Had been keeping an eye on the forecast and surfline was calling thigh to waist for this morning. There are a couple of guys at the office who surf with me on occasion, and so we started talking this week about meeting up to dawn patrol. So I get up today to go surf for a few hours before work, and checked the top spots in my area that tend to be a bit bigger - but also practically always have a crowd as a result. Ended up picking one of the better breaks in town because of the size, and caught plenty of waves and had a blast, despite the crowds that were there. Head into work, and see one of my coworkers who said he was going to surf...I can tell he didn't paddle out, and ask why. he says that it was too small (knee high) at the north end. I asked him why he didn't just drive the extra five minutes to one of the better breaks that was noticeably bigger (waist high) and surf there. says that he doesn't like surfing crowded breaks, and basically implied if he can't surf decent sized waves with no crowd, he just wont surf. Made me wonder how many of yall will just skip surfing a decent wave if there is a crowd already on it? At what point do you say this isn't worth the hassle?
