For sure I've noticed that many "surfable" days in the EC would be an empty lineup in California. I understand the dynamics involved. I'm still pretty picky after all these years, but if I were in CR I would probably just nut up and paddle out because a) I'm on vacation, and b) it's warm. Besides, I don't golf...got some other hobbies though. Mitchell, only 30 guys out at Swarmi's? Must've been snowing lol. Can't begin to tell you how many days there was swell, only to waste the entire morning driving from IB to Encinitas...then go home without surfing. All this time I thought it was just me lol.
