    This March could be good. PM me when you're down, if Delray is not breaking Jupiter will be for sure, and if you are lucky, Palm Beach could be Great Again.

    For sure. Ill be out there the 3rd thru 6th. Anyone know of any decent rental shops in that area? Not flying my sticks down. Might even scope Craigslist or other apps and just resell.

    Sometimes Nomad Surf Shop in Briney Breezes (Boynton Beach, on A1A south of Woolbright Rd.) has a decent rental board.

    Going to Kona (and hopefully Kauai) mid August with the wife and kids. Using miles so 2 of us go for free (only way we could pull it off).
    Plan on surfing Kona (banyans?). Plan on renting a log on both big island and hopefully on kauai.

    On a JetBlue flight now to Barbados. Looks like hard onshore out of the east all week. Yes I know I can hit the south shore and also look around. If anyone is feeling magnanimous and knows any spots that can handle strong ene winds, please let me know...I’m more interested in a larger wave than I am hollow

    Just booked my flight to the Hawaiian Islands for this winter...I guess now is a good time to start training. Surfing waist high waves and riding my mt bike isn't enough lol>

    Gonna stay on Oahu and hook up with my bud in Lahaina for an inner island getaway as well.

    I've been running a lot, hitting the bag, and doing push ups / sit ups, yoga, and staying active with bowling, tennis, driving range / golf, shooting hoops, etc., plus I just bought a new dumbbell set, and a huge work out mat to do Insanity / P90x type shit too. I'm determined to get my abs back, and I want to be ready if a cane swell comes through or if I decide to take a trip somewhere. Next I'm getting a new bike, someone stole mine a few years ago off my porch of my last place and I never replaced it.

    ^nice.

    I have a “pre trip regimen”. It does not include getting my abs back lol!

    I have a yoga mat (no joke), exercise bands, dumbbells, and my bike...plus I will swim. Squats, push ups, and the burps (I think that’s what you call them), crunches, and tons of stretching and band work. Not a runner...just ride my bike which isn’t as good but my knee is suspect.

    I will be ready for 4-6’. I have a beefy 6’ 4” Minami and a 7’ pin tail (9’ for south shore antics).

    Strengthening and breathing will be my key focus!!!

    Right on, cutting back on the booz has had a big impact for me too, which isn’t as fun, but it works.

    Really considering a trip with a couple friends right now to Oahu. It has to be in the next 3 weeks. I mean, we have to be back in 3 weeks from now.

    My one friend just got dumped by his fiance (sounds like me 5 years ago!) and was gonna go there for honeymoon in September/October. Thinking about going with him. Can't do it any later than that because I'm going to Asia (not for surf, but might surf while there) at the very end of the month for a week, then I go back to work less than a week after I get back and then I'm pretty much locked down until a week I get off in January.

    I got the money for it, so why the hell not? Can't stand sitting here, chasing down ankle high waves every few days.

    I absolutely can! I mean, I have enough money that I could have spent like 3 weeks there! There still is part of this (so far shitty, depressing and boring!) summer left to salvage, but it's running out.

    Dude, you could easily do a 10 day stealth mission. Hang out on south shore. Eat some fresh fish, surf your brains out, and maybe score really good. Gives you 5 days to plan and 5 days to get home and prep for your work.

    You have been bummed and trying to help your bros (which is righteous) but some Hawaiian air will cure a lot.

    You could go to Ruger market after a sesh and get the best Ahi Poke around, hang out on a beach front lanai and sip a smoothie and maybe meet the girl of your dreams...and surf your brains out.

    Nothing is holding you back but you. Just go for it. Start tonight!

    Like JD said, nobody is stopping you but you. You’ll be glad you did.
