    My favorites too, my buddy is a scalloper on the island, I make sure I connect before the season closes in March, usually try to get 10 pounds or so

    When does the season start? When I make a trip up north I'm going to make a point to try these.

    Down here later season is best but I know the water stays pretty damn cold up there ha

    I think November but could be wrong. I know it ends the last day of March. You can buy them frozen on the Island year round, but are usually over 20 bucks a pound in the off season, right now they are 13 right out of the shanties. They are definitely sweeter than others I've had. If you make it up my way feel free to shoot me a msg.

    Just fyi "socialism" gives you the legal right to access most surf spots.

    as opposed to what, imperialism? expand on your abstract thought.

    when most SoCal beaches were closed to even sand pedestrians for many weeks last spring and summer, that was the result of the CA socialist empire. it wasn’t to a level like that in many other coastal locations nationwide.

    prove your point with backup. as it stands now, you furthered a case against yourself.

    Ever had the Peconic Bay scallops? A close second, but just as expensive. Try them if you ever come across them.

    I haven't but now you have me curious, if I see any at market or on a menu I will def give them a go. Scallops have gotten more popular with local fisherman, the price of squid got so low folks were looking for alternatives.

    I live in one of the most liberal states in the nation, and we have some of the most restrictive beach access laws in the nation. Much is due to tribal land, but the largest portion is at the state level.

    YMMV

    My point is that a lot of beaches, shore access points, boat ramps, are state or town-owned and operated. Thus, open to the public and not private real estate development. Am I missing the concept of that or are you?


    PS- I wore a 6/5/4 yesterday because it was 10 degrees. Hope thats okay by you.

    Booked Puerto Rico. Crossing fingers regarding travelling, testing and the hassles involved. Airline tickets were dirt cheap and rented a killer condo near the marina in Rincon for $90 a day. Condo has free cancellation up until the day before arrival so I feel pretty comfortable about that. Praying for surf. Got kind of skunked down there last winter.

    dude, just heard on the radio that it's looking like ALL flight travel may need covid testing in the future. Fudge

    Just freedive. Stuff your gear in your board bag. Tres Palmas is amazing on a clear, flat day. Like an elkhorn coral forest. Head over to Los Tubos park near Dorado for another deep reef that holds GIGANTIC fish. (And by "deep" I mean 15')

    getting up with the guys tonight to discuss another possible trip in the winter. We got old San Diego credits to burn. Got news my bro and his fam is heading to West Palm Beach mid March, so possibility of surfing there may come into juicy fruition. Places in mind otherwise, include CR, PR (prices are way high for some reason - except out of Orlando), El Salvador, San Diego, St Thomas/St Martin. Hopefully, we find something worthy

    When you get to Liberia do you walk out front and take the bus or do you rent? I've always used the bus system..its super reliable and cheap a.f. gotta use their money though. Where you gonna stay? Airbnb? Any surf location you prefer? What about return covid test?

    since it's 3 of us, we'll likely rent a car. 2 1/2 hr drive to nosara. Buddy coming with told us where to book an airbnb there, he was there bout a year ago. Not sure why he's so desperate to go back to same place, but for the me and the othey guy it's new and we had nicoya on the bucket list. I want to go by Avellanas, Playa Negra, but Playa Guiones is right down there. Not sure if they'll be interested in Witches Rock, but i haven't mapped out all the spots. I just don't think we'll have time to run it down to St THeresa, get in Thursday afternoon for an evening sess and get a Sunday dawn patrol sess before catching a flight that afternoon. I saw something where you can take your own $30 DIY test, but we'll have to check with airline if they'll accept that. Let yall know what we find out
