    Who the **** says you're at the top? Sounds way more like you're the bottom getting double teamed... like it up both ends I see. So STFU and gargle some of that **** you too busy playing around with.

    Im not going to ruin this thread. Got to much respect for peajay. But ill call BS when i see it. So ill say this...

    Experience? Do tell me how much experience i have? You called soul out for not knowing you, yet you act like you know us? 2.5 decades? Ok you got me beat, but by how much? Iv been surfing for most of my life, have traveled on and out of this continent. And will be continuing too. Your a grown man giving people crap for saying bomb. That's the fact here. Then when others stand up for him you act like you know us? I don't know you, but don't get it twisted, you don't know me either. So please don't keep going on about this but go ahead and pm me. I'm curious how much experience i have, and were iv traveled

    Wondering if he's a guy I know who drank way too much beer in his 20s, blew up like a tick to about 300 pounds and hasn't surfed in at least 20 years. This guy stays connected to surfing by trolling surfing message boards and playing Fantasy Surfer.

    And by the way. I mentioned it in a previous post, but Saturday was huge here. Strong 30mph offshore winds. Well overhead. Just about as big as it can get here while still being surfable. The offshores made it pretty damn sketchy. No one was around. No one was paddling out. After checking a few spots i found some other guys who were looking to paddle out. The paddle out was gruesome, although not as bad as i thought. After finally making it out i sat to regain my breath and composure. It was basically not surfable without ski assistance. But there were some corners that were makeable. Paddled into one bomb. What a wave. After that one i got out. Had plans for the day, had already drifted a long long long ways, and like i said, it was basically unsurfable. But i would of been kicking myself if i didn't try.

    Here is a set of pics from one wave. Although this isn't where i paddled out, the spot i went to was slightly more manageable.

    What's happening?

    I was out there Bass. Haven't seen our stretch light up like that for a while. Beat Stella IMO. Traveled into town for an easier paddle out. It was a challenging surf. 2ft over easy with really no taper. The wind kept sweeping you outside then you would paddle too far in leading to late steep drops. You made a few but got smoked on a bunch and it hurt. No going over the top and out, just a doggy door exit and a suit flush. Collect yourself and sprint back out before the next set. They were spaced out just enough you could get back out without a duck dive. Sometimes you just got far enough out to take a few on the head. That was kind of a drag.

    And hey a bomb is a bomb. They don't come in one size. A cherry bomb is small but it's still a bomb right? Don't care how long I've been surfing I'm still going to froth over waist to chest death bombs that explode into shallow water. The kind that shift your hood sideways when you get clobbered. So much fun.

    Who else surfed this weekend?

    Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be crap, but there should be some size. I'm seriously thinking about taking a sponge out at the reef and just goofing off. I had a lot more fun that I expected on the fish in those little 2' waves on Sunday, and while the conditions are going to be victory at sea, it still might be fun on the belly.

    Or not.

    Might be a nice change of pace...

    I didn't get out for stella but it totally beat it from what i saw. I hadn't seen waves like that in a long time. Glad to see you got out there.

    And i truly apologize for being pulled into the exact thing you didn't want going on in this thread. I know what this thread and the group are about. Wanted to apologize to you specifically. Hope to see you out in the water soon! It's been awhile

    Second beach this weekend was hit with a big swell but with around 25-30 knot straight offshores, so whenever I paddled for a wave the wind and spray would hit me in the face and blind me.

    Feel bad for anyone on the gulf that didn't get out this morning. Very fun and clean lines, no wet suite. Only me and one other at one of the go-to spots. On the drive into work, there were two other spots that had about 20 people. Always cracks me up, sure there are a couple spots that work only slightly better, but its all beach break and I hate being in a crowd

    What's up guys? I've been surfing my ass off lately, 5 out of the last 6 days since my last post on the 29th, all have been very fun. It's been so consistent the past few weeks. So many days in the chest - head range, some sets pushing overhead, and a couple smaller days in the waist to chest but mostly clean - perfect conditions each session with today probably being the least clean of all but it was still pretty decent honestly.

    I have been riding the Flashback Fish mostly but have taken the M-80 out some too. Something about that Fish that I love, it's got tons of mileage but rides like brand new.

    I love this time of year when the water is warm enough to trunk it but it's just cool enough to still be refreshing. Calm winds to light offshore and occasionally a light onshore breeze is what we've been gifted with many mornings / evenings.

    The wild life is becoming more active which is always fun and keeps things interesting. The sunrises are picture perfect. The whole vibe makes me think of PR as it's usually about this time of year that we make the trip down, but not this year, possibly for Christmas, we started talking about that possibility last night.

    Surfed about 12 sessions since getting here last Thursday. Heading back north manana.

    It's been fun. HH to well OH on growler sets. As always, Guiones doesn't hold size too well. You're better off playing the growler shuffle game, waiting for the medium sized HH waves that hold up nice & clean.

    About 6 really great sessions, 3 lousy & 3 avg. Mid-tide is best; high is really fat & wide, most guys missing their attempts. Best time of day has been first light, around 0515. Bus pulls up around 730-8. Mid-day also good if you're ok with frying your scalp.

    Wind has been offshore early but always rotates onshore @ 11am-ish. Afternoons have been blown out, knocked down closeout walls of whitewater. Segua time.

    Had a great time, worked on full 'S' carving turns on 9'2 rental. Was just too tired to pack boarts, threw gear in bag & uber'd to DCA last week. Didn't want anything shorter than longboart, due to knee. And, glory be, knee held up great, pain-free. Had terrific lefts & rights, high wave count with new (for me) paddling techniques, just a solid surf trek all 'n all.

    Hot as hades, dusty. Rain expected to commence on Sunday. Massive amount of building going on in Guiones. Didn't hear the howlers as much as usual. Loss of habitat is staggering. Water shortages now, too. And don't drink the water here in February & March. There's so many gringo septic fields now, that the water table is contaminated with feces. You will become ill. The human virus, on its game yet again. A Blue Zone is no mas.

    Oh, and one other thing: SI fucast has been spot-on for northern CR. Wind in particular. Whereas, MSW has been totally wankin' it when it comes to the afternoon wind scenario. Surfline, somewhere in the middle.

    Nothing worth the trip probably for at least a week out. Hopefully that changes but coming off the last run I'm expecting a lull and then another swell.

    Glad you scored bro! Awesome the knee is holding up well, and smart to go with a LB to get your chops back.
