I gotta say, Summer has been really fun this year. Had another really fun day yesterday after a great run of swell the week before. Every year we get the same ole "Summer Sucks" threads, so I thought I'd throw Summer a bone this time. Anybody get some fun ones this past weekend?

Summer has been SWELL
I don't know what Bayhead or Deal was like, but this past weekend was ok. 2-3' +. My spot, or should I say, the spot I surf at, has a dumpy, inside sandbar working so it keeps minor swells interesting. It was almost there, but just missing something.
Yeah the other week you SE people had an unusual low spinning of youse guys coast. Ain't nature wonderful. You win some ......you lose some, and you never know what's going to happen. That's one of the reasons surfing is better than climbing rocks. Ya know what it is that I be sayin' ?
Hey SUP, when did you start surfing? Your stoke is strong. That's agood thing so don't think I'm being cocky when I ax you when you started surfing. I'm just curious George(EmassSpicoli's favorite books. He's written ten dissertations on the series.)
Man, anybody up here who has a memory or knows what's up............the summer of 2010 was possibly the greatest summer in my lifetime(up this way at least). The sandbars at "the spot of which I surf" were all-time and the swell poured in relatively non-stop all summer. At least 3 days per week of waist + bubs. The town in which I surf, had it's busiest lifegaurding season ever. So there's some data to back up my theory.
Yeah summer's been ok this year. Better than average I reckon. It can barely get over knee high during the whole month of July during bad years. It can be like that part of June and August too. So..............ya know. Could be worse......could be better. But ain't that always the case.
SPEAKING OF SUMMER: We are kind of at the half-way mark. 1 1/2 months down........1 1/2 to go. Jeez, time flies when you get old. Jeez, in no time we'll be sittin in 5 mils off deserted beaches talking to seals. Stay young kids.....stay young.

Didn't get to surf all weekend due to work; but got to go out on a nice dawn patrol this morning and just came back as the beaches filled up with surf camps. Great longboard day and it's been hit and miss; but since I got my log it seems I get more hits than not.
2010 was a great summer.... thats the same year we had the hurricane off the coast that just churned out waves with little to no rain/wind on shore.

Had a nice surprise saturday morning, nothing to write home about, but better than forecast and managed to put some long rides together. And the water was just beautiful, so nice to trunk it.

What's up DP? I'm glad to hear that you're getting some fun waves down there. We've been at the mercy of some breezy south winds for the better part of the summer. We had sheet glass, chest high peelers on Friday afternoon, which was nice for a change. I got so pitted.
The crowd is starting to thin out a bit. I only hit one person on the way to work this morning, instead of the usual three or four.
And then you have this guy...

vb has been left out of any of this fun surf you speak of. Have not ridden anything over knee high in weeks.
Anywayswho, I religiously watch the newscast every Sunday night. I like to see what you North Jersey/New York people are up to. And they showed some beach scenes from yesterday and it looked pretty fun, man. Sh!t, even that Rockaway place looked fun. Good for you NY/NNJ people. Good for youse.

If you enjoy waist high at best wind swells i guess. Between the crowds and gutless waves, it's harder and harder to paddle out each summer. Only a month and half to go.........
