    Boston-area surfers, there is swell on the buoys this morning - go surfing!

    It looks like an Easterly swell has arrived - I hope it's getting in to the beaches by now. I have to make Spinach-shetake calzones this morning so I will miss the high-tide session at 9:19AM (high-tide).

    Tide is pretty neap today - 8.9 ft. high, like 1 foot low. That means well, it just means less reflections off of the seawalls.

    Time to surf. There isn't much in the forecast so get it now while it's here and the winds are reasonable cooperative.

    Don't quit your job and don't look for a government (G-job) unless you are a consultant like myself!



    PS Notice how I spell shetake (the censorship script nabbed my original spelling)

    Well, nothing like this for a pre-surf (and after-surf) meal!

    Hahaha, good way around it. Dude those are my favorite in terms of edibles by far. I have some morels dried and ready to go I just have no idea how to prepare them. Glad you got some Lewaves, nice calzone.

    Just halve the morels lengthwise, rinse any obvious dirt off (most morel dirt is probably just good flavor), put morels in zip-loc with very light dusting of flour (less than a teaspoon for 30 morels), shake, and fry in whatever oil or butter or mixture of the two. If they are dried, you can soak them for 5 minutes in water to rehydrate.

    The shetakes need to be soaked for a half hour in water since a small number of the shetakes are real tough - most of the shetakes only take about 5 or 10 minutes to rehydrate.

    I should have told everyone to quit their jobs - the swell was fabulous in Hull! I spent about 4 hours in two sessions with two different shortboards. The neap tide caused an extended period of mid-tide behavior so almost all day (other than extreme low-tide for about an hour) was perfect. Definitely a few head-high sets or better. The wait for a ride was only like seconds to a minute or so. Constant pumping swell - now my right heel is sore (I don't think it's a disease, perhaps a bruise).

    For the records, my calzone recipe is straight from the British chef Jamie Oliver on tv - I just subbed the shetakes for the regular mushrooms. I have two more giant ones still to eat.

    Nice sharing the stoke with everyone out there - I also got to film one of my wild squirrel-buddies and met a real nice South African Bull Mastiff named May. What a difference a day makes in a man's life! Just takes a little tropical swell.

    Last night was smaller but clean as hell and mad stokey. This morning was a complete waste of time with pure closeouts. Let's hope this good swell is not lost on excessively high tide and winds. Damn man.

    You should be just fine brah. If you're out at the break by 5 you're stoked bc it's bigger swell than originally forecasted and the winds are calming as the tide goes out. Spicoli wants all the Emass brahs to score today.
