    Well Mr. Seen, the waves did come up from that low on Saturday, but it sucked. Not worth crossing the GWB and heading south bound on the Garden State Parkway. Though Saturday was the first day NO ONE WAS OUT, which made it a bit better. Plus, I don't know what your thoughts are on sitting in front of The Golden Nugget casino watching people go to a boat show. Friggin Cadbury and his misses got the gambling sickness going on and I had to catch NJ Transit home after I sat outside for two hours. As The Great Brain always said: Gambling is worse than the drink.

    I completely ignored the ocean on Sunday. But don't sweat it, Seldom, someday Jersey will call out to you, and you will heed its call.

    OCNJ guy: Yeah, yesterday was right, huh? Oh man, last evening was just so fall lovely out......

    Spicoli: I love Main St. in Worcester. Plus they got hills up there. We don't have any hills around here. I want to surf your area up there, Spicoli. Hey, how come you don't go to New Hammy? New Hammy's the sh!t.

    Oh smack, is that Ralph Fellatio guy still in the NH surf scene? He penned a few New Hammy articles for Surfer/East Coast Surfer(ha, you youngins don't even know aboot East Coast Surfer - the best pull-out edition of any major magazine).....anyways he did a good job writing them things.......captured the essence nicely. I liked that guy. I don't know him, but I liked him.

    Sage, Worcester is like the wild west juxtaposed on east coast urban sprawl. Could be argued as the devil incarnate.

    Come up this way anytime sage brah. The packies have lots of Kasser's by the 375 and up. Never said I didn't like Cow Hampshire, I just get a kick out of your love for it and your quest for chasing down Ralph. I charge there periodically and have family on the coast. The Emass breaks are just much closer and less populated. May head to NH next swell as there are more points and seems to hold more size.

    Get up here brah. We can charge 8-10' then raise hell around town on the Carvers. I'm bout to do both since it's in the 80s!!! The girls around here like it weird and there are several single moms. I know you like that.

    Oh man, yesterday was a blast! On the water by 5:00 and out at 7:20. The sets were in the waist to chest range (not DOH cackedinri) but there were a few bombs that came through, especially as it started getting dark (how come that always happens?). Oh man! So much fun! Oh man…

    Got a little close-outish up in NH where I was surfing but there was still a fun wedge or shoulder to be found with some patience and some paddling. Freaking beautiful evening for a surf, too.

    Waves were awesome yesterday. Not sure where you went and looked around, but I got in in NH and MA and had a great time both places. But the golden hour(s) were from about 4-6 and it was fuuuunnn..
    I did have to check more than three spots though. Glad I did too. If I had hopped in at Rye Rocks with those 30 other guys I would have been pissed. the size was not there at the rocks, but in certain spots on Salisbury beach we were really getting the goods.
    By the Way... I was that guy who took out a newbie yesterday. But he didn't get hurt or even close to it. It was so fun to see him struggling and making it look hard. I gave him lots to work on.. he got some good looks down the face of a few but pussed out. He also got tossed a few times. Now he knows that surfing isn't all cake and pixie dust like it appears. "**** is difficult" he said... But he is totally hooked.

    The only difference between yesterday and the infamous day I took my friend out was some momentary wiley wind that took hold of the waves and everyone in them. I was never looking to make my friend struggle and honestly, that's the last thing I would be ok seeing someone do unless I knew they were a seasoned ocean swimmer and even then I'd need to know they knew how to use the board as their PFD. Ain't trying to start a schitt storm here or reopen an old crusty can of worms. However, a handful of cats in the lineup yesterday were surprised at how they were struggling through sets to get out back. I'd go so far as to say I'm glad NONE of those in the water yesterday were noobs as there was definitely enough juice for someone to get in trouble if they lacked ocean survival skill.

    Unless someone's on a 10ft LB and catching short rides in meaningless mush, I don't see how anyone could try surfing and think it's very easy. Even then, it would be a false opinion that they'd think much differently about next time they came out with any size or chop.

    At any rate, glad yet another NE cat scored.

    Crusty can of worms opened. Your buddy almost drowned, his did not. He made a judgement call you did too, ended different didn't it? Now eat your crusty worms 40 yr old grommet!!

    Emass what spots did you scope? Some of the beachbreaks were pushing 4-6 ft where I was and clean as a moth ear fawker. Don't worry about closeouts bro, you gotta be quick if you wanna hit that lip. Makes you a better surfer.

    Early 30s and my current edition would run circles against your best early 20s version bruddah, downshift a bit there.

    At no point did I wish struggle or anything short of stoke upon my brah. Clearly two different judgment calls if making your buddy sweat a hard one is an intention at all. Different outcomes, certainly. Different conditions existed that day, similar to yesterday with the addition of surprise sideshore gusts a few dozen miles per hour.

    Stick to your cookie jar Broseffy.

    I love the closeouts mang. They do make you better. It is all about the early jump on them and I moved to my feet on that sucka faster than when my father used to come at me with a belt in small kid time. Thought I had it and I did get basically the whole drop but then that fat lip spit too far ahead. Either that or I went too much DTL and not enough out in the flats. Probably what happened since I did grab a rail on part of the drop. A longer oblique carve wouldve suited me better but I didn't have all sorts of planning time once it was jackingd up a couple floors.

    Schitt was mad fun and I'll take those anytime. Just don't like it closing when it doesn't appear to be so. One thing I definitely learned from watching the Hurley Pro live is just how good those cats are at identifying the fate of oncoming waves based on their shape at certain points. I'm sure I'll reach a point where I can see closeouts coming most of the time. Until then I'll just have to eat up!!!
