    Surfed Monmouth County today from 2:30 to sunset. It was a great time. Some big sets rolling thru and barrels everywhere. Who else got out today?

    Wind was a bit heavy for the weak swell when I got out around 3pm... but it seemed to get a bit more pop toward evening. Maybe it was the tide... maybe it was the swell... not sure. But it did get better toward sunset. A few surprising sets actually had some decent size, but for the most part, consistent chest high, clean and hollow.

    My eyes are burning... but it feels good.

    Oh... and I got a good laugh out of the guy with the gopro pointed at himself, who had to make sure his hood was pulled back every time a wave came. The best was when he dropped in on me... if I wasn't wearing lobster claws, i'd have given the finger to the camera over his shoulder.

    Maryland was clean and chest high from 2-5 wind light offshores going to strong off shores. Steep south swell angle so some drift but the amazing thing is how warm it is. I cant believe the water is below 45 and I was just roasting in a 5 ml.

    I agree that the wind was heavy for a weak period swell but it was still fun. The wind was light offshore around 2:30 and picked up at 3. I had fun in that first half hour where you could do some carves with the light offshores. The hard offshores made for some nice barrels. I pulled into a few but never made it out.

    What a nice day though for this time of year. I was just surprised that I saw a ton of people out on Tuesday for knee to waist high but today with some shoulder high sets it was a lot more empty.

    Yeah that water was really nice tonight. It was actually a pleasure to take the suit off in the wind and get cooled down. I swear I almost passed out after getting some food in me after that 3 hour paddle fest. I am so beat!

    Always feels good to be a surfer, but would have felt better if I got to surf today.

    Yea, in MD it was pretty good after that last rainshower. I was in the 3 year old 4/3 and was fine, but my Hyperflex gloves are garbage. Not to bust on the company but that's what they are.

    Was down in Ocean Co. today and got some super fun barrels. Came out of one good one. It's been a few months since I surfed down there. Nice for a change. Wind definitely made it more work. Got real fun right before dark as the tide started to come back up. Angle was really good today. Can't beat this for January.

    Didn't get out, but I get stoked just from reading your posts. Living vicariously through the swell info members haha.
