Our second swell of the winter season hit with a little more shape. The first swell which came early November was mainly all closed out waves. This one had more corners although it was far from “great”.
Surfers include: Matt Pagan, Noah Collins, Cody Purcell and others.

Chasing El Nino Episode 3

This is Civic Couch’s third episode in our series “chasing el nino” presented by Manhattan Beach Toyota and the Easy Reader. It was filmed during the last half of January, 2016 by Civic Couch. This winter has seen some excellent surf, and this episode is packed with local talent showcasing their skills.
In Chasing El Nino, we document what the El Nino winter means for surfers, our beaches and surrounding areas. At the end of the surf season we will be combining the best clips for a full length movie.

Surfers include: Tyler Hatzikian, Mitch Crews, Matt Pagan, Dane Zaun, Bruna Schmitz, Tracey Meistrell, Lelia Hurst, Noah Collins, Kyle Brown,Tom Seth, Wil Reid, Chris Wells, Jamie Meistrell, Jani Lange and others

It’s not often that we get ideal conditions to surf in the late afternoon here in the South Bay.  The wind always seems to start blowing around noon and chop the ocean out in the afternoon.  Mid February brought us the Santa Ana winds that help keep the ocean calm, and the incredible sunsets helped make the sessions special.  By mid afternoon on February 11th I could tell that the Santa Ana’s would cooperate so I started making calls to see who would be available for a late afternoon session.  Matt Pagan and Noah Collins were in and as luck would have it, Ty Cukr and Paul Fisher were in town too.  The photos below are all from that session on February 11th at El Porto in Manhattan Beach.

There have been a few good days of surf so far in the 2014-2015 surfing season here in Los Angeles.  This particular day, December 14th 2014, peaked up a long interval northwest swell that brought not only good size, but good shape too.  Tyler Hatzikian, Noah Collins, Dane Zaun, John Gilmore, Ted Robinson, Chris Frohoff and others were in the right place for the swell.
