What else do you guys do when there's no surf? I spearfish, kite, and paddle which keeps me busy and having fun in any conditions. I found this site on the same sort of topic with some sick videos! http://worldwatermen.ning.com/
I fish a lot. Love being around the water in general. I currently live 5 minutes from the ocean, but in an area without swell. I travel about 35 minutes when there's waves foretasted. When its flat and high tide I fish for stripers/blues and tautog (sp?) from land, or go out with my pops on a 20' center console chasing schoolies/birds in the evenings after work. Just scooped up a Penn Slammer 460 reel and plan on throwing plugs withing a few weeks from now, I am pretty pumped spring is finally here.
Kayak and surf fish. Seems when I'm paddling around in ankle high junk, just to be in the water, fish are literally jumping over my board; I go grab a pole, and suddenly a series of nice (relatively speaking) sets start rolling in.
