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

    Good point, however, it must be noted that while NJshred's scale of wave height is 2.5x that of mine foot for foot, mine is 2.5x that of the mainstream community.

    Got to say that I'm pretty close to linking 10 Slip & Slides together and placing them on a rideable decline of land. I did what PB&J says to do by going down to the beach and seeing the "report" for myself and all I saw was still water.

I'm not talking ankle slappers either, i'm talking chest to head some days, waist to chest others, and a few knee to thigh's sprinkled in. Point is, every day I have had available to surf, there were waves., and I surfed. You should try it...
    Yes I understand that central FL rarely goes below waist high but Anywhere north of long island is like a pond right now.

    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.

    I don't take pics/videos but DID just return fron this exact spot and paddled out. Waist high...closing out, but the smaller ones were connecting inside. Got reports of people late afternoon further up along the same strip and RIGHT NOW at a very popular point getting it. Nothing Spectacular, but super fun.
    And of course it's not ALL tides, but on incoming tide, this beachbreak as long as there is a small bump in the water gets fun as hell for a bit. Has been almost every day.
    Stop asking for relying/on pics/vids to prove everything. Talk with people tonight and tomorrow provided you've Made any friends with your attitude and ask them where they surfed last night yesterday morning. Enough people were out you're Bound toget an answer.
    Good luck.

    Man,that waist to chest high stuff sure has been missing VB.
    For awhile now it's been 0-1ft with an occasional 2 ft. Can't do nuthin' about that. Just live and make the best of it. Use a longer board. Check different spots in the area - even along the same beach. Go at different times. Here, around low tide seems to be best with the weak swells/small waves we've been experiencing. As has been suggested, talk with others. Perhaps they've had better luck at spots you haven't yet checked or during times you haven't been out.
    Or just go out and paddle for exercise.

    You're complaining about it being flat but you don't like surfing in the winter? Maybe you wouldn't be so disappointed if you looked forward to the winter like the rest of us. Summer is always flat.
