    SENC is working, at least parts of it. Surfed several yesterday and couple this morning before work at that spot near WB. Chest high, plus sets... Got a couple roll-ins on set waves that hit the inside bar and went square... really uncrowded too, which is a once or twice a year occurrence at said spot. Hopefully the swell will stick around through tomorrow.

    Got some of the best reeling lefts I've had this year at a specific inlet I shall not disclose. Waist to chest and some shoulder hi waves, but very lully. It was wind protected and semi off-shore, the rain helped keep down the texture. There were some freakin runners. A huge long wall would jack up and just scream, take me. I'm talking set waves that easily went 100 yards+. So many chances to hack, cutback, pump, whatever you wanted to do you could. I felt like I was in a lefty's paradise. Surfed well past sun down with a buddy. Kinda got spooked and called it with my limbs all intact. Stoking on this swell already. Hopefully we have much more to get after in the coming days/hours.

    Got some waist high rides on the LB after work. Lots of current and rips for some reason but it worked out. Nothing special but it was fun enough.

    Good size this morning (bout chest high at my spot) but chunky. Lots of closeouts. Fun drops on the lower-ish tide. Air was a but nipply. My turkey was done. No dolphin raping going on like two weeks ago. Water was poop colored. better than work. I'm off from work again tomorrow so I see leftovers in my future.

    ^ aren't you in OC? It was macking a few towns up from you...

    I got out at sunrise for an hour and there were 2ft overhead+ mutants. Saw lots of ppl get denied, where I was, but I and my buoys made it for a few slabs. Got a cover up on my last wave.

    Came back at 5 and it was so clean. Almost no wind and reeling HH to OH lefts. Got some more awesome rides today on the shortround. Lots of stoke in the water. Got out at sun down and called it a night. Gonna make it for the left overs tmrw am, should be fun.

    Surprised none of the other Jersey cats are posting...forum is dead. Or you are all wiped from some sick waves today.

    Caught a few round noon. More swimming than surfing. Waves decent but couldn't seem to put it all together.

    One town south of OC. It always a bit smaller there but I can get a peak to myself as opposed to surfing head high waves with 50 of Ocean City's finest. There were 6 guys out where I was today. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't crappy. There were some head high set waves but at close to low tide when I was out, they mostly closed out.

    Tuesday might have been the best day of the year for me! Maybe not, but definitely the most memorable day since June or so. Or since I was out in So Cal in late June/early July.

    Unfortunately, I was not able to get in the water today, nor will I be able to tomorrow. Hopefully next week is a great cap off to my Summer, before I have to go back to work for the next 7 or 8 months and barely ever have time to surf!

    Yesterday turned out to be all time up in NoMoCo.

    The wind began to shift around high tide, which made it... interesting for a couple of hours. Overhead, but still wonky with side-offshore wind and LOT of water moving around. Paddling out meant taking a beating and drifting several hundred yards before getting to the outside, then paddling against the current to try to get back into position. A two wave session for me, before I had to leave.

    I came back later around 6pm and it was absolutely going off. Crowded at the spot I checked, but the sets were just bombing and a lot of guys were not taking waves. And many of those who were were completely undergunned... taking off late and either free falling from the lip or catching a rail on what looked like little 5'8s or 5'10s I was riding a 6'4 but wished I had my 6'6. The best guys were getting some of the best waves of the years, though. Light offshore wind had cleaned it up and it was just firing. Biggest and best conditions I've seen in since winter. Unfortunately I didn't get to get in a second session, but it was freakin' incredible.

    This morning was still solid head high with a few plus sets... fast and hollow. I only had an hour in the water, but got some real screamers. I'll try to bail out of work early and get whatever's left.

    Saw the same here as LBCrew saw up north a little... Last night looked great, as long as you got the right wave with the right board... a lot of guys either not going or not making it... it reminded me of a ne winter swell without the rubber...

    This morning was super fun, lefts peeling forever... I didn't even look for any rights. Just a few friends trading waves during sunrise at a secret location... classic times. was head high and a little over until about 630 when the tide started moving, then it was about chest to head. fun times!

    Down here was probably one of the best pre-labor day swells I have ever surfed. 200 yard 6-8 foot summer magic!
