    Croatan was solid? Not VB Croatan. VB doesn't translate well with long period swells, nor south components, and this was a classic example. Saturday had everything you want, offshore winds, clean...

    Anyone else feel wierd after yesterday's water? I surfed around 24th. I'm fine today but last night felt a sinus/congestion/fever thing from the water. Might have just been all the water trapped...

    Bring both tops. And a spring suit if you've got it. The VB humidity just started a week ago, so days have been pretty hot, but the water is still chilly. I'd be cold out there if we go back to...

    Bushwood, thanks for the info. I was already leaning that way before, but your post kinda reinforced that. I don't know anyone that has one personally, so yeah, they could be good boards. But the...

    Anyone know anything about Sovereign surfboards, a fairly new shaper in VB area? Ridden or own one of their designs? Their prices seem competitive, just wondering how well they'd compare to a well...

    Agree with Lee, the "groin" is too crowded already. Its not a groin at all, but it has built up a good amount of sand the last year plus. Same kind of structure that was at 42nd a few years ago. ...

    For example, 4ft @ 14 sec will be a bigger wave than 6ft @ 8 sec or even 7 ft @ 5 sec. And of course, have more...

    wallysurfr is correct here. Most christians would not consider themselves religious, but something way different and more than that. It is the world's view of "religion" that gives it a bad name. ...
