    What part? IOP had a decent morning on Saturday. We also had something a week ago. They weren't overhead, but 2-4 ft fun stuff.

    Yeah, Saturday didn't look very good, but I had a few good sets once I was out there for a while. I will agree that it would be nice to have more than one ok day per week. Even in late summer we were getting 3-4 days in a row of clean LB waves. However, winter tends to be less consistent.

    see, I have found the opposite down here on HHI. The actual swell forecasts are pretty legit, but the wind and conditions forecasts are always wrong... It calls for like 20MPH wind most days down here. So I will see a 2-3 foot swell at 8 seconds, which sucks, but when I get there in the morning, its sheet glass with light offshores... Still grovelling surf, but for the most part, down here the forecasts indicate it being worse than it actually is... Almost every time... Swell forecasts are pretty on... But not tide specific... a 3 foot day here at high tide turns into ankle slappers when the tide drops out... Is what it is... Gotta know your spots. Timing is everything.

    How has HHI been treating you Zach? Better or worse than expected surf wise? Growing up there really helped my wave reading ability as they are normally chopped/short and now surfing a bit better waves I feel like I appreciate it more coming from such **** waves.

    Its been good. I expected a little less than I have gotten. Being so busy all the time has helped cope with the lack of surf. But I have been good about jumping on it whenever there is a bump... Have only seen 3-4 HH days, and 1+ during Sandy, but otherwise, fun waist to chest high lines.... I miss getting speed on waves, but the common surf down here is quad/fish friendly for me, so I have brushed the dust of my fish and had to hang up the short boards for the most part.... Not bad though... Weather has been nice. Water temps around 59 right now... No complaints there. I surf alone pretty much all the time, which is weird, but good. I mean, unless its really solid (meaning chest high) I am pretty much the only guy in the ocean as far as the eyes can see. Get my choice of all waves.... Different, but a nice change of pace coming from San Diego... I miss the NW swells of the winter obviously, but no more death defying DOH-TOH days to get the blood pumping... Just enough to not go insane =)
