Wow, you guys ride some big waves. I've barely seen a legitimate 10 foot wave on the east coast. Rideable 10 foot, not victory at sea craziness. But I don't think I use the same scale as the new generations do. No, I'm not on the Hawaiian scale. Just the old way. According to some I may have ridden 15 foot+ I don't know. I'm so confused aboot surfing these days. People calling 3 foot days, 6 foot because when they dropped in on a sloped face the lip was parallel to their head, "Well, I'm six foot tall" A 6 foot wave is not 72 inches. When you call something 1-2 foot, it's not actually 12-24 inches. Get a ruler, nobody rides waves 12 inches tall. That's flat. Well, guys in Florida do, I guess. Hey Now !! And kudos to the guy claiming Gloria. That swell was nuts. Biggest, most groomed waves I've seen in New Jersey besides the winter of 1986-87. I was too green then to surf Gloria. But I was young and dumb enough to hit 86-87. Though, I missed the biggest day, which was good because I would have gone out. I'm no big wave hero. I can't breath. And now a days, I'm just over paddling out in crazy New Jersey beach break. I've been there, paid my dues and realized it's usually not worth it. Most big swells - and I'm talking solid, not the groomed head high day everybody is calling OH - in New Jersey is nothing but duck dives, drifting and chasing corners around. Oh to have a reef and a channel, but then again, that place would be mobbed, so you can't win. Geez, sometimes I wish I was a New Englander, but they talk funny.
