The Sun is Back

Well after a very short bit of rain in San Diego we’re back to sunny skies and shorts weather. It’s always nice after a rain when the sun comes out. Everything seems a bit more fresh. With the east coast socked in currently with cold, snow and high winds we’re glad that we live in the Encinitas surf bubble. The Marigold 6’8″ Collector with clear bottom sits outside waiting patiently to be taken out in the surf. Just up the street consistent swell and north counties gentle reefs call to all it’s residence.

The short walk up Europa and onto Neptune reveals the Southern California dream of beach homes with epic ocean views. The palms create that tropical feel and offer shade to all the runners, bikers and surfers who walk this path.

The parking lot and beach access point offer a view of continued winter NW swell filling in. Light winds give peppered blue textures to the gleaming water. The chest to head high crumbly walls are perfect for the 6’8″ Collector back at the shop. What a shame it’s not in use this day. It’s been a few weeks now of consistent surf so the crowds seem a bit thin for this type of swell. People getting their fill I guess but all to soon there will be a batch of crappy surf and everyone will be jonesing again soon to forget all the surf they had in the past few weeks. If you haven’t made the effort to get to the beach come by the Bing Surf Shop and enjoy the sun, relax on our benches and let the Marigold colored Collector whisper like a siren in your ear. It’s a perfect excuse to slow down and enjoy what North County has to offer.
