    G0d Damn, beautiful F$@kin' waves!
    Jersey is legit, I've surfed some good swells in Jerz.

    Or is that Bill?
    yea that was the april 17th swell,i typed august for some reason.

    bill was big,biggest I ever seen,but didn't have good shape.there were lots of closeouts,even at the spots that can handle the size and long period.

    First time in my life I paddled out undergunned. 6'3 Rusty. Cant remember the dimensions. Board died on a trip to Costa the next year. (airlines, not beach break... ugh) Still got a couple of good waves, and still have not gotten a gun, or even a mini gun. The 24th was the best day of surfing I've ever had. Bill.... my god I remember you like it was yesterday.

    its crazy how storms move.august 23rd was the day in nj,I think it was a sunday,and the next day up in new England it looked like this.idk how u paddled out on a 6'3 I would've been terrified on such a small board.i had some epic footage of bill on a camcorder with one of those little tapes that u put in a big vcr tape to watch on tv.would be cool if there was some way to put it online.i remember I thought it looked like sunset beach Hawaii where I was out,i never seen waves break so far out and the longest lines I ever seen

    this is some good footage of sandy in long beach ny,before sandy hit ofcourse,and u can see how the waves go from epic cane swell to death on a stick swell.i didn't surf sandy as im sure most people in the northeast didn't,but even if I had the chance no way I would paddle out without a ski.u lose your board that far out theres no way ur making it in.

    Gaff, that is awesome! I am happy for you, my friend...won't be long.

    Seldom and Sniffer, I second what Zombie said...I'll be yelling both your names.

    Cep, I knew from your description of the tornadoes, that day was epic.
    I got my a$$ handed to me that day, I was a little out of shape at the time.
    It was really too down here, but nowhere near as beautiful as that pic you posted.

    Scobes, hope everything's going good for you out on the left coast.

    Bill was a great swell.
    My buddy and I paddled out during a lightning storm...I pretty much said F it, there was no way I was missing that Sh;t!

    Crazy thing about Bill was the violent ragdolling I was feeling everytime I went underwater.

    I am so amped for tomorrow!!!

    USE the DEUCE
    Dude, I just got some new work pants so I actually have a pair to sacrifice...but I think I woulda got fired if I wasn't here yesterday, only guy from our department here and my boss had to call me for a couple things. Kinda shot myself in the foot last tuesday for that windswell. If by chance we get another Bertha-esque storm before August is out I will not miss it, come hell, high water, or sh!tty pants.

    And you're welcome good sir, methinks it's always that wet

    Thanks Koki, much appreciated!

    Cep, that was cool Sandy footage. We were out the day before, found a little nook that was just pushing HH-OH...had to gas up before the trip home and took me a while to find a station that actually had gas, funny now but I was slightly concerned at the time.
