The waves have not been very good lately... I'll admit it. It's been windy, foggy, and there hasn't been much swell. But, bad waves equal no crowds! It is a great time to get out there to practice elements of surfing with few people around. Try practicing your pop-ups on the beach, balance your body as you paddle the board, and extending your arms as you paddle. Go on, get down to Pacifica, pull your wetsuit on, wax up, and get in the water!
