We just missed it. Does anyone have a spare spot for the Pato and Lillibel families. We would split up but we'd love to be there. And of course share the cost and bring extra food. Pato's arriving Friday night, then stay until Monday. I'll check with Jeff to see what their schedule is.

Thanks to all!!!

Thanks to Ian & Chris we now have a spot for the Pato & Lillibel clans. We can't wait to see everyone this year and will be bringing some good grub to share.

I might be on photography duty.  The surf was really good for the first time in months this past week and I oversurfed my shoulder.  Really painful right now....

I hope no is bailing due to some rain in the forecast. Bring a ez up and a tarp.  The tribe must gather together.

Definitely planning a day trip on Saturday from Grover Beach. Have (9) 13 1/2" x 13 1/2" x 1/2" layup panels for fins to give away if anyone is interested. Unique panels. Came from a large wall panel in a CSI lab from the City of Torrance. I'll bring 'em with. Also, if anyone, and I mean just one 'cause I have a small pickup, betwen Grover and plaskett wants a ride, just PM me.

EDIT: Sorry. Been watching the weather and the rain chances just got too high for a day trip. Stay "high" and dry.

I will be there too.   I missed last year but I wont miss this year, whether hell or high water.   I am bringing a quiver of rain ponchos and am ready to learn and play.   I will be pulling into fun land around dinner on friday evening.  I will be looking for leftovers and food scraps as usual.  I cant wait to see everyone again.  

PS.   If somebody is feeling discouraged by the weather or surfcast please tell me and my cadre so we can park and camp at your spot!  My cell is 831 5152752

Swaylocks 2016 in hours and this thread is so quite.   Put down the epoxy and get ready to live.   Swaylocks Big Sur has been the highpoint of my year for over a decade.   Lets keep the faith.   And remember, " Ambrose would go!"

I'm planning on arriving Friday afternoon.  I'll bring my pointy nosed 8'4" thingy.  It probably won't be enough, though.  I'm hoping the surf is going to be smaller than the forecast.  The winds are supposed to be good all day Fri-Sun.

You guys really missed it, you should have been here yesterday. 

Just got back from Big Sur, yes it rained, yes the surf was huge and yes we still had a great time.  More stories to tell later but we all had a geat time and there was not as much rain as we expected.   Willow Creek was frightening but lots of great drops and rides occured.  And for the more mentally stable Molera gave us some fun playfull waves saturday afternoon till dark.  Untill next year thanks for the fun.  Darren

Sorry we didn't make it.  You guys know for me it's a family affair and the girl's didn't want to sit in the rain.  We met up with Sr. Pato in Ventura and got some really fun waves.  Next year can we try to make it for September? In the meantime more pics please.

So many friends didn't make it because of the weather. Maybe a make up weekend in the spring at Jalama?  They take reservations now.

Hi Mark - 

That's an idea.  My only concern with spring time at Jalama is the wind.  It sometimes blows like a son of a bitch there!

Mr. Mellor, it always blows like an s.o.b. there in the spring. West winds come up by 10 or 11 am. most days. That is one crazy section of coastline with the currents, weather, and offshore rock reefs. Scary place to boat around. It definitely is a demarcation line. North of Arguello is one thing, south of Conception is another. They don't call it "Devil's Jaw" for nothing.

It did not rain. It was not cold. Epic surf for those that dared.......... see you on the flip side.
