Ok, gettin a little confused here bud: " if i had the time and money i would go down to mex, CR, PR as often as possible, but living off less than 20g/yr and paying for my own school doesn't really make that possible" " work two jobs and go to grad school man,"
"- so don't act like people need to feel sorry for you"
nice...I rest my case.
Getting angry, not at all,I am just getting warmed up and find this humurous.Ya made a good point about skating/carving, as well as getting in the water more and paddling to improved the lats a bit.. However in response,Its a surf forum , I could care less really about what I express and thats what its for, ya don't like it, go to one that is little more nurturing for ya. Didn't realize I had to relinquish proper language to make you feel better. Might depend on which buoy you are referring to as well. Cmon now got use the noggin, you might want to consider sea floor landscape as well, how far the swell has traveled, the period (notice you mentioned that), moderate, ground, wind. Alot of elements in there and alot of it is determined by the sea floor bottom along these coast and where the swell is centered and directed towards. My kids? These generalizations are getting funny. Challenge you to all swells, are you kidding me, wtf is that?!? For the record the surf has been bad period for a while, doesn't take much at all to figure that one out. I am sure things will improve, I am looking forward to that and will embrace it very much so.
bfloyd - i'm glad you like to twist everything that's said...in response to your last post: not sure what you're confused about, but yeah, i barely make enough money to pay rent, bills, eat and have a little extra, so, sorry for not being as cultured as you by not affording trips the world over.
next, not sure what case it is you're resting.
your choice of words doesn't make me feel better or worse, it just reflects on you...but you don't seem to care: "...I could really care less about what I express..." - bfloyd
in response to your challenge statement, i will quote one of your previous posts:
"I challenge your dumbass to fess up to a large northerly in PR or a stong SW swell along mexico, central america or cali. Or what would measure up to a noreaster or hurricane swell on the east coast. Another thing, having to work for a living might take you by surprise, but having family and commitments in the area is hard to deterr abruptly. In which I am cooking up something good to land my ass on the west coast, you dumb ****." - bfloyd
so yes, i said, "...you can challenge me to all the swells you want.." in response.
you can misconstrue words all you like...and i don't need a lesson in the physics of waves, but thanks. why don't you check it out for yourself: http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=41110
these are both right next to each other less than five miles offshore, SE of WB ...plot is significant wave height for the last week, or as you obviously know, the AVERAGE of the highest 33% of the waves...therefore the biggest sets are higher than these values....averages can be deceiving at times.
obviously during the Fay stuff alot of it was windswell, but put that on top of 3 foot groundswell and you can have some decent-sized waves, and if you're patient enough to wait for one to line up in the chop, you can get rewarded...
right now most of the wave out there is groundswell, is diminishing in size and decreasing in period...it will be interesting to see how these next couple tropical systems play out in a few days...
if you guys want to bicker back and forth, please make it a private conversation.
