    To each his own. All I know is that I'm surfed out this week, and I'm about to reward myself with a couple of bottles of beer before I crash tonight

    Not epic all time east coast but def. Some size and lines, alot of closeouts but plenty of sections to be had and barrels, at least in the obx, even though majority of spots weren't working great.

    it is spot dependent. Local winds have been an issues during this swell here in OCMD. We have had bright moments and clean conditions by not like all day everyday But we have had waves and plenty of them. some decent size, and not so closed out after the Weds. EVeryone seems to be happy, other then Thurs AM rain storm/lighting. In some ways it has been a litttle wonky, so much sand churned up, rips all other the place, etc.

In my opinion the worse surfer you are the better your gonna think this surf is cause it has some size and some power. But overall this surf is very poor for any good surfer.
    I've heard some places have been fun like OBX, where it can hold the size but for the most part this swell was a big dissapointment.
    there was some fun ones in CB this week, but i'd agree that the event did not fulfill the anticipation here in SE NC. first thing in the am was the best bet all week, but even then, that SSW wind took a lot of the fun out of it. all things considered, I had way more fun on Saturday 8/25 than anything i saw this week. but hey, i surfed every day so things could always be worse.

    i'm up in AC NJ now, hoping for better tomorrow and Sunday and the forecast for next week looks sweet up here.

    Good one.

    Those are likely SOME (not all) of the so-called 'Senior Members' (aka membranes) that post the negative drivel on this forum.

    Meaning, it's Nature. Some spots will be firing & some will not be firing. It's not a ball field, where you walk onto it & the place is manicured. It's the ocean & sometimes it's good for surfing & sometimes it's not. It is what it is. If people want to ***** about it, they should call their GF or their therapist.

    It is what it is.

    Southern NC has been a real disappointment. Surfed just straight the past 2 days. went to CB and it wasn't closing out as much but nothing to write home about. Wishing I was back home in Jersey. My friend txted me yesterday stating "I have never seen such good waves for so long in my entire life on the east coast". fack. I surfed tonight, waist-stomach high fun peak off a jetty, little wedge, but I fricken bought a new performance board looking to be pulling in.

    On another note, who saw the live broadcast of OBX today? Gnarley. should've went north, ey?
