    I've been warned by my buddy who is an expert foil shredder that it's very dangerous and expensive. The new ones have no foot bindings like the first ones did so the knees are not as vulnerable to getting shredded on a wipeout. But still the foil can mess you up if it hits you in the back after you go head over heels. I'm 59, so I'll take a pass. Just get thicker boarts. LOL

    Barry, the gas powered kite board is something totally different, a new abomination created by the oil companies you proudly own stock in. I hope you are happy

    Damn, that looks like hella fun but I can barely surf on a regular surfboart. There is no way I will ever have the balance to make something like that go.

    Great sunset session last night....had to work till after 4 and wasn't sure there was enough daylight to make it worth suiting up. BUT it was sunny and 55 out, with perfect Delaware wind - light SW. Ending up paddling out at 4:30 - the sunset was spectacular from the lineup with the smooth surface. All those oranges and purples that time of evening...makes the ocean look like oil. Traded weak but clean thigh-waist high waves on the mini simmons with a few friends. long soft rights with 2-3 turns. When we got out of the water it was after 5:30...we're def. gaining daylight over a few weeks ago. Very stoked. Water temps are above average for this time of year and at least 5 degrees above what they have been in mid January most of the past few years. Very noticable...i'm still wearing a hooded 4/3 with 3 mil gloves and was quite comfy even as it got dark.

    Suited up and checked a few spots but tide was already too deep so I went home. With less water there should be a knee- waist high wave out there. Oh well.

    Did the exact same thing, but, our air temps are 33F, water 42F....a cold north wind started up. Went home....pulled a barry.

    Hate admitting this but I haven't surfed since the first week of December. It's just been too big and out of control

    Surfed Sunday and Wednesday am. Switched between the 7ft foamie and 5’2” mini sim. Had a lot of fun catching some lined up little lefts and rights.

    Yesterday the wind was pushing hard offshore and it stood up these perfect little left running peelers. Simmons slipped all over like a bar of soap on a wet floor. Even jammed in a couple turns. Fun times. But damn if it ain’t getting cold...

    Smart surfers know when to go out; more importantly they know when NOT to go out.

    F'ing onshore wind and lack of proper swell angle makes DP321 depressed...

    :(

    So far January has sucked.

    I'm digging the good weather, but lack of big winter storms in the mid-atlantic/northeast = lack of waves down here

    Try 18F degrees with a 25-30MPH wind from Quebec, wind chill= 0*F or so. Even if there were waves, who da puck would go out?? I used to, but not anymore......no sireee, I am done with that poop.

    How smart are we to retire to places like this, when the denizens that were born here spend most of their lives trying to get out?

    I submit to you, gentlemen, that we are truly morons.

    Ah it is what it is. I love it here. And I will die here.

    Well, while cold, we have very little social problems created by morons. So far....
