    The start of meteorological summer

    And with that comes the brutal flatness. Like clockwork. Warm weather and no waves. The same cruel joke played every year on east coast wave riders.
    (I consider anything less than waist high on sets to be flat)
    It will probably be the last week of August before we see a chest high wave again, unless we get really lucky.

    Why on earth would you consider anything less than waist high to be flat? This aint Hawaii. Like the guy said, knee-thigh can be fun on a longboard, and plenty of other small wave boards. Flat is when you cant surf because there arent any waves. Thigh high is when u grab the log, fish, mini-simmons or other plank and go surf!

    hmmmm....maybe because I bodyboard. lol
    It doesn't have to be consistently waist high, but I want a waist high wave every now and then to really make it fun for me. Knee high weak windswell is a waste of time. It will barely even push a bodyboard and sometime not at all depending on the break Thigh high with occasional waist can be good.
    Ok so let me change it to upper thigh and I won't call that flat.
    Oh and I'm not someone who underestimates wave height. If the waves are waist high when a surfer is at the bottom of his turn, then I call it waist high. Surfers tend to undercall wave height.

    Epilogue: B34-36 could possibly be the best rack specs in existence. I've got years of study to back this, but arrived at this quite early in my research.

    Nah man
    While a 34B is very nice and well rounded
    The 34C has plenty of surface area for maximum motorboat-azation. Still big enough to get your attention and bury your face in but small enough to know they aren't gonna sag too bad before the chic hits 60

    Well said. While the C-group was my snack tray set of choice during my high school years, my illustrious collegiate career brought me the epiphany of the B-group as paramount to mammarial enjoyment and function. In my studies, a female subject not experiencing the "sag effect" by the time it reaches drinking age is a fortuitous exception for the males in its environment. After the point of descension, the appearance of buoyancy can only be seen when the subject is in the supine position on its back. You, my friend, are apparently in the company of supra-physiological super cougars if they remain shelf-like in the standing position even decades before reaching what has been popularized as "the change".

    Alas, the data collection of this natural phenomenon will forever be a favorite pastime of the feral male scientist.
