Did I use that right?
    Well said- better then i just did!

    If it makes you feel better, I'll acknowledge your a MA surfer, who could've been in Jersey.

    But your buddy's greenness in large surf was topped by a factor of two by a 19-year old woman who surfed for the very first time with her boyfriend in triple-overhead surf during Hurricane Fabian at Newport 2nd beach
    (at high-tide!).
    This was while Wes and Randy Lane tow-surfed 4x overhead surf at Satan's Ledge. The buoys were 10 @ 17s. Some of the swells were like 16 feet high while they were still 800 yards offshore.

    All right, so it was a little rough, and the waves were like head-high plus. You just need to stay away from the hazards.

    I haven't read your post yet, but I promise I'll get to it.

    All kidding aside, I'm wrong to joke about the ocean! It's good that you both survived intact, what was obviously a harrowing experience. Like the Noller said, "Don't mess with the water". A slip on even a 4-foot wave can wipe you off the map.

    Seriously. Any other new england surfers seen the guy who's always out at Gansett area breaks who packs some serious extra poundage but still just rips? You'd know the guy if you'd seen him. It's so depressing watching someone his size out-paddle me and just generally out-surf me, but some consolation when I sit back and marvel at the sheer miracle of physics..

    You talking about the bald guy? If you are, I surfed around him at PJ last Sept. He's a trip and was definitely charging the bombs all the way up the point.

    Not the guy I'm thinking of, though I'm glad to hear RI is so stocked with the heavies!

    Clearly, I type slowly.

    It's straight unfathomable watching him paddle for a wave. The laws of inertia just seem to not apply.
