    You wish you knew what exactly in your first year of surfing? Doug, let's speak in full English sentences, not the vernacular of your avatar dude. I know you're at a loss for words due to your excitement with the NFL Playoffs?! starting later today.

    So Doug and PB&J, are you insinuating that Zippy is right and there's no such thing as a closeout? That every wave is truly peeling and rideable and it's up to the surfer to get his schitt together and make the sections? Maybe we can have grom brah put a poll up for this once he puts down his next 6 cases of Jolt Cola and his blood glucose normalizes.

    I went surfing this morning. In New Jersey. Southern New Jersey. The air was cold. The water was cold. How cold? Don't know. Waves were good. Bout waist chest high. Slack winds but an occasional gust. I caught waves. I got cold so I got out after an hour or so. I had FUN. I drove the 10 minutes home in my suit. If you are a surfer and you have fun surfing then go and ****ing surf for ****'s sake. Don't turn it into a 9 page debate. There is nothing "core" about what I did. I just went surfing. You guys think too much

    Jolt Cola.... wow. When I was a kid, the neighborhood boys and I would drink Jolt Cola by the liter. As the times changed, the boys became men, and the Jolt wasn't enough.

    Now when all the guys get together, we get a big bowl, fill it with Jolt Cola, and pour in a bottle of Jack Daniels. You get so worked up!! We call it "Jackin' Off."

    emass- don't be silly.. he's saying that there's variation in wave ridability.... and variation in surfer ability... the better the surfer, the more likely he/she can do more on a a given wave. The rare talented surfer (as opposed to real good surfers or old lame hacks like me)will take the "ugly" closeout and surf the s*** out it. Watch decent level competitions and you see this time and again.

    Being a real good surfer is the target most everybody aims for... only a few have talent - its genetic (i.e WCT pros). So emass, if you're over 18 and currently can't make every wave, than YES, there probably will be waves you will never be able to surf (and live).

    It wasn't really that good yesterday. Size and some sick ones if you were lined up, but way to much current and wind to make it much more than anything outside of luck. Today was pretty fun though. Strange and lumpy here, I bet the NC boys are scoring hard.

    There are closeouts that can't be ridden. And then there are waves that are good if you could make it. They use to consider Pipeline a closeout... A lot of the "perfect" waves that Kelly travels to would be no fun to most and considered a closeout. Kelly calls them barrels.

    No Eastern Mass, I believe in close-outs. I see them frequently.

    Pros will even say that a wave is "too fast" to make. And that's not even a real close-out.....it's just too fast.

    But I've seen block-long walls rise and shut down uniformly the whole dang block.....

    The close out has many varieties to it.......and my brain can't get into that right now.

    But they exist........I've seen 'em.

    Sorry Eastern Mass if you thought I was snarking you. I wasn't. I had other things on my mind, and was mildly shocked that this topic exists. So, if I sounded snarky, I didn't mean to. I can see why you took offense though.

    You know you think you have seen it all on here........

    And now there's a debate aboot whether close-outs exist...........

    And so much for trying to be positive in 2014. I think I have been snarky on numerous occasions already. Every thread starts into a whipping post. I might have to make a decision: Yoga, vegetables and positivity or Swellinfo.com.

    And I hate yoga.....
