    Err on the side of caution

    A word to the wise for all, especially those inexperienced with storm surf: It's called storm surf for a reason, and it IS dangerous. There's really no way you can fully predict the resulting rips and littoral currents that you will be powerless to overcome or even successfully navigate. Err on the side of caution, if for no other reason than the fact that you'll live to catch many more waves in the future.

    Many with considerable experience have encountered very life threatening conditions and thankfully have survived to tell about it. Many others, like Eddie Aikau and Mark Foo, have not. Just because you love the ocean doesn't mean it loves you back.

    Be smart, and above all else, be safe.

    I never said anything about head high. sound like a bunch of whiney little pusses "oh stormy surf is scary, ooo its too big, ooh its dangerous" Why u out there then.
    SpongeOC's right: must be a bodyboarders thing. easier to punch through shorebreak w/more manuverable board and fins. Stand-ups must sink real fast.

    Hey what about hurricane surf? thats about as heavy as it gets around deez parts and I definitely make it an extra special effort to get down and out there. Wether I gotta take off work, skip work (not good to do, they dont like that) or cancel something.
    Why stand on the beach and stare when you CAN show what you can do, if you got da marbles
