E WIND 20 TO 25 KT...BECOMING SE 15 KT THIS AFTERNOON.
WIND WAVES 4 FT...SUBSIDING TO 2 FT.
W SWELL 5 FT AT 14 SECONDS.

Remember what I said about Surf in Oregon?
Cold, Fickle and Sharky...
I surfed on October 30th...
It was pretty cold...
The next time I surfed was November 29th...
Because it was a pretty meager month wave wise...
Some might even call it fickle...
As for the sharky part...
This incident occured on Halloween...
See for yourself...trick or treat?

A shark specialist came who took measurements says the fish was about 18' long & about 5000 lbs. The surfer never heard a noise or saw anything!

Surf looks good today...supposed to build all week.
Surely out of control by next weekend with 20' surf.

it has been 'feeling' sharky recently. i don't know why. lots of wildlife, behaving strangely. but when its a glassy 6' what are you going to do?
