    Glassy long period swell yesterday and again this morning. Florence has been inland for days, so its not coming from her....mystery why the buoy has been reading 3' @ 13 seconds, but the long lines this morning were real.

    First "post-Flo" sesh/s this morning and noontime. Waist high, a bit disorganized with a northward drift. Lots of paddling to stay on station. Water olive green, but it was nice to take advantage of its 80 degree temp.

    Was able to get out for about an hour tonight, mostly in the dark. It was fun, but the water was a bit nasty due to all the rain. Water is still fairly warm.

    We were seeing a lot of E and SE fetch coming off the tail of Flo until yesterday. Unfortunately onshore conditions didn’t play well here. Looks like you guys got some good remenants with good conditions. I imagine that fetch continued to push swell your way through today.

    ...probably some smallish longer period mixing in too. There were multiple lows way out this past week.

    Flo came over to my island yesterday. The wind switched to straight off shore after dinner. The family was all doing their own thing after so I went down with the log. Found glassy sets in the chest high range breaking on a bar with no one on it. Real easy flowing session that was perfect to wash off the work day. As the storm moved off a rainbow came out. Plenty of whale and dolphin around and at the end the sun dipped below the cloud cover. Lately I've been opting to skip dawn paddleouts in favor for the dusk session. My mind and body are much more limber then.

    Been crazy busy this week so i passed on yesterday. Got CR on Monday so trying to make sure my leg is pain free. But dude! I don't know if it was the same one but i saw a crazy rainbow yesterday also at the same time! Good stuff.

    Hope all is well man! Thought i saw you a few times this summer but i was mistaken every time. It's been awhile. Hopefully i see you out there soon!

    You could take me on the honeymoon for a surf buddy. I'm sure that won't be too weird.

    Surf looks good on Thursday. Forget the leg and surf around the rockpile. I'll keep an eye out.

    Waist high junk on the incoming... wind was wrong, but it was still doable. Had fun on the log.

    Some decent waves today at Nantasket. Bumpy but solid waist to chest, consistent, and warm water.

    super fun friday afternoon....clean, waist to chest high...warm and sunny out. Long sesh. shots from around 5 don't do justice to how freaking rippable it was. 3-4 good turns on some waves. 9-21-2018a.jpg 9-21-2018b.jpg

    Yeah, Nantasket was good times from 4 until dark but also funny in that the waves looked big from shore when I got there but were actually kind of soft when you got out. Took me a while to figure out not to paddle for stuff that just wasn't breaking.

    Wicked drift today. Still bath water warm, too bad about dark at 7pm now.

    Super consistent, but did you notice that even those big sets coming in were sucker sets unless you were super deep/late? I lost count of how many genuinely solid looking waves I paddled for and got skunked on... always just a little too slow or too early. Getting caught right on the lip was the norm. Felt like paddling in molasses. Once I got the timing right it was good but by then I was half paddled out. There were a few dudes out there shredding some long rides and a few huge sets that came through - and man was that water awesome!

    Experienced somewhat the same thing here late AM to noon yesterday, but sets mostly waist high...every now and then a little bigger. Heading out for a mid-AM sesh today. After that, the honey-do list...
