    surfed the other day. waves were chest high and choppy. nice and sunny. surfed with my brother which is always a treat. saw a coyote on my walk down to the waves. then saw a bald eagle molest the shit out of an osprey until the eagle got the fish from the osprey. did one turn that felt cool. good day. still hungry for more. nice pics above. makes me stoked on small east coast frothy days

    Nice pics...your face in that second one is the universal response in that situation! Really like the angle of first one with the wave peeling and the pier in the background.

    Hey hey whats happening? Positively good stuff being posted here. What's up new guy?

    That was fun spring swell, with the weather to boot, that came through this weekend. Saturday turned out way different than I was thinking it was going to be. I thought it would be a little peeling long board wave at most. Stayed home early and hit the beach later in the morning. I chose a spot that would the most long boardy. It was high tide. I expected it be small and mushy. I didn't look. Just grabbed a noserider ,no leash, and walked over the dunes. Found it waist high and bigger. Relentless and walled up. Took some work getting the log trough. I got as close as you get to being outside when a bomb came at of nowhere, whomped me, and took my ride back to dry sand. Sucked so bad. I went and got it, eventually made it out. Got into plenty of waves after. In early, no fade, right into getting five up front. When the wall got long, back to the tail and heave a turn straight. Let it crash and ride the reform all the way to the beach any way you want. The paddle back out was a little cruel and I lost my gear a few more times. But ended up surfing till noon.
    Had some fun in the neighborhood rest of the day. skating with the kids. Bourbons with the wife, lawn care, neighborhood get together a dusk.

    Brought a fish along with the LB for Sunday. Drove up to glassy waist to chest lefts. Fished it for a bit until it got to lully and switched to the LB and moved down to a smaller but lonely peak. Had a blast on both boards. Had some coffee and eggs before a walk at the arboretum and Sunday dinner at Grandma's.

    I'll take it. Hope yous guys get some more waves. Post up when you get a chance.

    Finally got the stick wet, 3 days in a row no less. Monday and yesterday was pretty choppy.
    Yesterday evening after work had some size to it. Few heavy thumpers going off deep outside kept it interesting.
    This morning dropped out but had some clean and fun little LB’ers.

    Oh man, I love paddling for a wave and having your face ripped off and getting blinded by the offshore spray! Ha Ha

    Been in the middle of remodeling my kitchen for the past week (took it down to studs and subfloor), and nursing a groin pull from playing soccer - so I missed the nor-easter swell and a good saturday my friends say the forecasts missed. Been reading here once every few days and see yall caught it good last week - stoked for everybody. Finally got all of my mud work done last night, so all ih ave to do is sand and prime before new cabinets arrive monday. Hopefully forecast holds and there is a clean bump saturday morning as I finally have time to surf againne.

    Please transfer that energy to us, minus winds.
    Surf has sucked around here despite what masshole immigrants think....

    o Barry, don't you know by now that when the surf is pumping on this coast, your coast is dribble? And vice versa?

    Yeah, I gave up going out on days like that. If it does so a bit, not a problem, but when he winds make EVERY surfer completely blind for first 30 seconds on a wave that only lasts for a 10-15 second ride...........
