    The inshore buoy was reading 15 second swell period...pretty nice setup with that storm spinning off Nova Scotia.








    Awesome photos, thanks for keeping the stoke alive, Mitchell!
    It was just like that down here today as well - perfect clean A frames (if I were a GI Joe action figure).

    Holy hell. Those are some goods, Mitch. I was at the wrong place, wrong time today. Glad to hear some of you fellas got it.

    took off a bit early from work to light the stoke of sharing waves with some buds who managed to do the same. Well worth it, i think. It was pounding HH at the home front beach break, a well deserved paddle out. One side of the pier read rights, and on the other side saw lefts. I went in for the rights (don't have a preference), much easier route to get into the water without a lengthy, pounding paddle out. Took the 7'2" Angulo Fisch "Hog Molly", since there was a bit mush. Best wave perhaps was one that developed from white wash to splitting into several sections - mini-barrels stuff. The waves were breaking everywhere, no set line to the madness, but still kept a pretty clean shape. The longer i stayed in, the more fun i had. It got dark tho, and my buddies paddled in a good bit before i gave up too. Truly fantastic, wasn't expecting the size, and got plenty to hold me off til next wknd. Brought in some donuts today to the office to deflect any criticism for dipping out early

    Swell faded and all that's left is small / weak long period lines breaking close to shore, tide had it drained out. I was all suited up and ready to go but it wasn't enough to get wet. Might be better now with a little more water, but doubt it.

    We got another little pulse from that long period system Mitchell gave us all a heads up on. Yesterday it wasn't really working but today was a solid waist high with an occasional chest high peak on the outside every 10-15 minutes or so. I rode the LB and caught many fun rides, almost all the way the shore until it got deep on the inside and fizzled out. These had good form on the peak but the shoulders were a bit soft and crumbly, making the LB the right call.

    Hope you are getting the waves you seek

  10. I had three surf this week the first were at Sandy Beach and Pools in Puerto Rico. I am 49 and have only been surfing just a handful of times per year for at least the last 10 years.Sandy Beach was four to five feet and that was my first surf in 6 months. Needless to say it took the second session to really get my feet back and surf adequately. It felt bad being a decent surfer to be schooled by a 25 year old kid out there, but I did have to keep things in perspective.Flew home on Tuesday said I'm going to surf this winter went and bought a wetsuit. Went out on Wednesday for my first mid-February surf the same 10 or 15 years. I had a blast was quite warm and caught a few on the longboard I am stoked to be stoked again I will surf a lot with my daughter this year.
