I've been advised an introduction thread is the proper decorum around here. I apologize for blindly jumping in the deep end, here's my hello thread. 20 year surfer from the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts, do most of my surfing here and in Rhode Island but have had some incredibly lucky trips in my day. Spend my sessions pretty evenly distributed between the long and shortboard and have been exploring getting something funky like a fish or mini mal to bridge the gap. It's a cliche at this point but surf is life for me. If it's flat I am an avid reader of fiction and love hiking and the outdoors in general. That photo is a little grainy and had to be cropped for privacy issues but that's my favorite wave in New England. A good swell will run for hundreds of yards down the rock reef or pitch a heaving a frame like this. The a frame is a much shorter ride but makes a nicer photo. Somewhat crooked horizon but I just love this photo. What a fun day it was too, early forerunners from a tropical system, light crowds, and perfect shape. And this is the only pic on my phone of me actually riding. I'm no pro but can hack a so-so turn and chase the tube on a lucky day. Have at me. Glad to finally enter the jungle after watching from the forecast page for so many years.
