    If you live south of Stuart your not getting to much down there this winter, anything north of that has been decent, more than a few overhead days but mostly stomach to chest gems at dawn or in the evenings, i to am a big guy, and have been riding my fun board more than my short board, its all about the "Fun Factor'...

    Take it easy, didn't mean to offend you and your alternative lifestyle, i think it's wonderful what you "guys" are doing, soon you can be a boyscout if you keep it up!

    If you use the the rating system like the people in Florida, NJ is rated at an 8, just kidding. I would say it is a 5 if you include the December swells.

    I was just thinking about this thread yesterday... now that it's officially Spring. February and March shaped up nicely. Maybe even better than average. Outside of those sputtering three weeks in January where it never got over thigh/waist high, I'd say it ended up being pretty good after all. And Spring is starting off most excellently.

    Agreed. January was brutal but February and March have been pretty great. My 5/4 has barely had a chance to dry out and then im putting it on again. and the swells have been really good - not just a surf, but really good surf.

    Agree.. we were talking about this in the water yesterday while the waves were solid 4-5 foot with straight offshores for about the 10th day in the past six weeks. This winter was shaping up to be below average in Maryland but the last six weeks have put it in the "somewhat above average" category, and definatley better than the previous two winters.

    By the way, i agree that surfing winter is January - March. December is more fall to me. The water is about 43 right now and was still in the upper 40s in later December.

    Well, im glad you boys up in the mid-atlantic ended up having a decent season... Your friends down here in the SE certainly did not. I would say there were about 5-6 days the entire winter that were worth going out.... I still probably clocked 20 days total, but calling the conditions "surf" was a stretch... I think I was out at least 5 days in 5-7 second period wind swell that was about knee to waist high... ugh. This past Sunday was actually fun, but I think that was the first day of spring.

    I have been frothing seeing all the photos etc. of Maryland and Jersey this winter... Hilton Head Island has been making 48th street in OC look like pipeline in comparison.
