you all need a different hobby. If the waves are ankle high theres no point going out. I know Jamie obrien fishes when pipes not going off
Damn Gary don't be a Gloomy Gus.
Six days. Never will do that again. old Shoulders squeak without getting 24 hours rest.
I don't know how you east coast guys do it. It was TERRIBLE here from early August until October and I still paddled out once a week just so I didn't become an angry person. If I don't get a minimum of 3 surf days per week I freak out
420 days consecutively
I got 50 days in this year, not consecutive but it was the most I ever surfed in my life. And was set as a goal since I turned 50 this year. Mother ocean almost kept me from reaching it. An hour away from the beach, with wife, my own company and 2 very over achieving, sports and clubs kids. I did get some of the best swells and sessions I've ever had.
Over the past year, I averaged 3x/wk (157 days); but since X-mas, it's been 1x/week.
Most days in a row: 5. The Navy base where I work is right on the beach, so I've squeezed in 3 sessions on a few days last summer-early fall.
But if it starts becoming a chore to go out, maybe it's time to back off a bit and do something different for awhile. Variety never hurts. Or, if you're married, take care of those long outstanding honey-do's at home. Frosty's kitchen cabinets in Chasing Mavericks come to mind.
