Sir, I do not wish to get in a BRO-down with you. Your bro skills far exceed mine sir. I was actually hoping sir we could carpool to the Grover Cleveland rest area together and share a bag of funions sir. But I guess now sir, those hopes and dreams of being able to learn how to be a gnar gnar super dooper shredder bro are out the window.
Just paddle out, it'll be great, you'll be in the water. Since it is the Atlantic and not the Gulf, there will be a swell. Depending upon what size board you ride, I predict that it will rideable. I recommend a twelve footer (I saw some dude sporting a 12' Skip Frye last week, it was awesome, thing must have cost almost 2Gs). This should work on any wave size up to 50'. Reference Greg Noll if not sure. Although, since it is the North East Atlantic, my predicitions are that it will be cold. If you are a Californian or from Hawaii, it will darn cold, wear a wet suit. If you are from Alaska, it will be hot, darn hot, surf naked. There is also a web site with as accurate data as one can predict about such an anomalous environment as the ocean. You might have heard of it, it can be found here: http://www.swellinfo.com
Kinda like everyone that surfs the eastcoast should be between O inlet and the lighthouse tomorrow early morning. Some places along those miles of coast line will be pic perfect you should paddle oput with your 7'1 soft top holds good in overhead surf!!!
it looks like your best bet is going to be friday at 1152 am the wind will be outta the south-north-west at 7.23457865564 mph unless there's a blue moon with a ebbing tide and the cowboys win the super bowl
