About forgetting what the drop feels like, I think it's not so much of going weeks without any substantial swell and more having got used to chasing faux peaks that have no drop day after day for hours. Love the drop! Best part!

During the flattest days of summer here in S. Fla, we used to jump off bridges just to reaquaint ourselves with the feeling of the drop. Lost a couple of buds over the years. Flat spells will drive you to extremes. Glad ya'll caught some.

Yeah, I agree that there are certain people you see on here that pop up quite a bit or more often than others, but those are the people who keep this forum interesting (correct word to use there? LOL). Whether they are just spouting off about nothing or adding value. IMO Emass adds texture, so post on. People may not like his opinions, age, posts, etc, so when you get to his post, skip over. Anyway, does anyone know if there will be waves tomorrow? LMAO

Love his posts or hate his posts, you have to admit he's doing something right to be making surfing (and posting on surf forums) his full time job. I just wonder how long it will take before moves to California and changes his name to SoCalSpicoli. I'll put the over/under at 2 years...

Emass is alright, he brings his own flavor to the forum. He's probably just having a laugh most of the time and possibly has one too many Redbulls or just really likes "uppers" which probably explains the high energy, or possibly it's an ADHD thing, who knows... I suggest using the "shopping cart method" with not only Emass but with everybody, read and retain the things you care to pay attention to and everything else just skip over and let it ride.
Someone somewhere is getting a laugh right along with him, so who are we to deny them this happiness? Emass is actually a normal dude I'm betting, probably trolling us all from the get go, I mean, who really believes he was a newbie out in 6-8, or 8-10 foot swell and on top of that brought another newbie out with him and had a death defying escape off the jetty? Let's evaluate the length of time it took us all to be able to paddle into such conditions, and to deal with that type of water moving around.
Knowing that, I think we can all assume he's either (A) A seasoned vet pretending to be a newbie / 33yr old Grom and is trolling everybody for fun or (B) Really is a 33yr old Grom / Kook and just wants so badly to be what option A is.
Either way, I say Emass is ok
