How does a broken pinkie feel in 54F water after 2 hours ... nurse, nurse it hurts! Not a cloud in the sky, warm spring sunshine, light offshore Santa Ana's but only a small mix of NW windswell and SW groundswell combined with an 8AM, 5 feet 6 inch high tide. Local breaks were swamped ... welcome to Lake Mead. My mate and I parked his massive 8.1 liter V8 Chevy Silverado 2500 Crew Cab Long Bed Pickup ... loaded up my Solara and blasted down PCH to Newport Beach ... we had heard that Blackie's had been good on the high tide the previous morning. Yup it was waist to chest high, with soft fun peaks but CROWDED. What a zoo ... kids, girls and old guys. Got some nice lefts before the cold water really got to my broken finger. Cost my buddy a $38 parking ticket ... one of those tricky signs that gets everyone ... you know ... no parking between X and Y on the third full moon of each month!  

Rainbow Bridge: 

Follow up: Blackies has been good every morning this week while other spots have been junk.  Yesterday we had a waist to chest high mix of short period wind swell with sneaker shoulder high sets. This morning was the same but more crowded due to the Easter weekend. Unusual weather phenom also ... we had some dense fog roll in and as the morning sun burnt if off we had a beautiful thick rainbow (fogbow) from the line-up to the rock groin!
