    I want some waves

    Damn man, there was some decent wind chop yesterday, but at that exact time i managed to get a stomach bug and couldn't go. Now all it says is knee high for awhile and im just craving overhead barrels or something gnarly. Did anyone else try to surf the wind chop yesterday?

    Pure glass yesterday morning in southern RI. Then the wind turned offshore. All in all pretty sweet day.

    Like MVsurfer said, Damn man. I wanted to head down there so bad but as well as MV, I got sick. I wasn't able to go the weekend before either. I saw the swell and I felt like kicking my wall. Of course on top of all that its knee high for as far as the eye can see down the charts. Cant wait til winter!!!!!1!!1! Anyway, hope you scored some. By the looks of the cam it looked pretty fun.

    Don't worry young feller, there'll be plenty more. The little bump from Gabby last weekend was definitely fun, as was the little windswell this weekend. Stayed on the south coast, I think southern exposure was key for the swell this weekend, could explain why it was $hittier further north.

    Definitely. The E/SE was powerless.

    Yeah man, I can't wait for winter. Just ordered a new 3/2 bibbed hood so I'm ready for it. With that and my 7 mil suit I could probably go surfing off Antarctica and be warm

    We had slightly cleaner than wind chop yesterday, but I couldn't get out. All day tomorrow looks decent here according to both SwellInfo and Surfline. I'm sure you'll get something ride-able if we are. I for sure plan to get out tomorrow evening.

    According to the long-term locals where I am we had a "record breaking" flat summer. To this point the 2013 hurricane season has been disappointing, but it's far from over.

    I hate to be "that guy" but in all seriousness here... Yeah, there were a few days this summer that were awesome. Yeah, there were some days that were bigger than I anticipated. Some really clean, offshore, glassy mornings. But really, we haven't had "BIG" surf in awhile.

    We might have had a few days where it was pushing shoulder to head, but it has been a long time since I rode a wave where I got that "oh **** this wave is a big wave" feeling. I wish I could experience that feeling before I'm covered from head to toe in neoprene, but I guess that comes with the territory.

    WINTER IS COMING

    It's funny because after surfing a few times this weekend, when I got out of the water yesterday I was so sore and tired I thought I've had enough surfing for the week.

    Now less than 24 hours later I'm mentally energized after looking at the report and cams showing clean thigh high waves and I want to gtfo of this office grab my board and paddle out again

    edit: opps, wrong region
