    Unhappy Where the waves at?

    wtf? Flatness is killer right now. We had that wednesday back in mid sept (2 weeks ago), been flat since with flatness in the foreseeable future. UGH.....

    right spot, right board, right little window of opportunity. I surfed some nice little knee to thigh high waves yesterday on my log. Got a few that really surprised me. Welcome to the east coast, now lower your standards and buy some plane tickets.

    DP/low tide tomorrow looks promising.

    There has been a bump lately, but it's all crapped up by the time I get out of work.
    Been fishing a bit though, and doing well. Lots of blues, and even some Albies. No bass yet for me, but others have been more lucky.

    Knee high "bump" isn't waves..sorry. Most places around the world call anything less than waist high more or less flat. Here you'll get 25 guys out for an ankle-knee high day. Pathetic.
    October is usually a good month for NJ. Keep your fingers crossed for waves.

    around here, the smaller it is, the more crowded it gets (sucks having your break in view of a freeway)

    I don't own a longboard either. If it's only knee high, I'd just be standing/no turns, running back and forth, which doesn't appeal to me and if any bigger, turning on longboards looks stiff and ugly, imo...plus, I'd be on my shorty in waist high.

    well good luck with that attitude.

    Seriously people, if you live on the east coast and dont own a longboard than your missing many days of surf, even if its waist to shoulder high. I usually bring three boards with me up the street (yes 5 blocks mofos) and use whichever one the waves call for i use. If your a well traveled surfer, chances are your going to use a log most of the year on the jersey/ny coast unless you have very strong winter or hurricane surf battering the shore. Unless you keep beliveing that someday youll be kelly slater or cracking the minors aka ESA, your ass will be sitting on the beach while most of the real surfers soak up some stoke. life is short, stay on the sand so i can get some.
