    OK, I can see where you are coming from on the bodyboard point. Saturday morning looks promising at this point.

    None of this is unexpected. It's the same **** every year. Good until the middle of june....Dies.... then picks up last week of August with a hurricane swell.

    I'm simply frustrated because I love it when it's warm out and it's been like 100 friggin degrees out with 73 degree water and no waves! Ughh

    Yeah I'm not good at doing big manurvers or anything. I'm not jeff hubbard...yet! lol.....I just need some PUSH and speed and the excitement of taking the drop. Knee high mush barely even pushes the board. haha
    Just out of curiousity, anyone ever try like a 45 inch big kahuna board. Does that make a big difference on marginal weak waves compared to a regular 42 inch board?

    When I first started reading this thread I was thinking, " What, flat in Rhode Island? Isn't that place the most consistent state in the union?"

    Then as I continued onward, there it was - "It's waist-to-chest high" Then I said to myself, "Self, there ya go, Rhode Island comes through again. It just sticks out in the Atlantic and picks it all up."

    Now, I think some of you Rhode Island guys, now I said some, not all, might be a bit confused aboot things up there. Might be some novice "wave goggles" going on up there. Maybe....maybe not.

    Ha, just check SWELLINFO.COM's report for Atlantic City, NJ...........2-3' suckas. Yeah how do you like them apples? Man, we are getting the shred on down here. Wooo Hooo. OMG, it is so good out there. I talked to some guy this morrow and he was all, he was like, he went, " Man, those were the best 2-3' waves I have ever had."

    I was all, " Totally, bru." And then we hugged and had a good cry and went our separate ways.

    I will always wonder what happens to that fella. Godspeed good sir, and I hope you find even better 2-3' waves somewhere along your journey.

    This Summer has not been well above average. It's been exactly what an EC Summer is.

So it's interesting to me that we seem to be in the same general area and you have the opposite perspective. Doesn't really matter, just interesting.

    "At this point being" the operative word. That's another thing. We constantly have these marginal swells popping up on the forecast sites and the computers have a hard figuring out if it's actually going to hit. Sort of like today. So annoying trying to make plans around forecasts that flip flop like crazy are wrong a lot of the time. Even the night before. So much better in the fall/spring when the swell's are for sure.

    Yeah.

    Man, y'all got to start going with the flow and living in the moment. Stop getting all worked up aboot what it is going to be like five days from now, and anaylzing the summer when it's not even half over.

    If y'all are young, I understand, but take it from an addled wise man, and learn to just go with the flow. It will serve you well in all of life's journeys.

    Listen guys, you have seen televangelists, right? You know, confused southerners/mid-westerners send them their social security checks in hopes of getting their prayers answered.......

    Well, if you send me a $100 "wave donation" I will get you guys some surf. Allejululah. Praise my name. Hit me up and I'll tell you where to send your wave donation. For $200 I will meet you and smack you in the head so that you fall over. Then you will always have waves.......Allejululah. Praise my name.

    I have a 44'' DK shape, a tad thicker than the average sponge. My regular boards are in the 42 range, but I'm a stocky dude so I wanted to try it out. I will say this, had it out on a smaller day, and while not ideal for prone riding, the extra float makes catching smaller waves easier and maintains speed down the line, so short answer, yes.

    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.
