    Waves were showing a good ground swell effect it felt as they were more solid and perfect speed for longboarding and a few guys were out on the shorties doing good. Wish I went short today myself.

    Temp - Huge difference today than Wednesday. Didn't rock a suit; but that initial shock had my boys hiding for cover if you know what I mean...
    You get to take your boy's ? My wife keeps em on the shelf ,in a jar.

    Dude, no one on here can predict water temperatures. Shoot half the reports you get aboot the current water temperature from local surf shops and the news stations are wrong many times. You just gotta kind of know. Upwelling doesn't happen everytime the wind blows south.

    When you see a given water temp, give it a 3-5 degree range of innaccuarcy in either direction.

    And concrete surf knowledge is gained from experience not axing people on the interent. I'm not being a wise-ass, either. Learning on your own is a quater of the fun. Plus, you feel better about yourself and Demi Levato when you learn lessons on your own and accomplish things without axing some dude on an internet, who might not even know of what he speaks. Like me.

    And these days, don't ax surf questions on here. We're tired off surf questions, especially wetsuit questions. Nowadays we want to hear aboot your personal problems. The more intimate and private the better.

    Are you considering coming out-of-the-closet to your parents? Did you accidentally kill someone and the guilt is driving you nuts? Getting bullied by the cool kids at school? Well, whatever problem you have there are people who care, right here on Swellinfo.com. They are more than willing to give you their opinions on how to handle any crises you may encounter. Good luck and stay warm out there, man.

    if we "axe" people on the internet, won't they lock us up and throw away the key?

    Excrement and the bowel evacuation process, with or without wetsuit, is also often discussed (disgust).

    Surfed over the weekend at Chinco. Definately felt the water temp drop a bit. Always come prepared. I trunked it, then moved to spring suit and then went for the 3/2 along with the other better surfers out there. Couldve probably lived without but having warm muscles and extended sessions is always a preference. Remember a few years back when the air was around 105. the water dropped below 60 due to convection. REally wished I had my neoprene. Lesson learned. always carry one.

    Like PB&J said, personal problems, and the more intimate the better.

    Nice play on words. I see what you did there.
