He did lose his board. I have no idea why he wouldn't have swam in when he lost it. He was stuck way outside kind of floating around. He was kind of close to a jetty so maybe afraid to swim in near it?
No other boarders offered some help? Since I'm not exactly sure what happened, I'm not trying to pass blame, but it seems kinda heartless to let some dude float around for two hours in the cold water risking hypothermia, and not offer some type of assistance if you're close by ... no set of waves is ever THAT good ...
Edit: Is this the story? ... Looks like he might have been surfing alone? From this video I don't see anyone else in the water with him.
Plenty of beat downs and close out barrells is what I saw. Oh yeah, freezing cold too. Guess that's epic in NJ though?
In re: the f'u'cast.....Solid call yesterday.
In VB: the f'u'cast was a complete miss today from CRO to North End; nearly ludicrous, in fact.
Go ahead .... shoot the messenger.
yankee, you're absolutely right haha. it was pretty fun except for the closeout sections. had to swim to the beach more than once to get my board. damn leash kept getting yanked off (no pun intended). today was damn near flat

We've had some good swells in our lifetimes but just about everyone that went out agreed, Friday was the best we've ever had it.

Also heard that guy who got picked up on the heli has to pay a fine of $5000 for getting picked up hah..I woulda just told them to drop me down a Gatorade and let me be
