Update: Sunset Beach, Bolsa Chica State Park, California. Drove past Seal Beach (looked pretty small) down PCH to Sunset Beach, home of Jesse James (the motor cycle guy, not the outlaw) and his wife, movie star Sandra Bullock (saw a big Lincoln Limo out front with a 90 year butler. Perfect conditions, warm water with light offshore and glassy, but small and inconsistant, only knee to waist but picked up a couple of nice nose rides. Fire is now 60% contained  ... at one point it looked like it would knock out the TV towers serving Los Angeles on Mt. Wilson! 


"The hazy lazy days of Summer are almost over but they are going out in a blaze. Huge wildfires in the the foothills and canyons of the San Gabriel and Sierra Nevada mountains are surrounding Los Angeles. Massive plumes of smoke are mixing with thunderheads from tropical storms south of the border (down Mexico way) and are towering up to 30,000 feet, billowing like Atomic Bomb mushrooms.


Conditions have been hot and humid with little or no wind for the dawn patrol and decent swell most of this week from Baja. You could smell the smoke at the beach!"
