    Suprise swell...PUMPING in RI today!!

    Paddle out was brutal. I could barely make out it. Solid overhead beach breaks bombs coming in......and then I woke up from my daytime nap

    This flat spell is driving me crazy. A solid 7 days with no waves and still nothing on the horizon. This would make it 2 years in a row with no hurricane/tropical swell during memorial to labor day time period. We almost almost get at least one. This was actually a pretty good summer up until now. All we need is the last week of August to deliver and it will go down as a good summer. Hopefully that biatch Erin gets her act together and comes close enough to give us a bump. Waist high would be just fine by me.

    Oh and how many people didn't bother to check the surf and read the headline and though oh ****....I missed out today.

    In VA Bch at around noon today it was very choppy but chest high and rideable. When I saw the red flags out at Dam Neck (they must have had to dust them off) I thought it might be promising. Paddling out through the chop and white water was a workout at times. Out of shape from all those 0-1 days. I'm tired and sore now, but it's a good thing.

    I was huffin puffin like a fat boy running with lead shoes. It was good to get wet. had a weird petroleum/fecal stank to it. but I got wet. and belly whopped a few. stood up and sank and a few.

    ECSC starts Monday is why. 99% of those had no waves. the one time it was of professional height, the postponed because it was too big. they have had a few rideable days.

    Outer Banks has been really good this summer! I'm surprised at how many days we have had. These past 3-4 days have been ranging from 5-6ft with ofcourse wind chop but it has been fun! Hope you guys get some soon!

    This is why I have a skateboard, a motorcycle and too many snowboards...

    How was the snowboarding this weekend? If you found a hill with mud/loose gravel it would probably be better than the surfing conditions.

    I have zero interest in the other two so you're lucky you have something else
