“I was out on Thursday and the water stank from the plankton bloom and there were trees everywhere (likely from hurricane Katrina). Short board guys had some good waves as they could get out past the incessant shore break, but those of us on long boards couldn't paddle out far enough - the wave period was just too short.”
