    the routine of hitting the skate park, watching surf movies, fixing up my boards, isn't working anymore...this flat spell is the longest I can remember

    I got lucky this past weekend with a trip down to Southern NC. I almost didn't even bring my board but I ended u scoring a couple fun sessions. Sunday night was a good surprise - waist to stomach, fast and hollow. Monday morning looked like solid chest high sets but I had to drive back North unfortunately. One of those swells where I never would have known it existed had I not been staying right at the beach. Regardless, the forecast is looking depressing...

    Just got back from PR what a life saver that was. 7 day trip got in the water 6 of them with quality consistent surf. Only day I missed was the day I arrived last Monday it was triple over on set at Wildo a little to big for me :) . Looks like another bomb swell hitting today if you got some dough and time take the trip.

    Whales and all !! But you are right I can't believe how flat it is in Dirty Jersey..

    a thought crossed my mind last weekend on my 5 hour drive to go snowboarding... this coast has a little bit of everything, but it's all half-a55ed.

    I am repairing my wetsuit tonight and watching surf movies. That should help right? Here is to a spring full of warmer water and south swells.

    i think it really just depends where you are surfing. This short period northerly stuff just misses a lot of beaches. I surfed a few consecutive weekends down in OBX that were decent but VB has been dead flat for a WHILE.

    Yeah yyour right dead flat, occasional rideable wind dribble, what sucks is I have ZERO trips south this winter, working 60+ hours a week right now and unless I get swell here at home, I dont have time to drive south. Depressing winter! Winter usually is, but we also usually have waves to make the winter worth while!
    I cant believe we have been blessed with warmish (just made that a word) winter water and warm air temps but its sort of a waste with no surf!

    Not only that, but it's to the point where I only login to the forum to post a facepalm about all the retarded things people post on here.
