Just got back from a little mid afternoon session here on long island. It wasn't anything too spectacular but the bigger sets were in the waist high range and not to many people in the water. I had allot of fun. Iv been getting out pretty often for barley rideable crap so it was just real nice to get out there and have some fun on a more substantial wave. I don't post on here often but I figured with all the negativity surrounding the "flat spell" and some other topics on here some positivity was in order. So did anyone else get out there and have some fun today?

Yeah dude, totally surprised me today. Solid 3 foot down in high-tide friendly South Jersey this morning.
I actually had a good time, and I never have a good time.......
Rippable with plenty of little dumpy bowls to pull into. Nice day......offshores........I was digging it.
Dude, let the negativity become you.......embrace it. That's what you're supposed to do on the internet.

Considering the dominant swell was 3.9 feet west at 5 seconds.(west swells don't hit town beach) I really have a hard time believing that. You drove like 3 hours for this today? Seriously? I also watched the cam and it was barely knee high mostly just slamming on the beach with maybe a thigh high set once in a blue moon. The cam also has a live streaming feed.
I guess chest high is the swellinfo equivalent of knee high. Sort of like the opposite of the Hawaiian scale.
Did the swell just pop up for like an hour or two and you got really lucky?
Well I'm glad you had fun anyway!
