    frustrated but stoked

    I went out to assateague yesterday and was not able to get on a single wave after an hour and half! I've only been out two other times since september or october when it seemed like I was starting to progress and having a blast.

    Having said that I was stoked not only to be out again but also there were a couple guys out there, I didn't get a chance to say hello, that were really inspiring, cross stepping and making me want to keep it up.

    I"m dying to move closer to water and get more time out.

  2. What the reason why you couldn't get onto waves ... especially after an hour and a half .... seems ridiculous

    ...

    At least throw yourself over the ledge late on one and get worked...

    How long have you been surfing? What are you riding? If your just starting, i would not care as much about how im surfing but to the fact that i am out there.

    A few years since it started to click. Yesterday I was on a 9' pearson arrow twin fin, but usually ride a 9'4". the waves were breaking a lot hollower then I'm used to, i think because of the onshore 15mph wind, I guess and I don't think I was positioning right, too far out maybe. I want to be able to surf in more conditions then clean knee to waist mellow break. As I said being in the DC area getting out is not easy with the distance, work and family. Thanks for the encouragement.

    I'm not sure it has clicked....

    not to be discouraging but 2ft waves in 15mph onshore winds isn't exactly optimum surfing conditions. Even a good surfer would have trouble surfing in those conditions, that's why they don't paddle out in that crap. Keep an eye on the conditions and pick your sessions more wisely. With modern forecasting............ ya know.... that swellinfo place........ it's pretty easy. Pura Vida bro good luck
