    Yeah, I mostly use the live buoy data and read an article or watch a video here and there. The HD cams are available at most spots with the exception of a few, you just have to sit through 30 seconds of a commercial, then 30 seconds of camera time which almost always locks up and spends your 30 seconds lol

    Have been literally teabagged by the south Pacific on these back to back swells but managed to snag that sequence Mitchell posted a picture from as a consolation prize. I try to stay on top of my game, but this trip had been beyond humbling. Serious consequences and multiple water rescues occurring, adding to me taking legit double over head plus sets on the head and getting stuck in a rip on my last wave here and ending up washed on the beach (finally thank god) and coughing up water......I'd call it a score!

    Surfed some nice offshore chunky wedging Head+ surf up in the great state of Maine today. A lot of energy in the water. Some of those sets, hmmm, you were either in the slot or on a trip to davy jones.

    Woke up to 41 degree air temp and a wind chill in the high 30's. Wtf, it's mid May, Kidde is probably getting warmer weather in Alaska. Checked my reg spots and was underwhelmed(2-3 se windswell w/ ne wind, not my favorite set up.) Decided to just suit up right after low tide and paddle out no matter what. I went to the one spot I didn't check, that would be most exposed to the swell and the wind would be offshore. When I walked through the cattails and saw the wave, I was STOKED. Chest high with head high faces on bigger sets, clean, and no one out. I got a solid 3 hours, no one showed up.
    When I got out the terns were having a field day on the bait fish, I have freshwater fished this year but haven't tried saltwater yet.
    Life is goode

    Surfed almost every day for the last week. Completely spent right now.

    Finally got some noteworthy conditions today and had a blast during the evening sesh. Just myself, my buddy and a few locals sharing some chest to shoulder high left-hand peelers. Perfectly groomed offshores and a bunch of very fun rides. A great way to go out.

    I’ll be waking up in 6 hours for shoulder surgery. 5 months no surf... Wish me luck buoys. I’ll probably find myself lurking around here a lot more frequently to keep my stoke alive.

    I’ll be there end of year if I can make it Brother. Can’t afford to miss work right now so I’ll suffer. BUT, it will be a scoping and cleanup with stem cell injections in repaired shoulder and the right one as well to try and counter further deterioration. No replacements so that’s huge for me. I just hope this season is decent to me and I can find time to surf before then lol

    I’m sitting in a bar in Alaska watching my local absolutely going OFF on the cam right now.

    I’d hang myself with shoelaces right now if I wasn’t wearing slip-ons

    Got out this am for the first time in a few weeks (due to injury, travel and fatherly duties).
    Couldn’t have felt better. Warm sun after a week of cold rain. Chest high and offshoure. Finally felt like a real spring day.

    Only a wee bit smaller down here. Took a mental health day. OC in the AM and my spot at noon around low tide. Had it all to myself at my spot, which is the norm from late November till Memorial Day. Sunny day, water was nice. Ate a ham sammich on the beach after the second go round. Good day all around.

    Nah, Bass. Ended up going to AC. Forecast wasn’t firming up enough. I got it kinda fun, but I bet up north had the goods. Feel better brother. Take the medical stuff serious.
