Henrick’s Surf Update: Wetsuits Off

By Henrick Karoliszyn

As the water temperature increased this week, surfers were finally able to take off their wetsuits to enjoy the rides in this third week of June. Although it took a while, the ocean has reached it’s peak thus far, reaching 69 degrees as many surfers were eager to go surfing sans wetsuits.  "Finally," said 27-year-old surfer, Todd Greenberg, "It’s much better without the suit adding that extra weight."

While the water warmed up, the surf seemed to coincide with last week’s pattern, which was favorable for longboarding early on. 

The whole season up to this point has predominantly been better for longboarding, as Greenberg said, adding, "The longboarders have taken over."

Although the waves won’t be much bigger next week, Saturday should bring in some shortboard waves that will change the tides a bit. 

Along with Saturday, Monday should also bring in some fun waves as well, while Wednesday will be decent in the morning after a Southwestern windchop at around 9:00 p.m.  

This week looks better than recent weeks for shortboarders, however longboards will also suffice while wetsuits will definitely not be  needed, as Greenberg added, "We can always longboard, the best part is now we don’t have to wear wetsuits."
