    I been wanting to go to that bsr surf place in Waco.yea gay I know....anyway sent those bitches emails,called a week straight,can never get a hold of.already figured out plane ticket,car rental,other shit to do while in texas.just got no where,dont know if im supposed to make reservations or just show up and hope an hours open?doesnt make sense to me.

    so then my coworker telling me about flipping out on his daughter cause she went surfing alone,she lives in Oregon.they get some legit waves out there lol.plus legal weed,plenty of forests and mountains to explore.hes going in September and was thinking about tagging along.

    the wavepool would've been cool.oregon kinda scares me,thats the pacific nw,thats some serious ocean.he even told me last time he was there the waves were breaking like a 1/4 mile out which is typical and the size of the building we were working on,like 2 -3 stories.im not looking for nothing crazy lol,3-7 ft is ideal for me.the videos hes shown me of his daughter,she got bigger balls then me,definitly a really good surfer.so I been leaning towards Oregon.any thoughts on either area would be appreciated.i was planning on going to texas this month but fukers don't want to respond

    I can’t believe this is even a question. Of course you should go to Oregon vs Texas. You’ll find a wave in your wheel house I’m sure. Do some research of the area. F a wave pool.

    The most popular surfing beach near Portland is Oswald West State Beach, aka Short Sands or "Shorties". It is a summer break which takes south swells and North winds, both of which are in plentiful supply in summer.

    The paddles here are not as long and brutal at a lot of spots in Oregon. Personally, the walk is kinda brutal because it's like a half mile walk through the forest. But the forest is also probably the biggest charm too. Old growth shit. Beach is a small protected cove with a crescent of sand and rock with the usual huge logs strewn about. Honestly, even without surf, it's probably worth a trip.

    good friend with Waco experience really enjoyed his sessions there and wants a repeat. Guaranteed waves, both quality and count.

    You can always schedule a wave pool. Oregon is an experience.

    Surf or no surf, it's Oregon without a doubt.
    I've visited and lived in Texas - the northern and eastern part of the state - as well as the Seattle-Puget Sound area. My sister and my oldest son live in Seattle. He's gone surfing a couple times off Westport and mentioned the long paddles out.
    Despite the seasonally wet weather, I found the PNW with the mountains, evergreen forests, the clean water, fresh air, great sea food, and active outdoor vibe an invigorating place to live and visit.

    Im pretty anti wave pool, but i almost went to Texas too. Wifey wanted to go to some areas around Waco. She is the one who asked about the wave pool, knowing i wouldn't be interested unless i could surf. Did a bit of research and actually got half way excited about going. If im remembering correctly you can only reserve a spot in person. Could be wrong.

    Anyway, if i had to choose it'd be Oregon. Never been but the PNW seems like a real adventure. Real and raw. I really would like to go there. Both have benefits and drawbacks. You'll have a good tone no matter where you go. Keep up in the loop cep!

    No choice; it is OR. A great LB wave near Seaside. If I had to go to TX, it would be for tanker surfing not a wave pool.

    Dated a girl in college that moved out to Oregon after we graduated. I flew out every once in awhile to hang out with her. Dude, def go to Oregon. I was amazed at the quality of surf. I hated putting on the rubber, but there are waves aplenty up there and never a crowd. The dudes here aren't steering you wrong. Plus, factor in the legal weed and amazing hiking trails and it's an easy call bruhder.

    Sounds like Oregon is the call. I've had that on my "someday" list too. Beautiful countryside and challenging waves; how can you go wrong?

    If you do decide on the Texas thing though, I would like to ask a favor on behalf of the Swelluminati….

    Can you stop by and give Austinne a well-aimed knee to the groinal area?

    Thanks in advance and enjoy your trip!

    Im not too sure about either of those spots. I mean the quality and also the possibility of getting skunked at either spot is a real factor.

    Have you considered booking a trip to BELMAR? you cant really get any better consistency, size and quantity. Plus the water is always warm (thanks to the labradors) and they have shark nets.
