surfing as a working man is more frustration than stoke.i can recall so many days when I was out too early or too late and conditions were crappy winds,then get home and see epic barrels 2 hrs later.i never knew how much wind direction affects waves.
Yes, I agree 100%. I have to leave for work before the sun is up (even in the Summer). Therefore, I can only surf evenings and weekends. The evenings always bring increased wind and chop here, unless it is a rare calm day. So, I barely get out more than a couple times a week. I was so happy that Arthur clean up day was the 4th. I was off work and had a lot of fun late morning. I hate the damn side shore wind here. It seems to be so friggin common.
