    True that! I never expected my shins to be so tired from trying to balance the thing.

    HAHA, Yep, In all seriousness, the 1st time i took mine to the beach my legs trembled so bad I thought I was in an earthquake. Now I laugh at how bad I was at 1st, it's crazy but once you get the hang of it the learning curve speeds up quite a bit. But you get to a point where you hit a wall and really gotta spend time working on turns and such.

    Probably about as regularly as Florida or anywhere else on this sorry coast.

    I am sure glad I don't surf where you guys do. The SUP surfers I see at my spot are all pretty decent, and the ones who aren't go surf by themselves.

    The only thing a real surfer rides is a 6'2" thruster, white with black fins, black traction, and a black leash. EVERYTHING else is for kooks. :)

    You get waves yes, but not nearly as consistent as the OBX or New Smyrna, that's a fact, not an opinion.

    Yes, everything you say is fact and not opinion. This is the east coast we're talking about here...nowhere is consistent. Unless you mean consistently bad. I don't care where you live, you have to endure multi-week flat spells at some point throughout the year.

    I can agree with most of that, but I will say, even when it's flat everywhere else, you can usually find a 1-2ft wave on the inlet. But you are right, the E. Coast isn't the best, but it's plenty enough for me. Having a flat spell just makes me more hungry and want to surf more, which by time i hit the water i'm just happy to be there.
