    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.

    Isn't it a good time of the year the hunt sharks? What are you complaining about?

    This was the first year I surfed regularly in the winter. Changed my perspective on s***. Summer sucks, but with respect to the colder months it's a short time to endure. Get a 6/5 and see the light!

    Dude, I just had 5 straight days of really fun waves here on the EAST coast just this past week, sorry you weren't there... For F sakes, why do people insist on complaining about flat spells in summer? Stop the b*tching.

    Then move...please. You're the same guy that couldn't handle winter because it's too cold, right? Move and stop complaining.

    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 ****
