    stealth wind swell blows up a 4-6 foot 8sec (buoy) E/ENE/NE in 24 hours to produce some fun looking DOO DOO in OCMD today.

    NADA SURF

    My buddy Mad Mike just got back from Nica, got mad barrels in the OH to DOH range. I remember when he was a grom long time ago and took him out at TOH Reef Road during Isabel. He was freaking out. Now he is killing it.

    He sent me pics it looks gnarly with heavy tubes.

    It's cool to see The Stoke keep rolling. Life is goode...

    As blown a forecast as i've seen in ages.

    Forecast even all day today - is 2-3 foot south windswell with sw winds all day
    Conditions - 4-6 foot northeast swell with E winds all day.

    Unexpected head high sloppy conditions. Surfed two sessions in it

    My buddy testing out a 5'7" EPS/Epoxy board i shaped with him in mind. He said its a keeper.

    Yea it was primarily SE swell though it seems...with some background NE mid period. Seems like the models have a hard time picking up those mid period systems that move off the coast then days later produce swell...I think LB is working on an app for that.

    It actually went offshore from VB to Rodanthe for a period today and looked fun!

    Unfortunately I was making a living! Your Stoked on some chunks in mid June!!!

    Speaking of forecasts, does anyone know why the winds aren't populating on the SI forecast graph starting next Wednesday?

    Interesting sesh this evening. Was expecting 2- 4 ft and off shore clean conditions. Found larger surf with onshore winds. Rideable but only the sets were breaking due to the high tide.

    A reggae band started playing at a bar and you could hear the music from the line up. The band was really good and made the inconsistent surf enjoyable.

    The winds completely died around 8pm. The surf smoothed out and the tide dropped a bit. Most people left at this point. Surfed glassy orange waves with only a few other surfers.

    Scored a nice little barrel with a clean exit. At about 820pm a storm front rolled in. A dark storm wall blacked out the remaining sunlight. I continued to surf for 20 minutes and was the last person to exit the water

    Yes it did! I snuck outta work around noon and hit up Croatnam in VB. Forecast was calling for thigh to waist, turn out to be solid waist to chest with the occasional shoulder high set. SW offshores (which the spot i was surfing does well with) kept faces clean, and it was even offering a small barrel off of a couple of the bars. There was enough swell in the water that it kept the crowd fairly spaced out, so I had no problem catching waves - outside of my friend that feels a deep need to paddle for every single wave that I do. surfed for 3 hours and caught more waves than I can count. Super relaxed vibe in the water, plus it's warm. was riding that new keel fish, and had a blast. That little board is so fast. It's pretty much all I've been riding lately.

    Got out yesterday afternoon in some inconsistent high tide 2-4' with onshores making it a little lumpy/choppy. For some reason I selected the 5'8" RNF and while I got some rides I felt a little off my game, like a step behind the waves. It is the least volume board I own...

    What is happening?
    Well yesterday was interesting huh? seems like it lit up for few dudes here. Caught a bunch myself. Went to the same spot as last Thursday thinking it would pretty much be a repeat but it was not the case. The wind went offshore and the high tide had the waves breaking closer to the beach. Made for an insane shore pound with a ton of back wash. You would drop in and it looked great for a second but it was kinda brutal. Got into a thick dark barrel right away, tried ducking out the doogie door only to get clipped in the neck good anyway. Got a little more selective after that. Found a few rampy sections to do stuff on. The back wash made end sections interesting. Surfed until the tide swamped it. There was no dry beach.

    The whole time out there I was thinking of where it might be better. Everyone I talked to that surfed those places said they were thinking the same thing. But everyone said it was better than they thought it was going to be and everyone had fun.

    As always hoping for more. Happy Fathers day to all you Daddy O's.

    Have to second the Guy from Delaware's experience in re the MD fucast.

    Figured, I'll roll out to TPTSNBN & see if Thursday afternoon / evening brings a few chips. Uh, no. Onshore, hard onshore. Decent size, good energy, just wind destroying it. Caught a few but man it was hard work.

    Didn't stay out long. Did do the seafood platter feast at a local spot washed down with copious brews.
    Campfire was so good. More suds.
    Wind rotated, hard west, brought 2 hours of rain at midnight. I waterproofed tent last autumn so it was pretty excellent being dry & looking forward to morning surf.

    This morning. Looked great from afar, was far from great. Even several hours after HT, it wasn't very good. SE swell appeared groomed. Wasn't. W wind (offshore) was pumping 15-20+ knots & that just wasn't helpful.

    Eh, gave up after 3+ hours & a few rides. Brekky @ The Pony. Cruised the 165 miles back home. There will be better days. Still had lots of laughs, all good @ TPTSNBN.

    The wind really beat it down this morning, we were @ 15th street watching this weekend OC air show practice, so kool. Did you see or hear them flying? A P-51 showed up solo, wicked plane, dropped down few hundred feet off the ocean fly overs. Watching the P-51 aerial maneuvers you soon see why the WWII P-51 drivers loved the plane so much ............

    G-Man, could hear the planes practicing in OC. Saw a yuge C130 go booming over Assawoman Bay & South Point - - so amazing. Hoping to see a few fighters zoom & boom our way, but not to be.

    We are on the same page - love me some gorgeous lines on that powerful Mustang - - when I lived in Malibu, an LA owner of a sharp P-51 used to take his Packard Merlin powered gal up the coast & buzz the beaches. Friggin awesome - - and nobody complained!

    So good this morning... chest to head high sets with offshore wind. Every wave a little barrel. At one point... after a really sick one... I said to myself... out loud... "this is CRAZY!" Surfed myself into euphoric exhaustion. Total noodlemind... and body.

    Days like this don't happen often for me.

    Hope a few other swellies got the goods...

    Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there. "Anyone can be a father, but it takes a man to be a dad."

    I made it to the beach several times last week. Never saw any epic conditions, but there were a couple fun days. On Thursday I got some sick shots of my buddies and John Oppito who shapes the local Rozbern bortes. Dude absolutely rips. See figures A, B and C below.
