I love empty lineups therefore I love the cold. It's one of the reasons I moved to Alaska. That and the fact that it's already snowing here and I'll be making my first turns of the season on new snow in the backcountry this weekend...Still waiting for the Swellinfo AK forecast page!
RJM.....I just had to move north last week. (Not by choice) I believe Im not that far from where you live. I will be driving alot just to get waves. If you're interested in catching a ride and some waves, send me a private message. And congrats on your new disovery, it only gets better.....
Haha man so many innuendos so little time. Well I've never surfed bigger than waist high. I'm not a really good swimmer so I avoid big days. I would much rather be sitting on the beach with my board picking up honies than drowning in big surf. No thanks.
I think there is a term for this type of thing...I believe it's a HODAD!! In addition to comment on some of the initial posts, I would rather suit up in a 5/4 during the winter months and score regularly than go through a month+ flat spell with a knee high day breaking it up like the summer months! Although, head high+ and warm water is just a gift from the surf gods and can't be denied.
