Quick question, not for nor against - why step offs instead of just towing in via rope?
The guys at my break, Belmar NJ, use a rope... They come out when it's head hi or bigger but don't get in anyone's way- and are actually really friendly. If you wave at them and tell them your friends with Frosty, they will let you try! When it gets huge (23ft), it the only way to really hook into one of those bombs
I think this thread is hilarious because NO ONE went to surf SS on big swells before Colin started the Backwoods Crew.
Obviously you haven't been riding there that long.
I have been riding there a long time & never once used a ski. I was out that day & it was quite a bit smaller than expected. Colin & the guys were getting out when I got out in the afternoon. It was also crowded with a whole bunch of new faces, some because of the holiday but a lot of people because of all the social media BS & trying to get a picture or a vid clip. You also have new heads showing up taking vids & photos & throwing them on FB with exact location before they get out of the parking lot. It's not a secret, but don't blow a wad throwing it on the internet or go elsewhere.
