    Let's get this straight . When I see a post on FB by a "crew" of surfers about DP I expect to see them @430 am rather than 630-730 . When you pose atleast try to do it right..

    i agree, dawn patrol is at dawn. Preferably in the water before the sun crests the horizon, otherwise its just a morning session

    my favorite dawn patrols are in new england in january. Below zero temps, sky is still dark, not too many critters to worry about, empty if you choose the right place and usually good waves.

    sheesh who wants to wake up that early,i got to get up that early for work I like to sleep on weekends lol,unless its an epic swell which we do not have at the moment.

    funny because I was just lookin at the chart and thinking of a dp,i see 1.6ft and thought will there even be a wave?sometimes there is,most times its not,but I havnt been in the ocean in a minute so id like to just swim around for a few hours if there isn't waves

    Sure, but that's also at around 6:30am right? You're still getting 2 more hours of sleep.

    Yup... DP is "in the water before sunrise," or... civil twilight.
