    those are some real nice little waves. How often does that happen there?

    man after living in SWFL for a few years it always makes me giggle what you guys consider "firing"

    Yeah yeah I know, firing is a bit strong I guess but when its flat most of the time, its firing to us! It breaks like that most every cold front. Nice little chest high clean up today. I'm bringing the grom out after school for some chest to head high (on him) haha. We take what we can get. Thank your lucky stars you dont live here. If I didnt have a great job and family business here I would have left long ago. We mostly go east for our fix but when your home break serves up some goods it can't be beat.

    Did your time huh? I guess it is sort of like a prison sentence. I always say to my brother in law, "we might as well be mountain climbers because there aren't any mountains here either." Thats why we get big offshore boats and fish our azzes off. That and a few trips to PR every year along with some east coast jaunts gets us by. Like I said, you think your break sucks? We hardly break.

    no no i worked for a company down there. had a contracted amount of time i was to be working the project. once the project finished i bailed.

    i would go to stump pass and surf there. surfed venice jetties a few times too. maybe 10 rideable days in 2 years and it was usually blowing like the ****ens out of the north or south when there were waves.

    2/2? I skinned it. The water is 74 degrees! I dont know why there are even wearing suits. It was and still is blowing about 10 knots offshore. The gulf always has that emerald green water down in AMI. I'm just as excited about the fishing ready to go off. The snook are biting, the grouper and snapper are hitting great offshore. The Kingfish run has begun and the tarpon are around the corner. Spring rules here!
