15 Mins......End of this year it'll be out the door and on the beach. Mostly just weekends during spring,summer and fall unless I get a rain day. I work Dark to dark....I dont work during the winter so I go every day there is surf.
I'm in NJ. It's like an hour to my normal break. If the winds are coming hard from the north I'll head to Ocean City which is like 1.5 hours. I work 3:00-11:30 so I can go on dawn patrolls every day (waves permitting). I normally catch every clean swell waist high or over, which is (give or take) about twice a week.
when im at school its a depressing 2 hour ride to my local break. during the summer its a 5 minute bike ride. during school this year for a majority of the fall/winter i was getting in the water at least once a week. now that im home i get in every day regardless of how crappy it is
