As many of those who don wet suits know, it's shark season. They start to lurk in the waters with arrival of NFL preseason, and don't leave till the Super Bowl.
Since August 24th, when Stintson Beach was closed after a sighting, there have been 4 sightings at Ocean Beach, most recently September 14th, when a man surfing 2-3 foot waves around Sloat Ave watched a shark rip into a seal. Upon sharing this info with other surfers, most chose to stay in the water. They must have figured he was full.
Our weekend surf forecast is looking pretty fun with a combination swell from the south and some windswell, hopefully it will be around 4 feet, with some slightly larger sets. For more wave details, I suggest SURFPULSE.
May the only teeth you feel be in your mouth.
