Nothing worked today... 2 good rides in the beginning, only waist high, only ten second rides at best...
The rest of the session I couldn't stop pearling. I swear I have bad luck when I'm wearing a leash. I put it on cause it was getting a little crowded which isn't usually a big deal (my friend insisted we surf at probably the most crowded jetty in south jersey) but for whatever reason a couple people were standing next to their boards in the middle of the break not doing anything and I was afraid of drilling them if I kept on eating sh*t.
Waves started closing out. I couldn't make the drops consistently. It was like I never surfed before. Then after finally catching a wave... as I was kicking out I flip my f*cking board right into my eye socket. Probably because the stinking leash was wrapped up. Black eye to end the day.
FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS. All in all wasn't too bad out there, just wasn't my day. wow I sound like a little b*tch. This bassplayer is going to disappear now. flame on.

One of those days...

Brah, 10 second rides? That's an eternity to us in New England lately (as in last 5 months) unless you're on a cutter (aka SUP or 10+ footer). "Only waist high"??? If I'd have been allowed to bargain digits and toes for waves to Mother Nature this summer here, I'd have four nubs for appendages right now.
I got up at 6 and hammered out a ton of work then hit the break at 830am for 90 mins and got about 15 rides. None of them more than 4-5 seconds due to lack of size and not breaking at the higher than normal tide (full moon Sat at 130am) but I will take them. It was beautiful out too, still is. Offshores all afternoon and evening and I will definitely be out again in a few hours for lower tide. Tomorrow is the titties for conditions all around here all day and night so I'm envisioning a solid 7-8 hours of charging 4-6 footers that will be fairly clean.
You're in NJ. Yes, you had heavy onshores last week but a schitt ton of swell height lately so you know you were able to have some fun in that chop for days. I don't want to hear a damn thing about
"woe is me we only have waist height here."
No hate intended brah, just a lil tough love and telling you what you need to hear. I don't think you Mid-Atlantic folk have a clue to the pond that we've had to look at for months. Even last weekend when it was supposed to be awesome, it just all closed out Sat & Sun for the most part. If tomorrow tanks out then people will need to stay at least 300 feet from me until at least Thursday when I go out west.
Two things real quick:
JERSEY IS THIRD WORLD, NOT FIRST
Unless you've had to book a 3,000+ mile flight each way to find notable swell in the last 5 months, you have no right to air your crap and instead should drown your unsubstantiated sorrows in a case of Yuengling...which btw is confirmed to be coming back to Mass in 2014 yessss!!!!!!!!!

I agree with everyone in this thread. whining. Though- if you met me in the real world you would probably like me. I just have a self deprecating personality from a lack of ego and sometimes a dry sarcastic humor which probably isn't funny to anyone. I was hoping to make you feel better about yourselves. I did go to work today too; I haven't had a day off in two weeks, though my job probably is easier than most peoples.
I guess you guys always see the silver lining, even when you have a surf where things don't go good for you. I'll learn. Maybe I was just hoping to make your sh*tty day better, but I made it worse, so sorry dudes. Now I'm off to bathe in my favorite shampoo. Maybe mommy will read me a story. Love you, no homo and full homo.
I'll split a case with you Spicoli, we can watch Rick lose the Pipe Masters.
