    i may not exactly follow what you are asking.
    But, I think you mean that many surfers say they only like it when it's chest high or bigger...
    Well, I try to surf anything anytime anywhere - even small waves can be fun. I have never turned down a session of waist high waves.




    LMFAO - what does this mean?

    at least chest???...wow. In the winter..... I'll admit I won't suit up unless it's at least waist. Hate if you want. At least I am not claiming chest. In the summer or on a surf trip anything goes as I'm just trying to get wet. But, I don't see the point of suiting up for anything less then waist in the winter.

    I know a few old dudes that only surf 3 or 4 times a year, when its really good (chest-head+ and glassy). Usually see 'em out in sept / oct if ever. I dont have the discipline. Im like a crack head plotting on his next rock. "well, its only a little onshore.." "looks decent..." "its not THAT cold..."

    It's just you. The first few years I went out I would charge any swell all year long. Now that I'm better I just don't have any desire to go out in the cold and charge some garbage conditions. I'll go out in waist high and clean any day, but waist or chest high and onshore? You can have that all to yourself brohdie.

    I used to say the same thing though. I used to think I was hardcore because I charged any and every thing. Now I realize I was just an arrogant young man. To each his own though.

    my 10 cents...

    "if it aint setting the car alarms off, i aint going out..."

    "honestly," when you get older you will realize that what you once thought was your priority (surfing small waves) changes. i would rather run, or cycle, or swim, or paddle, or play with my dog then grovel in crap surf. It's not the size that good surfers are looking for either.

    Swell direction + winds + tides + sandbars + weather + moons etc. These are what I look into rather then the size.

    If your from Delmarva you will know what I mean when I say "I aint surfing waist High North Side." But waist High at another beach down the road can be killer. some sandbars in oc can "pull and draw" energy into longer lines. again, not the size that attracts me or not but it's "how the wave is breaking."

    this can only come from years and years of surfing and travels. after a good surf trip it is hard to throw your self back into freezing-cold-water that is breaking fickle and waist high.

    I think it kind of depends on your situation

    If your in my boat and only work at night, have the whole day to yourself why not paddle out.
    not **** else to do anyway.

    idk maybe im just super young and arrogant
