The late summer swell is slowly starting to develop

August 14, 2010

Well it’s been an unusual summer….cloudy and rainy about every damn day since I retired. Today the sun is shining there is a little clean south west swell and cannon beach is starting to do it’s late summer thing. We are starting to get a few people in to surf and the locals are getting into the water mainly due to the clean waist to shoulder high swell. I have been renting our paddle boards out this year more….I guess the craze has finally reached Yakutat. I haven’t seen any kite boarders yet this year but that’s understandable due to the lack of the westerly sea breezes. The Vans surf crew will be in town the 1st through the 8th of September. It’s always fun to watch the pros at work….they’re pretty awesome. Here’s a shot sent to us by a cruise ship pilot enjoying the clear day we had a few days ago.
