Is it sad that the past two nights I have had dreams where I see a huge 10 ft. green man pop up out of nowhere later in the week? Both times I made sure to check swellinfo, magicseaweed, and surfline to see if it was TRUE!
My buddy leaves for Europe next week... We'll get swell then...

Block your airway with the back of your tongue. It's like when you hold your breath and bear down in order to get rid of a turtle head during a post-thanksgiving dinner sh!t

you guys arguing over scale is so maddening to me. there's no hawaiian scale or back of the wave vs. the face debate. there is swell size and period. that's it. yes a 3-4 foot, fifteen second swell is overhead once it magnifies in shallow water which sounds counterintuitive but that's the vernacular science and watermen have agreed to use. wave faces vary as the bottom conditions change so the most consistent measure is swell size and period. period.
learn to talk about waves like you know what you're talking about because all this "20 foot east coast bombs" talk makes us all look like kooks. read the buoy and know the bottom conditions of your spots. also, too, stop talking about surfing so much and just surf and if you want to surf big waves, book a trip. you will never surf an 18 second period swell on the east coast and yes, it makes a big difference.

I also highly recommend burning a fattie ( save half for when you get out) to give you the mental clarity and relaxed state of mind to commune with the ocean when she becomes unruly. Just ragdoll on those hold downs, and look for columns of clear water to swim back up instead of fighting the foam.[/QUOTE]
Some of you guys just make me so happy! On second thought SISurfdog, bring two fatties. Then you can share with me before and after.. But don't worry, I usually always have the goods too. If your not getting high before you hit the water, your not doing it right. Sucks when I cant get high before dawn patrols because I gotta work. Didn't used to be my rule, but I have a job I cannot nap at now. Hit me up if you wanna buy a new limophoto (23).jpg
