OK grom dude! Your thread made me think back, but due to foggy conditions I'll just go back to the last best session since the Sandy Frankenstorm, which was sketchy due to how close it passed, size of swell, and lack of lulls.
Last day of February,and I remember distinctly because turtle nesting season starts March 1. There was a dredge about 200 yards north of the jetty, and it had to be moved that night at midnight due to Federal laws governing sea turtle protocol. It was about the same distance from shore as the end of the jetty, and it had been there for about a week.
I got to the beach, knowing there was a swell, but not how big, so I brought my longboard and my shortboard just in case. I parked at the end of the trail, and walked down, and it looked like a dream. It was raining barely, kinda misty, and about 60 degrees air temp, 72 degree water ( sorry guys, it says warm next to the Gulfstream year round). No wind. At all. Slate grey water, slate grey sky. Hard to differentiate the horizon. Sea and sky blended into a monochromatic palate.
I saw what looked like a flock of pelicans bobbing on the water just north of the dredge. All of a sudden, a set broke the plane of the sheet glass water, and it wedged up and refracted off the dredge to a 10 foot (face) A frame, and the pelicans turned into surfers, scrambling for the peak, and it tubed and spit right against the grain, and walled up left towards the jetty.
I ran to my car, grabbed he shortboard, almost ****ting my boardshorts. Once I made it into the lineup, I saw there was a mix of locals and a few lifeguards and sponsored guys from another break. They were clueless. A buddy's kid who is 21 now, owned it. It was one of those days when your A game shows up, and every right I dropped into was a barrel for 3 seconds, and over half I made it out of! The lefts were 3 to 4 foot overhead walls that could be hacked and shredded. The crew was on fire, and there was not a drop of water out of place.
It has totally sucked since then. Peace!

If memory serves, every session before the age of 18 was the best ever.
I think it's hard to pick a best ever session. My most memorable this year was on a six day trip to CR this August. Me and three buds went to Esterillos Centro on a day it was forecasted 4'...our smallest day. When we pulled up we were surprised what looked like a head high day super clean with no one out. So we all paddle out together and Im duck diving...and duck diving... and after about thirty duck dives before I was like WTF? I'm either super tired or this current is out of control. When I look around we're all only about half way out and the head high waves are f...ing bombs. But they were perfect bombs! It took @45 minutes and 75 duck dives to freedom but we all made it out. I realized how big it was when dropping in and it took 3-4 times longer to set the bottom turn and if you didn't kick out you got a taste of the juice and were sent back to 20 duck dive territory. Worth every dive though for sure!

My best session ever was with my psychic, when she predicted that in 2014 the American Civil War would begin anew as Northeast gangbangers and Midwest farmers united against Southern good 'ole boys and Christian fundamentalists in a conflict so idiotic that the socialist American military, with the help of all rational citizens, brutally eliminated both fighting sides, forever altering the American landscape and borders, thus raising the collective American intelligence ranking to 217th in the world, barely beating the 218th most intelligent nation, a country of deranged citizens, with brains forever damaged by toxic woodworking chemicals, the freshly minted nation of New Zeal-Mainelandia.

Ive also had Octobers in NJ that were just mindblowing, you cant imagine that it would get *THAT* good and only have you and 5 friends on a peak, just so so good

one of those TS swells from 2011, had been pumping for like 4 days, was on the decline and only supposed to be 2-4 ft. Hugely undercalled (thanks swellinfo!). I show up at daybreak for perfect, machine like, stand up barrels and not a soul in sight at one of VB's most coveted spots. My buddy and I traded perfect waves for about two hours before the crowd got on it. Then we went to mary's and had the "how awesome was that?" discussion over some biscuits. Good times.
