I've been hitting the waves near Fernandina Beach, north of Jacksonville for a few months now, trying to learn how to sponge. Hold your giggles stick riders. My biggest problem I'm having is getting any kind of consistent rides. Today, I was out and caught a nice shoulder on a chest high wave and was actually trimming for a decent bit. I have caught many waves, but never as good as this one and never on a consistent basis. How does one learn this sport if you're either riding the whitewater into shore or getting pounded by head-high-washing machine-type conditions? I can't go out every day as I live an hour from the breaks, so I have to make due with whatever conditions I get once or twice a week. Please help.
