    All honestly, could be not bad. Could also be really bad. Like i said i been hit before. This was 10 times worse. I was working under the assumption that no one would be flipping breakers so i don't really recall what i was touching. But i do know that this one went through me completly. Heavy chest and breathing for a few hours. Mentally just not there. It wasn't fun. Didn't feel right for about 2 days. That being said i got zapped before and had it just be a little tickle.

    Bass is correct... It could eff you up bad, but it's the amperage that kills you more than the voltage.

    late this afternoon on Delmarva. longer period swell filtering in making some sets really stand up outside. Water seemed to have cooled off a bit. If it was close to 60 a few days ago it was more like 55 today. 3/2 no boots was a chilly deal for me after an hour. Got out of the water and shot a few pics of friends around 6 p.m.

    These were the average sets today... head high and super clean and stayed open forever with a good offshore wind. Then there were the outside sets every 15 minutes that went way bigger - and these were small from what was there this morning.
    And I went straight from work, took my RB fish that’s not a fish, and paddled into and caught the biggest, cleanest waves I’ve ever had success with and I did it all right; steep steep drops without any bobble, smooth bottom turn and then rode the wide open faces, pumped past the closeout sections back into the wave and got several inside sections. I only got 7 waves, but each one was pure quality and probably my best consistent surfing ever. I’d have stayed and caught three times that but I got blown out with all the paddling around with side off winds. Pure stoke

    Finally got out yesterday at The Wall. Went out just at high tide, which made a bit challenging getting in and out of water. Had few head highs, and am finally back to it.
    Now I have health issues to deal with soon, so I best get my self in good shape as I will be out of tilt for a while.

    Sounds like you'll have to really dedicate yourself to surfing as much as possible. Good luck, and have fun!

    No surf for The Kidde for the next two weeks, doing some work in Kenai Alaska.

    Probably check the coast this weekend, plan on checking the surf in Homer while I’m here.

    I’ll post up some pics if there’s anything worth bragging about

    Dawn patrolled again this morning. Picked a different spot that isn't generally overrun with longboarders, and had an absolute blast. There was a solid drift pulling out to sea and north, so you had to work to stay in position, but man - it was fun!!! Solid chest high sets, super glassy, clean & peeling, with the occasional barrel. Crowds weren't bad and for the number of people, every one was super cool. Taking turns, no drop ins, etc. Even the asshat sup guy got the hint after 20 min and moved down the beach. Also lucked into the wave of the day. Head high screamer out of nowhere, offered a small barrel and in the early morning light had that coke bottle green color. Absolutely beautiful, and I just happened to be in the right spot to snag it. Three days of solid chest high+ surf at home and counting (and being able to hit it each day), haven't been this stoked in a long while. Got more waves on tap for tomorrow too!

    Yeah , surfed again today in NC was really fun until SE winds kinda spoiled it, but by then I was bushed. Hitting it again in the AM, I love being retired! Don’t miss out on the mid week swells

    Clean, beautiful waves all day... until I got out of work and the wind went sideshore. Still solid chest to maybe head high on set, but crap conditions and a lot of current. Oh well...
