    anyone know why?
    Dangerous rips. If no one is in the water, the guards don't have the issue of putting themselves at risk to save an idiot. Yes they're obligated to save them if something happens, but they're told not to put themselves in harms way. Same thing with shark attacks. If someone gets bit, they don't have to swim out if they're not comfortable.

    The boards are staying dry Sunday- I'll wait for some real juice later this fall and winter.
    since when don't a-frames barrel...?

    i'll surf anything man, dunno why there is so much negativity on the forums for this swell. where's everyones stoke at?! it was going off if you knew where to look...even if you didn't know where to look it was overhead/well overhead and closing out in OCMD on incoming tide saturday afternoon. i watched it all morning, had a half day as a guard. there were some guys seriously charging it, and getting some massive barrels at low tide! There was a sea kayaker straight up committing suicide on some of the bomb sets, and he looked like an ant on them.

    as far as the late afternoon went, an island to the south was sporting a super long paddle with sets well overhead and double overhead on the outside sets. it was peeling all the way in on some of those sets too. the long ass paddle kept a lot of people out, as well as the big drops, but the old guys were charging just as hard as the young. plenty of waves to go around as well.

    hurricanes are almost always hyped beyond reality. having said that, no complaints from me. Saturday had some semi junky size in s jerz and the beauty was there were no kooks and longboards in the line up. Everybody who made it out knew what they were doing. the lb'ers just couldn't make it out and the newbies surfed the whitewater in the inside. the paddle out was 300 plus yards but well worth it. yesterday morning was fun but not epic. good waves with some size (head high). unfortunately the winds went to sh*t in the afternoon and it was much smaller and junkier in the evening (like wast high). That brought out the less experienced. It was funny how a group of guys on NSPs (Need Some Practice) were bragging to a bunch of girls on the beach how the 'totally scored some huge hurricane surf'.

    Love the negative

    Whoever is posting that this swell sucked or was a letdown is just proving the fact that miserable people love to try to spread their misery. This was an awesome swell, and if you had enough brains and patience you could have scored pretty epic stuff without too much of a crowd all weekend long. I know I did. Hit 4 or 5 totally different spots at the right times and it was awesome...sometimes world class. Here's to a great fall. Hope to not see you anger mongers anywhere....I'm sure I won't. Later!!

    I am not hating on the fact that we had OH waves in August (not DOH as some have claimed on Delmarva), but it was far from epic or world class. Also Bill was lacking in size for a storm that was so hyped. Fall, winter & spring are bigger & much better than what Bill offered up.

    Regardless, I had fun this w/e & am looking forward to fall & winter swells.

    Finally someone with a reputable status on this site speaks up. Definitely not epic. It was fun..but still a bust as far as I am concerned. Ernesto was a much much better storm...granted it pretty much hit us.

    I will take Ernesto any day for sure. One of the better tropical swells for us in years.

    As I said, I still had fun, but Bill was more like a William & didn't live up to the hype. Also got tired of hearing it was DOH. The take off section doesn't count & there were way to many clueless people that were able to make it out in the lineup to be a legit solid swell. If it was they wouldn't have made it out. Most of the DOH talk was from NSIRI which I know I should ignore because even when NS gets DOH, it still only = an OH wave anywhere else. AI is pretty similar to NS; big & easy take off, a wall with maybe a barrel pocket or two, but lacking the draining barrels or top to bottom sections.

    Ernesto was lots of fun. But, Bill was also lots of fun as well. 6-8ft is 5ft bigger than it's been for the majority of the summer.
