    Was he scared to come in because of the booming surf? Did offshore attempt to take him to Europe? Seems odd.
    Was he out there waiting for help for two hours ? I thought they said he lost his board. That would seem to be impossible with that water temperature.

    He did lose his board. I have no idea why he wouldn't have swam in when he lost it. He was stuck way outside kind of floating around. He was kind of close to a jetty so maybe afraid to swim in near it?

    No other boarders offered some help? Since I'm not exactly sure what happened, I'm not trying to pass blame, but it seems kinda heartless to let some dude float around for two hours in the cold water risking hypothermia, and not offer some type of assistance if you're close by ... no set of waves is ever THAT good ...

    Edit: Is this the story? ... Looks like he might have been surfing alone? From this video I don't see anyone else in the water with him.

    Plenty of beat downs and close out barrells is what I saw. Oh yeah, freezing cold too. Guess that's epic in NJ though?

    In re: the f'u'cast.....Solid call yesterday.

    In VB: the f'u'cast was a complete miss today from CRO to North End; nearly ludicrous, in fact.

    Go ahead .... shoot the messenger.

    yankee, you're absolutely right haha. it was pretty fun except for the closeout sections. had to swim to the beach more than once to get my board. damn leash kept getting yanked off (no pun intended). today was damn near flat

    Manasquan mighta been a little better, just picture the same wave without all the foam and spooky whitewater.

    We've had some good swells in our lifetimes but just about everyone that went out agreed, Friday was the best we've ever had it.

    Thursday's lookin like round 2..maybe even bigger
