    It's flat and I can't take it anymore

    So much for the waist high swell we were supposed to get. It's basically flat on east facers and on south facers it's occasional knee high sets with onshore winds. It's been brutally hot and the best outdoor activity is the beach. Of course there are no waves. The east coast sucks in summer. July is brutal. I get reminded of it every year. Hoping we get a few descent days before summer is over. Because then it's only 2 months left(sept/oct) before it starts getting too cold out.

    Oh another example of a buoy not telling what's actually going on. It 5.6 feet at 8 seconds on the Block island buoy and it's mostly flat. The swell is falling apart before it hits shore. Block island is probably going off I bet though.

    Ha!

    It really has been decent lately for this time of year though. Get a small wave board or a new hobby.

    True, but the water around here has been a little too wet. Like it gets in my hair and ****

    Not sure where you are, but there were waist-chest high sets at first light this morning in RI. Onshore winds, but not too bad. There has barely been a day this summer that wasn't at least longboard-able. Get a longboard if you don't already have one. It will turn knee high days into fun days.

    A longboard eh? Never head of those.

    I love the way the same responses come up like I know absolutely nothing and assumptions about what I ride are made. I should just write the reponses since their so predictable. lol

    Chest high sets? suuure. What magical land was this?

    Great. I weighed the options of heading to RI based on a fair report and sticking around in MA/NH. Chose the second and a duck couldn't surf on what is out there today. Glad you got some though.

    You missed nothing down here. Rier was surfing chest high sets with njshredmachine.

    I know where you were and Are man...It's where everyone and anyone who knows what's up has been Especially right before/during and after incoming tide. I wasn't out this morning, sidelined being sick, but on REALLY good authority couple hours ago from a couple of brothers who Don't exaggerate- That was the report. Even at low tide.
    Good for you.
