    Hey

    Hey there,

    My name is Chris, I'm 34, I'm an RN and I just got back into bodyboarding after about 7 years.

    I live in southwest Long Island.

    I'm having a great time, but I have no one to bodyboard with, and I hate going alone. A few times I ventured out to some popular surf spots but being a.) a bodyboarder b.) a returnee/beginner and c.) a female in her thirties didn't earn me much friendly conversation in the water. I prefer heading out to my quiet spots.

    Anyone want to be dragged along?

    I'm in Rockaway Beach and your neighbor. Hit me up and we'll go out.

    Mind if I join in? I'm a loner too, and would like to meet some other LI boarders. Have any of you met up for a session yet?

    Hey Johnny,

    How are you? I spoke with Vic, who is very cool. I'm hoping to meet up with him for a sesh when he has some time.

    I'd like to check out Monroe Blvd., I think with the decent swell coming our way this weekend, I'll venture out from the jetty where I normally hang out.

    I haven't been to Lido since........???? College???

    I'm old, remember?

    I ordered some new fins that won't irritate my three-times-ruptured-ligaments-in-my-right-ankle-that-frequently-turns-over-so-I-trip-in-regular-fins-like-a-moron. I do pretty well without them - last weekend I was using a butterfly stroke with my arms to paddle, but I was getting seriously f*&%^$g tired. I hope that they come before Friday!!

    Chris

    Smile : )

    Friday is supposed to be the better day, but the forecasts change so quickly sometimes that I'm not putting my money on anything until tomorrow's forecast. LOL!
