Yesterday looked pretty darn manageable up her in NH. Didn't get on it due to broken pinky finger and cast, but it was looking to b e at least waist to stomach short period wind slop and clean. My buddy got out on it early and said it was rippable and very few souls to contend with. Even at one of the premier NH lineups.
Broken bones suck. especially in the right hand causing everything to be done lefty. Wiping the arse can be a messy situation... ever seen a walrus try to put on lipstick? kinda like that

I've learned theres always a wave even when the forcast says flat. I also use the time to paddle paddle paddle and get my arm and lung strength up. so worth it!

^^^ That's what I'm saying Alvin. You can work out but the best way to become a stronger paddler is to get in the water. When your caught inside on a big day you'll be thankful.
Last Saturday was small here, but air & water were high 30's and the sun was out. Great day to be on the water.

Wait till summer and get a beater... will catch anything!
yeah, so i guess it all adds up to what a lot of the people have been saying on here. if you really gotta go, and there doesn't seem to be anything better on the horizon then it's best to just get out there...if you don't you'll never know what you've been missing, and if you do you'll know what you coulda missed! clean air, salty water, beautiful views, piece of mind, and rhythm for the soul. waves or no waves, get your fill and call it a day...a good day...

^^^ there was a day early this winter when I was trying a few new spots out. Tried this one spot out, high tide and maybe knee high at best. Surfed for about an hour but caught ONE wave that made the whole session worth it. One wave just peeled down the beach and I rode a perfect knee high wave in perfect trim. That one knee high wave was so perfect that it held me over till the next time I got out. It was worth it. And if I didn't get out and catch that wave I would of been in a terrible mood dreaming about the wave I COULD of had. Just get out. Have fun. Do your thing.

get something that is fun regardless of waves. Flat water SUP, kayak, canoe, and when it gets warmer some swim fins. The ocean is full of endless opportunities to have an enjoyable day, with an open mind you will find yourself complaining less about flat days and small surf on the computer and actually enjoying the ocean for what it is.
