    I caught it shoulder high and drifty kinda windblown chunks late afternoon yesterday, and hit it early this am on the incoming tide, the wind still on it a bit and still drifty and bumpy and dumpy but still fun. My buddy just got back from Palm Beach north end and said it was firing at head high plus and he is 6'4". He said it was pretty clean and lined up, and uncrowded, then 20 people, like they got off a bus paddled out and the tide made it funky. I don't think there will be much left tomorrow, but I'm gonna hit it early again. It was grrrrreat to catch a few after so long. My first one yesterday, my legs were all stiff and I almost kooked it from the start, then I remembered to bend the knees. Duh!

    Looks like it's 6-7' at certain spots in Brevard / Volusia right now, and is cleaning up nicely, I gotta think there will be plenty tomorrow and the next day, maybe size will drop some but clean conditions. Praying it lingers through the weekend, I'll take anything I can get, because I can't leave work right now to get on it. This is killing me...

There is still energy out there, but I would for sure wait for the tide push unless you want to log it for a bit. Wind also switched on me mid session. Went from light offshore to side/onshore. Worth it for sure, but I blew the AM tide push because I had a meeting, but looking forward for the evening. I am hoping that Cristobal sticks around for a nice, goodbye AM cleanup session, but I have a sinking feeling that there won't be much left tomorrow, despite what the forecast said. Maybe it was all the tide, but it sure felt like the surf from this one is on it's way in the wrong direction now.
    Waist high is short board worthy for me. I will be hitting it at low tide and sticking around for the buildup.

    2 great sessions down. Topsail was already head high-ish/clean-ish for the d.p. and WB just after lunch was a yawn. all closeouts on real shallow sandbars. me and wB just don't get along but i had to give it a shot while i was on that side of town. let's hope tomorrows break is actually breaking... #notsunskipper oh and too the crew that I chatted with from NMB, good on ya for taking the young kid that was with ya on so many hurricane chasing surfaris. ( i shared the lineup with a few of yall at Holden for Arthur). He looked beyond stoked. hope you guys scored

    Is it just us lazy a$$ Florida surfers, or how about the rest of ya'll. The overwheliming consensus has been "I can't believe how out of shape I am, it's time to start running or skating or something." Unless you've been traveling to Centro or California, the only way to get into surf shape is to surf. No waves all summer = out of breath on the first few drifts. At least 5 different friends, all who surf really well, concur on how sad it feels to run out of gas after only an hour or so. Maybe by Halloween things will shape up. I think we have lots and lots of swell headed our way on the lower East Coast for the next eight months, due to a building El Nino.

    Glad to hear some of you guys are scoring. I'll be doing my 2.5 excursion before sunrise tomorrow on the Delmarva. Very stoked. Hope everyone cashes in!

    weird today.

    was more like 5 ft at 5 seconds with a goofy northeast cross chop. every 15 minutes a 2 wave set of head high mush monsters would pop up.

    Delmarva report from around 6 p.m. Surfed all afternoon, it was picking up a bit towards evening. No bombs coming in at all... just fun sized, light onshore conditions.

    Why these people are wearing any rubber at all is beyond me. The water was easily mid-upper 70s.

    Typical set wave:
