What the frack. Ideal tide. Ideal swell. Ideal wind direction at 6mph. 2.5ft at 9s says the buoys. Yet nary a bump to even get a takeoff on with an 88ft tree from NZ with 1623L of float. I'm either booking another flight to SoCal for 2-3 wks from now (if I can stand waiting) or I'm going to Oak Bluffs and renting MV's WaveJet by the hour til I lose my shirt.
I did what PB&J said to do. Every day I go to the breaks to see. Apparently, 3ft of swell for several days supplemented by 9-11s (which is LONG for us) is not ample juice to stir the drink. It would be one thing if the reports didn't all say 2-4ft for days. I can handle the truth. But don't BS me SI, MSW, Solspot, Surf-forecast, Windguru, et al. Even Surfline has been full of schitt lately and they lowball the tits off Pamela Anderson in her prime.
You guys remember not too long ago when Spicoli's stoke was firing daily like a Chilean barrell factory. That stoke stands for everything that's right with charging anything in sight. Key word: sight. Tough to charge waves when you can't see them. And I'm not talking about night waves because you can see the shadows of those and if you're familiar with the break you know where to place yourself for takeoff.
I'm not gonna get a log. I'm not gonna get a SUP. I've got a quiver full of fine SB sticks that are quite appropriate for NE surf. I've persevered to the point where you give me a shin-high wave and I'll get a takeoff on it with my latest pickup, the 5'6 batwing tail 34L five box beauty. Knee-high? I'm nailing a ride on a 5'11 HP. But when I get toenail-high swell, I can't do a damn thing with that.
So should I aspire to be the best Carver boarder I can be? Because it's been 4.5 months since there was more than a shadow of local swell. I can't even find a wave to charge down in Rhodey right now. Maine? Maybe by the time they open the ferry to NS next spring. We've got Koki's score report of 55+ waves across a 5 hour sesh. I believe that man and am truly happy for him. However, WHERE'S THE BEEF IN NE?!?! Anyone who's had more than 3 "good" days since June at their local spot has no voice here when it comes to ranting.
This Groundhog Day of an existence is caging me and you know I can't be caged. Bringing wahine out for a lesson last weekend in the 1.5ft then consummating the sesh after bought me a couple days of stoke. But here we are on Wednesday and the reports have been money for days yet not a fart from Poseidon to be seen here in Emass. By all means, keep reporting scores if you get em and I'll celebrate them with you since it keeps the faith that worldwide flatness is not a possibility. But for real brahs, if you have scored even semi-regularly at your area breaks the last couple months, not a single breath of angst may emanate from your mouthpieces.

Two days of clean chest high swells next week! Stoked bro
It will probably drop and be another disappointment. I hope I am wrong though
