    Yeah, March may come in with a bang. Looks good for later next week down here. El Nino usually gives us the goods in March.

    Reminds me of back in the day, me and my buddy Wade would surf Singer Island in the morning, then go hit a black BBQ joint on the RR tracks, for the chopped pork sandwich and hush puppies and baked beans. Afternoon sessions had some tasty waves.

    Looking rather sweet on Sunday up here on the Gold Coast, er, ahhh make that the cold coast...
    I hate getting excited for forecasts but I’ve surfed 4 times in 3 months - so this is making me tingle.
    And it’s on a day off too... so now I’m expecting to get hit by falling plane debris or run down by a rabid Pocahontas supporter in a Whole Foods parkinglot

    Welcome to the area bro. You will find that the waves get good up here just like NJ. There is less beach break barrel fest (aside from Cape Cod) but we make up for it with our options and different facing coastlines. I loved living in Boston as a surfer. Equidistance to NH, RI and the Cape. There are also local waves including one that is 15/20 min from dwntn. Hit me up some time if you want any help or advice, happy to share. Im on the south shore now so NH and north shore are often less visited, but RI holds the goods on a S swell and I get most everything else around here. And Barry says NH sucks so you have to believe it's true.

    My only regret for you is that you didn't use me as your real estate agent when you bought in Boston!! If anyone else is moving to or from the area let me know I will help you out. Shameless plug, I know...

    Thanks man. Regarding your regret: We didn’t buy... but if things work out up here presumably will be in a year or two...

    Renting an apartment in south end to start while we learn the area (newton and Washington). I think I know the spot you’re talking about close to downtown, as of now intending to check it out tomorrow (I saw it working on a visit but didn’t have a board with me so haven’t surfed it yet). I’m flexible on time and spot though so PM me if you’re planning to paddle out tomorrow and down to meet up. RI is prob pushing it this weekend for me since I got a lot of unpacking to do but I’m good for anywhere within about an hour of the city.

    Chest high east lines, winds went offshore mid afternoon. Got fun but i'm really getting tired of the cloudy surfs with 40 degree water. From around 3 p.m. Delmarva

    Caught it really fun today shoulder to head range and steady offshores. Water dropped down to 45, which is about as cold as it gets here.

    You'd never know it from the crowds. Kooks were out in full force with plenty of shenanigans like bailing in the peak on top of guys sitting inside. I'd have sworn it was a summer weekend.

    But we've got a groundswell and favorable winds through Tuesday. Snagged some good ones today, and the crowd starts thinning after lunchtime Sunday.

    I'll get mine.

    I ain't surfed in about 5 weeks, since I left Oahu after a week vacation there in late January, which was pretty damn fun. Between work and flat days when I'm off. I'm hoping to go out today, but I'm not sure. Forecast looks good, but I've had this nasty cough for over 2 weeks now. I feel fine, otherwise, but I'm not sure I wanna get in the 38 degree water like this.

    I'm already itching for another trip in the next couple months.

    Pretty much as soon as I got the camera out yesterday the light went to poo and a cold mist started falling.

    At least the air has been warm! We got so hot last session, we were steaming when changing!

    Got decent late afternoon yesterday, but seemed a bit disorganized. Maybe it was the east swell direction... maybe the wind never really fully cleaned it up... maybe it was me. Size was good, though... some overhead peaks and solid head high sets. Lotta lefts.

    This morning was a lot smaller... and a bit wonky with the tide and side-offshore wind direction.

    Today's session was awesome and im so stoked on it. I checked it yesterday morning, looked good but winds were really heavy. Getting into them would of been a son of a beached whale. Decided to wait till afternoon when winds died down but other things came up and i couldn't make it. Point being i was really banking on today being fun. Forecast ws only calling thigh high but i knew it was off. Don't know what it is exactly but i get these feelings when i just know the forecast is off and I'm usually right.

    Pulled up today and it was looking waist high on sets, super clean with light offshores, weird warble to it, but fun looking. Grabbed the 5'8 thruster and got on it. It was bigger than it looked. Consistent waist to belly high with chest high sets. Only me and one other dude out for the first hour. Waves were super rippable but i was not ripping by any means. Our sandbars last year were creating lots of rights, a rare thing here. I got to the point where i only would go on rights. As a result my backhand has felt clumsy. Trying to smooth it out in a 5/4 doesn't help. However, i did get some fun ones and got some nice top turns in here and there.

    As the tide dropped the warble went away. And man. Barrel fest. No big draining barrels. But these really fun small easy playful barrels that offered up a fantastic view and were very makeable. Iv said it before, my barrel riding is lacking. Doesn't barrel much. Well our whole setup feels so foreign now with the recent dredge. Very NJ like where it'll barrel on most tides and sizes. Whole second half of the session was only backhand barrels. I got into this flow like state where things were just clicking. Lip was soft so if you got clamped you could easily bust through it and continue on. Around here, iv never had a session that i would call a barrel fest until today. By the end of the session i felt like my barrel riding definitely came up a notch. Starting to figure this new setup out. Which is great because iv felt pretty out of place ever since the dredge.

    I had a blast and I'm pumped.

    Met up with nJSurfer30 today at Nanny, and as usual, the forecast is ALMOST there but.... it’s just a rule: the next day after a storm, it’s usually really big and messy until you get outside. Wherever that is haha. Well, it was BIG and wonky and short closeouts mixed in with big long makeable rights and steep fast lefts and an outside that kept changing where it was so if you were asleep you got caught by the occasional overhead closeout that suddenly popped up 30 yds behind you.
    After a legit 25 minute WWEstyle paddle out, we got outside and it was glassy and rolly and cool to watch them build and break from behind and after timing a few that looked ready to close out but then rolled underneath us, he caught a really nice, steep right that stayed open for a while and he went all the way to shore. I caught a left that went deep and then closed out so I went right caught the inside build for a fun ride to the foam. Problem was, now the tide was out further and the sets were relentless so now you have a 5 mph side rip along with the incoming breakers to get out 75yds through. I ripped a booty so had to do some curbside repairs while nj battled back out. Second attempt heading back out to him I get pummeled just about out to the break by a big set that hit me, rolled me, wailed me on the top of my head with my 10’ DelRay, and then held me down rolling on the bottom for about 20yds. Got up, and felt nauseous and dizzy. Caught my breath, waded back up beach to spot to paddle out, and got hammered, hit again. I called it for myself when I saw him getting beat up in the break trying to come in. Cold and tired but he was stoked and the one good ride was enough. He’s hooked though, and looking forward to another shot.

    Hahaha sounds familiar! Got a good feeling about this spring man. Hoping to get back up your way. That spot is pretty awesome

    I know right!? I was telling him about that and he remembers the forum discusssion and could see what we were saying. It was legit like that day except the winds were more forgiving and it was a bit smaller but not by much - his ride, he disappeared for a good little bit before I saw him again going right... and a few of the sets that went through while we floated and caught our breath were monsters from behind. A lot of power in them for sure!
    And I was thinking the same about spring. Now you know what to expect, and you have a base of operations, so we can jump around a bit if necessary - I heard point allerton was HUGE in the a.m. And like you saw in NESS, there are spots that work all over. NJSurfer30 was stoked for sure.
