    Ah, ok, we're talking about two different reefs. I'm talking about Sachuest Point I think it's called, offshore between 2nd and 3rd beaches.

    Yeah, that's even farther but I'd like to see it going off some time.

    Not to derail this thread but that is the one advantage of SUPs which SUPers never seem to take advantage of - the ability to cover a larger area. Start at 2nd, paddle out to one of the points, etc... would be still a lot of paddling but not nearly the same as doing it on LB lying down.

    Got some more surf in the last couple days. Not bad, outside of crowds and the fact that it's August and everyone that's ever even looked at a surfbort is in the ocean on one.

    Got a friend (non-surfing friend) up from Florida for a few days, and just having some fun.

    it was a gnarred out morning at Folly. Double on Rye. lott more punch tho it tended to crash out. it was either pulling up quick after a pigdog down or getting spit out like a ragdoll. chest to head hi. wishdaihada brought a small waverider but it was a great start to a morning to end the week

And even then, I don't mind that they're catching the waves WAY outside and hogging. Just please, pick a peak and stick with it, ok? It's the not-stop up and down the beach that drives me nuts. I'm trying to stay out of your way, and just find a peak to myself, can you just go away?

    So, got enough waves, despite said douche canoes, but today I didn't even try. 2-3' and crowds like yesterday, AND it's a nice day out? F-that...I'll read a book and drink a beer instead. I can wait two more weeks till you all go home when surf season is over.
    If a SUP paddles over from Egypt to poach a set wave that's coming into the peak I'm surfing, then I will, without hesitation, drop in on them.

    The solution to avoiding summer crowds is to move to a location, let's say New Hampshire, where there is no surf, problem solved.

    Well, we didn't know the Wounded Warriors were coming to the beach today. Those guys really do it up with marching, playing the bagpipes in cool Scottish kilts, and their cameraderie and stoke is priceless.

    So we moved down the beach. Today was the day I tried to go without a wheelchair, and good thing because the warriors had all of them.

    With my rescue team at ready, I was stoked that I could do it at all. I have increased my strength to surf on carefully selected waves to 40 minutes.

    Sure, the waves were shin to knee high at best. But, with good friends, glassy turquoise waves, a deserted peak, and tarpon breaching, what could be better!

    Boys, when you see yourself slipping away, it's such a shot of stoke to be able to surf, empty your mind, and connect with the energy of the ocean.

    o betty,

    This is so good to read! Glad you are making it out there and that your condition has improved somewhat. Hopefully things can continue to progress for you. Pulling for you down here. You keep going girl!

    It's crazy to think that I haven't been up to the secret inlet since my birthday two months ago. I figured I'd be up there constantly this summer. But either situations have conspired to prevent me from going or I've managed to find something to surf more locally like happened last weekend. Please say Hi to all the Betties for my wife and I. We miss seeing you guys and the other local regulars. Hopefully we can make it up there before summer winds down.

    Glad to hear Betty! I remember when I broke my ankle (14 years at the end of next month), I hated not being able to get in the water. Finally went in after 6 months or something and while the surf was just whatever, the session was fun because of the excitement of finally being able to get back in the water!

    Wow what a fun DP session! I got in at dead low tide, the first 2hrs it was firing waist high glassy liners one after the other and was building up to stomach / chest high on the good ones. Mostly rights on the SE / ESE swell but there were a few really fun lefts too. It was LB heaven, clean and green! Easy entry and long walls built for nose riding and carving.

    The waves would roll in slow and pickup speed on the inside for a nice little runner section. I sat outside and saw them coming in early and got up to speed, at times I was slowing my paddling down as the wave got close just to make sure I wasn't out running it, this put me in position to drop in as the wave began to pitch and would shoot me down the line to outrun the inside section, many times I was out on the nose crouched and face to face with the wave as I drug a hand then back to the tail for a cutback and rebound off the pocket and then back the other direction.

    Other times as it picked up speed on the inside and jacked up before closing out I would go up top and off the lip to finish in shallow water. The last hour it got slow so I had to wait for a wave but I finally got a gem to finish my sesh. Going for grub now, hope this afternoon / evening is even better so I can ride the M-80 for a change.
