    delaware was frigid. most people including myself were wearing 3/2's.

    i've noticed a lot of variability between different spots.

    There have been days recently in ocmd that were insanely different. For instance I Dp'd it uptown one day bareback, and went down to 45th that afternoon with only a set of trunks and didn't stop shivering the whole time. Kind of sucks because I've made the wrong call on gear a few times and have ended up freezing or hot as hell. But I wouldn't really complain because last year I can't remember any days that were real warm like the ones we've had so far.

    Suppa Chilly in Sea Girt dis mornin

    wow what a difference from this weekend, the south wind gets on it and it doesn't take long for that upwelling to start, I will take cold water and waves anyday, rather than warm water and dismal surf.

    Forget the Bouys!

    It's just a grand conspiracy to get the tourista's to come to the beach. Besides, we don't surf or swim at the Bouy do we? OCM was NOT 74 degrees in the surf zone at any time in the past five days unless you're sitting off the end of the inlet jetty on an outgoing tide with the sea grass swirling around you. Even then, the temps at depth were most likely in the low sixties. Even the guards were complaining. Lest any of us forget, Last July 19 we were still wearing full 3/2 wetsuits, for a really good reason. The up side is that it was warm through November, so who's complaining?
