Me and two buddies went out at Java East, it was so rough, my buddies couldn't get out past the break. I managed to get out about 4 times,.....WOW.....intense. The waves were so huge, we were out past the peir, no joke some waves looked to be 8-10 ft. I surfed 4 of the biggest waves of my life. the drop in was so intense, sent butterflies in my stomach just catching them,.....what a rush.But honestly the water was too rough.We went to Springmaid peir, and some of the waves were crashing on the peir...CRAZY, but we are going to go back out Saturday & Sunday, hoping for nice waves.
I went out this morning, I couldn't really get out past the break. As soon as I got into deep water the currents swept me south towards the pier. This was early, before the wind got too bad. I wound up bodyboarding the shorebreak for a while, then the wind got stronger and I couldn't even do that. Twisted my ankle on a takeoff 'cause the choppy waves twisted my fin around. The wind was so strong that the sand was blowing around like drifting snow in a blizzard.
It'd be nice if it cleaned up for the weekend, but the forecast says choppy.
wb and you can find me at crystal and sweetwater and all over wb.

you need to hit the gym.
it was like 4-6ft where I was at. some of the sets were lining up. otherwise it was complete chaos. very unorganized.
i was actually talking that its tough to paddle out when it's head high choppy and the wind is blowing like sh:t and im riding my longboard. i can actuall paddle with ease on my shortboard but when im on the longboard its tough since you trully cant duckdive with ease like your on a shortboard.
