    Looks fun now... not very big, but clean and offshore. Winds are building... should be nice and gusty 30mph for my afternoon session. Thinking about wearing goggles.

    Yeah, this winter, actually since October, the winds have been fierce around here. Never seen a year such as this regarding wind storms, one after another with very little calm periods. No snow either....

    That sucks, but at least you could run some windmills to generate power. HAHA

    Yesterday got good but it was 95% dredging lefts (I'm regular) going about 20 mph. I managed a couple of fun corners but it was challenging to say the least. If I had a jet ski or taken a log it would have been all time. The clouds got super cool again though. This morning at first light I took out my mini longboard and had an absolute blast. Every set wave was super long and would peel perfectly for a solid block. I did that about 40 times and saw a lot of dolphins so it's been a good day.

    Probably did some of the best surfing I have ever done, even on a jacked up arm. Got out mid afternoon when the wind was howling offshore and the size had dropped, but there were sets in the shoulder+ range. Some of the sets were reeling down the beach. The water was clear, the air was warm and the crowd was minimal. Rode my monsta box and man I’m I falling in love with that thing. Don’t tell my girl...

    Got a bunch of fun ones and one ride that really sticks out. Took off deep on the peak, two quick high line pumps, bottom turn stall into a head dip, cruise out and then love tap the lip three more times.

    Life is all goode’. Hope the rest of y’all are scoring. Live every day like it means something!

    Ha Ha I was wondering if you would see that. No still haven't had a session on the Rawson, while the water is still under 50 I like to ride my bigger boards.
    Wont be long though, our weather is really starting to warm up
    I will give you a full ride report when I get her wet

    Hey what's happening?

    Looks like you guys been surfing. I hadn't read the stories yet. Been incredibly busy. Been So close to the ocean but couldn't get to the beach. Which will be a country song I'm going to write and send to Nashville. But I wasnt' really missing waves. Been kinda flat here. Maybe a day or two in the last few weeks. But nothing crazy.
    Got it yesterday. Chest to head high beach break. Got a full shack as soon as I got out there. Followed by a sick against the grain right. Rode the fish cause of the high tide but anything would work. Not too many waves for me, friggin kids were just out paddling me, but I got mine. Left when the wind killed it and right back to it.

    Hope yous get some. Keep posting.

    I got Ocean City Maryland good yesterday. NE swell angle, west wind, medium period so the swell was beefy and peaky at the same time. Enough north in the swell to turn on the lefts. It was shallow, so there were quite a few shutting down, but if you got the right wave, there were barrels to harvest.

    My song is "They Call Me The Breeze" by Skynard. Every time (almost) I get to the beach the onshores kick in with the quickness.

    I've been waiting for these!! I was going to shoot down after work, but I sat and watched it dwindle away, so I did yard work. HA

    Was good up here yesterday despite storm force offshores at times. Took out some extra lumber to get into the waves, which was a godsend. Not as big as hoped, but storm was too fast too late to generate a propre fetch. After this Spring we're having, if anyone needs advice on how to take off into a 40 knot head wind, I'm your guy.
