    Just moved from east to west coast. Grew up on the east coast (Long Island) chasing inconsistent, mostly sh***y swell, that's often short-lived when it even gets good. Out west it seems 80% of the...

    Just moved out here from the mid-Atlantic 6 months ago. Surf is relatively consistent and good. So long that you don't mind surfing in cold water year round. Coming from the east coast it's a dream....

    I moved east to west coast a few months ago. I have been caught in a rip or two before on the east coast, but the Mid Atlantic beaches I surfed are typically sandy and open the rip won't really take...

    I can surf or ski/snowboard most any day during the winter...surfing trumps most anything if the swell is good. Nothing like it. Snowboarding is very fun, but it's still not much like surfing nor as...

    Dude, I tried to reply to your PM's but your inbox is too full so they won't go through. Anyway, hope you were able to get something. It's been pretty big and blown out here the last few...

    Looking like you might get a break on Saturday as things shrink down and more importantly, clean up. Keep your eyes peeled. All the days surrounding it look like they're going to be big and...

    I just picked up a used 6'2" FW Dominator that has served me well out here. Even holds up on head high to 1' overhead really well. Short, but it has a good bit of volume. Really depends on the...

    Thanks man. Yeah, I'd definitely recommend a little extra board for bigger conditions. There are definitely some chest to head high days in the season that aren't as intense, but they are few and far...

    Just moved out to Astoria, OR a few months ago and I can tell you the surfing here is incredible. But be warned, winter time means some very big, serious waves. Well overhead on most days this time...

    About two or three foot overhead is about where I'm out of my comfort zone. And that usually means double overhead cleanup sets which can force you to paddle way out. At 9 or 10 ft hold downs start...

    I'm a UD alum. I believe the marine biology program is a graduate program only. You stay on site in Lewes, I think right on the beach. But I wouldn't recommend moving to DE for the surf right now...

    When I was young and in school I loved it. Warm weather and long days, and on the east coast you can typically trunk it come late June/early July. But as others said, at the expense of crowds and...

    Yeah. Leaning towards that. Plus there are still a lot of great ski-only mountains I wouldn't get to experience otherwise. I remember seeing Alta from Snowbird's mineral basin years ago and being a...

    Yeah, just moved here 2 months ago for a job near the coast. The winter surf is more often than not too big for my ability, but we get enough days here and there where it gets down to chest/head high...

    That's the other problem. It's been a very dry winter here. It's all like east coast conditions right now in the Pacific NW. Just groomed ice...wouldn't even consider touching backcountry right now.

    Yeah, but no shark attacks at least.
  17. Has surfing turned me off to snowboarding?

    In short: I'm a skier turned snowboarder, took up surfing shortly after snowboarding, had to give surfing up for a few years when I moved inland and only got back into it within the past few years of...

    Many years ago I traded a few grams of magical fungus to a friend for his used CI Flyer he was considering selling me. To this day I consider it one of the best deals I made in my life. Maybe they...

    I just moved to the west coast last month. After the session I had today, it's totally worth it...even though most of this is fear mongering BS. If I lived in Japan I'd be worried. Not here though.

    Oh yeah, absolutely. Cramps are typically caused by either electrolyte loss or fatigue. If you're in the cold you're shivering and burning a lot more energy just maintaining body heat. Eat well and...

    Started when I was 16, went nearly every day spring-late fall until I left for college.
    Off and on for the next 6 years, then moved inland and was off completely for another 6.

    Holy s*** yes! I definitely had a point somewhere between 10-13 years old where I had myself convinced of it. I don't think I even knew the term "solipism" until my 20's. Apparently it's a pretty...
