It's 10 degrees in Philly and I'm watching surf videos on you tube. I can't afford a winter surf vacation so I'm California Dreaming for a day at the beach on the Jersey shore when I can go out with a rash guard and board shorts then having some Kensington beers at the house after a shower.

There's no point to this besides a yearning for when it gets warm again even though most ardent surfers don't like summer waves. Maybe I'll go down the basement and scrape the summer wax off my WRV longboard.

Here's to four months ahead when I'm down the shore with the boys jumping some knee-high rippers. I hope that you guys up North Jersey recover from that ***** Sandy to enjoy summer 2013.
