U guys have INSANE standards for waves. Complain when its flat....now its not flat and you complain about wind, tide, closeouts exc. Its beachbreaks and windswell. Take what you can get. U guys must not surf much or know where to check. Must be some really good surfers on here who wouldnt dare to paddle out on anything thats not epic.
Is there such thing as epic anyway? If its that big people complain about closeouts or dumping. Then if its say head high people say it was ok, weak, disorganised. I just dont know.
Ive had a blast this winter. Gotta go out, It is always more fun than crossing your arms on the beach and saying......"Ive seen better"
Different standards for winter and summer. If it was summer I would have been doing backflips over what I saw in town this morning. With all the rubber etc. the afternoon was better and a better balance of fun verses exhaustion. I will be the first to admit that I have no need for death defying airdrops into bottomless pits. I would rather a more mellow fun wave over a super intense wave anyday. I would not consider any wave I saw today overly intense just not much payoff for the effort until the afternoon.
Was pretty awesome at my spot spot. Head high sets coming in at 3pm glassy and offshore with a light spray with rainbows forming inside the spray, birds floating in the water, seagulls chirping, and the sun shining with nobody around. haha

yeah surf was good in the MD area today. Just maybe not in the OCMD area. Don't be a putz and check the right spots. I was out from 12-3 and it was really good even with the stiff wind and the receding tide. Everyone out was happy with the waves but a lot of frustration checking spots. Such is life.
uhh no offense but what do you need your shoulder for? Dont you kick with flippers into waves..
Think about it man. No paddling, no correct grip on the board, no aerials. Why would I stress it when it's a torn rotator cuff? I'll be fine for a while shooting photos from the beach. On that note, anyone wanna shoot? Lemme know where in OC I'll show up
