    Mild summer weather

    Buoys, it's been nearly perfect weather each weekend of the summah after a similar spring. The polar vortex unleashed a certain wrath though we've been treated to some great days out there recently. We've had some great surf sessions in this weather (less as of late) and it's made for some great family outing time. Hope you bros have all been rewarded by lots of that! Great times with family and friends are making this a heck of a summah already.

    It really has been a blessing. Weather-wise, best summer in a long time, with a few waves to boot. It hasn't even been too hard on the Phin up here, and we're cooler temp creatures.

    For each of the past three weeks, we've had a major thunderstorm blow through here during the work week. Last week was the worst with funnel cloud sightings, building damage, flooding, and injuries at the VB Oceanfront and other area locations. Surf has generally been 2 ft or less, except for a day or two when Arthur passed by us.

    How have your weekends been though bro? They've been great here, much to the enjoyment of families and the 9-5 man.

    The weekend before last, the mornings were nice. Conditions glassy and surprisingly better than forecasted or reported. Didn't get out this past weekend. Domestic obligations.

    Ditto for superb (weather) wknds in the mid-Atlantic.

    Having said that: the higher gasoline prices and the astronomical gouging airfares seem to have provided momentum for every ASSWIPING douche canoe who wants to litter the beach & blast his hindu music at AI this year.

    What the hell happened...?! AI has been invaded by hordes of complete douche canoes.

    AI used to be surf fishermen, surfers & eccentric people driving their rigs onto the beach, and hanging out ISO quiet, a bit of solitude & the sound of the ocean, the wind & the occasional 'you fukker' followed by the slap of hand on bleeding leg (horseflies).

    Now...?! These a-holes roll in there & find a place on the beach & crank up Muslim rap. I shiiiite you not on that one.
    Another one: several bruthuhs stumbling around behind their Ford parked on the beach with the speakers blasting Skynyrd's 'That Smell'.......and they're bellowing along! What's next, 'Sweet Home Alabama' featuring the homebuoyz chorus...?!

    Talk about failure of situational awareness.

    Then there was the total douche canal named 'Sam.' I'm out in the ocean catchign a few, and I glance back inland only to see some a-wipe pull in next to my truck on the beach. Like, 4' off my boards. Said a-wipe proceeds to pitch massive red umbrellas, chairs & coolers directly in back of my rig, between my rig & the ocean.

    I'd never seen this in years going to AI.

    Not pleased. Surfed a few more, all th while watching this a-wipe set up on the beach. GF also in the ocean surfing, asking what are you going to do, please just let it go.

    Oh, ok, sure.

    Get out, walk up to my rig. D-bag Sam sitting there with his shades on: sitting behind my rig, all spread out.

    One of my developed skills in life is that I can make anyone snap. I could make hayzeus effing keerist utter the lordy's bronze age name in vain. Just sayin.' Oh, and even better is I can back it up if a dummy ever takes a swing at me.

    Without wasting your time on the details, I crouched down & I spoke to Sam, up close & personal. Repeatedly. He finally snapped, shrieking obscenities while pulling out his umbrellas & his chairs from the sand in back of my rig.

    Mission accomplished. But I gotta say: AI has gone to hell in a handbasket this summer.

    The Betties are in love with summer! Florida summed is hotter than hot but slow and relaxed. Today I skip work for the morning, at least, to surf. Sat was ankle to knee high. Yesterday was a total surprise, under called by all: 2-3' with occasional waist High semi clean until about 9:30, when wind started to create a semi chop but still super fun.

    Today forecast to knee offshore breeze, let's see if it's bigger like yesterday.

    AI is in my backyard...practically walking distance...never experienced this in my many years on ai..sure there is always gonna be an idiot here and there...but there is one of those everywhere. AI is great...solitude, especially when the beach is open all the way down. Tough to fine places like that anymore.

    Weather has been great. Down at outer banks this week. Weather has been nice, tho starting to blow and surf has been relatively poor...maybe Thursday. Must say...Been enjoying this summer greatly with my kids, family, and friends. "Life is good"

    Really AI has seemed about standard to me so far, but I don't go out at the offroad vehicle area either, so maybe that's the difference.
