has started
such as it is here in socal.
This means the High pressure that hangs over us and deflects any Lows heading our way has moved east and not been replaced by another one.
This lets storms drop down the coast before heading east,
the storm fetch has a chance to point at us for awhile,
but the rain and wind reaches us about the same time as the waves.
so you travel or you try to catch little slices
before the storm winds hit
or during if it turns off shore for any length of time
(it usually doesn't)
So lately I haven't been getting in the water too much
Only a few times since the flat spell ended
On the mat you are really in the water
lately there is less ocean water in the wave
and more polluted run off
that just isn't water that I want to be in.
not so fresh
But things change and we'll see what the future brings

you could do worse
