Missed it.....looked fun...hopefully Lady Luck will make it up to me in Vegas this weekend.....
Yeah, I hate to sound like some old arse waxing nostalgic aboot the good old days. But really, shoot was better. First of all, youse guys weren't in the water. Ha Ha oh man, that was a good one.
No really, we used to get spurts were it was actually consistent with numerous quality days. Those celebrated days last winter were common. Good winters, back in the mid 80's to mid 90's, we used to get a "Doomsday Swell" every week, almost. We got good swells where even the choppy build-up was good, then the offshore prime day, and a good leftover day..........and the next swell was on The Weather Channel's surface map heading into the Ohio Valley.
Jill Brown would be all, "Cleveland, it looks like snow today and lot's of it. And tomorrow the Northeast will be getting slammed with temperatures well below freezing for the next few days. Could be a big snow producer. " Ya know what it is that I be sayin'"
It happened. It really did. Beach replenishment was rare and the water was dirty. Wet suits weren't as chippy and you felt the pain of winter water temps without the flexibility and comfort y'all have today. Well, you could find plenty of empty jetties in Ocean City even on good days. Try that today.
Ha, maybe that's the problem. Too many people in the water are affecting the weather systems. So, I encourage all y'all(especially in New Jersey) to stop surfing. Thank you. Lets bring back some of the natural order.
Do you think that the massive number of surfers in the water these days is what has caused the ocean temps to rise? Think about it, has nothing to do with global warming. It's all the excessive body heat and urine at our breaks that is jacking up all the weather patterns.
Damn, I'm going to call Al Gore and discuss this a little deeper. Meanwhile you should all stay home and help the environment!
Try to find an empty jetty in OC even on crap days. I bought a longboard so I could surf small empty waves. Not going to happen there.
Im not a full on weather nerd, but it seems the jet stream being far north sends the storms north (New england area) setting NJ up for that SSE angle that is the holy grail in monmouth and ocean county, while in the past the jet stream was dipping more south sending the storms over the OBX setting up the classic E or NE swells that light up CMC and Atlantic county
anyone notice a shift in early 2000's setting more south swells relative to E or NE swells in Jersey..am I talking out my arse on this one, thoughts anyone
I blame it on the kids going from "punk" to emo...and then there are the hipsters...don't even get me started on the hippies. I chase em off the sand with soap on a rope. The water has never been cleaner...
yo yous guys!!! I totally ... totally missed... totally... heard it was the best day of the year as far as perfection. my co-worker keeps telling me about- he got it. that's all he has talked about for the last 2 days lol
so- how was it- on a scale of 1 to 10 for the year???
It was a 10plus sorry but true best day in a long time in the NE!!!!!!
Jeez, MIS-13 if I ignore your utopian society and political discourse, you actually know the real deal. And that's just so rare anymore.
Dude, South swells have completely dominated the scene the last 7 years at least. There was a period where we got absolutely no NE swells. I mean NONE. Hey, that's ok with me. My spot sits on the North side of river, ya dig? But yeah, just some strange stuff. And it wasn't just these northerly tracking storms, it was every swell originating from everywhere. South swell....south swell......south swell.......
The times are certainly strange.
dont hate on me for daring to dream of a better world homie!!!!
I dream of an anarchist world where everyone loves each other as their brother, every jetty works at a wisp of a swell, never mind the direction, and all beginners surfers go to 59th street in OC leaving the best jetties to those in the know
Also, pipeline and rocky point are replicated at hundreds of places around the world, and the swell just appears....
since you said politics, here you go:
The Law demands that we atone;
When we take things that we don't own;
But leaves the lords and ladies fine;
Who take things that are yours and mine...

there were some good snowstorm swells in 2010, but they seems to be like a unicorn, super rare
Around 2007-ish, I had some real good days down at 59th St. One of those times when it's a low tide dump fest of barreling nugs and clean shoulders. One day was really good. Like, really good. One day in 1999 I paddled out there(same damn sandbar conditions back then too) on a February afternoon and forgot to zip my wettie. I was a little high just like Towlie.
2010....ahh one of them winters of cold. The only waves we got where from infrequent snowstorms, but they were pretty good, though. Actually, I forgot aboot the fall of 2010. That sucked real bad too. Killer summer though.
Yeah something's just not right.
And MIS-13, it may surprise you to know that I dislike most of what you do - though our definitions of anarchy are different. But I hold no hope that this world is going to turn into fantasy land. You can't even get people to drive two blocks to a school or firehouse to vote. So any mass social change is a mere fantasy.
I like utopias. I tried to create one in my mind for 18 years. I don't like those who "control" us(besides Mayor Ford of Toronto). But yeah, I'm not willing to risk state prison right now to do anything aboot it.
the best day here in 5-6 months
1) I am not surprised you dont like what I do, its ok
2) our definitions...there is only one definition, the correct one, 'without rulers' >> "no gods, no masters"
3) why bother voting, it's pointless to choose one vain hypocrite over another
4) That Candian Mayor is the funniest thing in a long long time, and perfect example of why bother to vote
Back to the surfing: shame there isnt a legit swell on the radar for yall anytime soon
No I meant I dislike many of the same things that you dislike. I have just come to bow to the two party system and one is much less evil than the other.
I still want our debate, Nov 2014 at Pic-A-Lilli in AC, loser buys wings
how does every thread somehow spin off to some s h i t t y politics debate?
my bad, I caught myself and stopped it. why are you afraid 34th street
Not on the East Coast Brah how bout you stick to Hawaii and leave that lingo there. We make sense up here brah
Measure how high your chest is off the floor. That number is how big a chest high wave is. We do this because it MAKES SENSE instead of having 30 different stories as to why we "take the real size and cut it in half". Surfline was calling for 3-4 foot because it was supposed to be 3-4 feet. It ended up 5-7 where I was.
everyone except people on the east coast who have never traveled or surfed a real wave measure it like that, its like you're still on JV thinking you made the team, congrats, you are mediocre and clueless!
Normally it would be a 7... But for this year it was a 10.
