I'm in the same boat at the moment, but not even due to work schedule.... Like I told my buddy the other day--it just seems like the universe doesn't want me to surf anymore.
-3 swells ago.... committed to go out of town and visit family
-2 swells ago.... Laid up with a wicked cold about to make my head explode
-Yesterday afternoon.... trying frantically to get to a point where I can hopefully finish up the major drivetrain work I'm doing on my Cruiser today or tomorrow... the stuff I didn't get to last week because I was freaking sick.
Same here. I can go anytime there's waves. I see the ocean everyday. I'm within feet 4 to 5 times a week. and nuttin.
Next Fri Sat and Sun will be epic with unusually hot water temps. I'm heading to the azz crack of Alabama.
