    Thumbs up Sunday surf stories, share! (11/15)

    hope everyone scored today, it was sooo much fun!

    hit up maryland surf spots today:
    AI was breaking way far out, lining up nice with long lefts and occasional long rights. set's solid head high with some fairly consistent overhead sets rollin in. LONG paddle, and the inside was real tough if you got stuck during sets. definitely a bicep burner today.

    after AI we hit OC midtown for some barrels before dark. Also super fun, much easier paddle, shallow, and some really nice left and right barrels! good form! smaller than AI by a few feet, but still chest-head high sets. hopefully the morning will have light enough winds to score before it gets chopped up.

    and what a sublime day, could it have been any more perfect? it was glassy with size and form and the weather was just perfect. balmy and beautiful with a perfect swell, nothing i'd rather do in the world than surf!!

    how'd everyone else make out?
    post pics if you got em, and tell your stories. how were the breaks you were at/sandbars?

    I swear I was going to start the same thread haha. But I know right I made a trip down from UD, tore a ligament in my right knee yesterday so I had to bodyboard . Sad but I still got pitted and the glassiness and the pink and purple water from the sunset backdrop. And you looked over at the point and there was this awesome haze there. Yeah man that light westerly wind stood those waves up just that little extra, it was perfect. Haven't been out since Bill because of school and work, but this was a great day!

    Even if I was a cripple

    sunday- joined 10+ early birds at dawn for 3 hours.solid head high sets with bigger ones coming thru' once in a while. Got a few before it got way too crowded-3 guys to a wave and so on.....ended up going two piers south defitinely less crowded and more spread out. finally saw some rights coming in and got a bomb that changed my perspective on my own surfing-turns out i can do it!! it felt so good to stomp my feet at the bottom turn and pump(for my life) came out the back laughing at everything soooo high. At hour 5 my shoulders locked up so i headed in on a nice left that decided to close out on me when i wasnt looking but thats ok, i was still laughing.


    Monday- woke up at 8 with a headache from the beer drinking, checked it down the street,and went out to chest to head high waves which quickly got rid of my headache. or maybe it was the sun, or the beautiful weather, or the fact i was solo choosing waves. ate an awesome breakfast thinking about taking the longboard out for the afternoon.

    I hope everyone had so much fun this weekend of grand waves. stay positive and healthy for wind,tides,and swells will come together again soon for us to enjoy.

    PS-post pics if you got em'!

    I've been down in FL riding the Ida swell everyday since last Thu afternoon. Had to wear a spring suit the first two days but was trunking it by Saturday as the air temps finally rose above the mid-60s. A friend who used to live in Annapolis/OCMd broke his board on the paddle-out on Saturday - that should give you an idea how the waves were that day. Had some great fun this morning, too, but was back in the spring suit again during the early hours.

    I hope we here in the Mid Atlantic are supposed to feel sympathy that had to wear the spring suit!

    Thumbs up

    Went out I picked out my wife from the hospital and had someone at home to watch her for a bit.


    Loaded of my landrover and headed to cape may . I checked it at a few spots but Head Quarters looked the best. Suited up around 2pm into some waist to chest clean surf . Its was closing out by the rocks but is you sat about 2 yards away they were pealing a nice long line. As the day went on it got a bit bigger about head high as the tide came in.

    I got off so nice noserides and got covered up on a nice head high wave . I was scrunched down a bit but I popped out the other side .

    There wasnt alot of people out either for the most part . Just 4 of us then towards the evening like 15 people just came out of no where.

    I got a nice over head wave towards the end of the even . It came out of no where and just jacked up as the wind picked up. I droped in did and bottome turn and headed the lip of the wave and I walked to the nose . Man that wave was my best one of the day . It maintained speed and peal real long and clean . It felt like I rode it for a the length of 2 football feild the paddle back was so long

    The veiw of the beach was nice too. a bunch of chics were chilling at the beging of the rocks and 2 of them venture out by them selves sitting on the rock and started making out and grabing each other asses

    definatly a awsome end to a crazy weekend

    5th st had this gnarly rip that looked like a mini version of one of those Oz mysto waves that sucks up and folds over on itself and doesn't peel or break cleanly just dumps hard into 3 ft of water. Only a few heads bobbing in the lower streets in OC. Rode for an hour then had to work!
