    We've had nothing but 20 knot onshores and 2 foot slop for almost 3 straight weeks...and the long range fucast doesn't look any better.

    Even on MSW, the new best surfing forecast site.

    except theirs is red, not gray

    Haha, I always seem to take my trips during the summer when I should actually be taking them in the winter when we're getting an inch of rain daily with 20' swells.

    work was making me crazy today. felt like i was slowly dying sitting at the computer. HAD to get wet and the buoy is reading 2' @ 5 seconds. theres one (easily accessible) spot on delmarva that that i know of anyway that can sometimes jack up a rippable waist high peak out of tiny south swell pulses on an incoming tide. its a very fickle spot that hardly anyone checks anymore. if Ben Gravy surfed on Delmarva this area would be his hotspot as there are at least 5 novelty waves within paddling distance.

    low tide was 3:30 and at 4:00 it had a bit of promise. by 5:30 knee high wedges that occasionally pushed close to waist on the wedgy peak, clear warm water. got a nice little summer sesh with 4 friends. very stoked.

    Got out yesterday (after a shizzy month+ of work) in some lumpy, shifty 2-4' on the new 5'10 twin. Second wave I caught was like "this is super squirrely, something is not right". One of my TA hobie keels had fallen out. So that was the end of that and no waves for like the next week. F me. :(

    What if the gray matter is psychological warfare? Every time we gaze at it we get a little crazier. Hopefully answers soon...

    In the mean time, Christmas comes early. Just dropped a new raw edit featuring the City of 23 footers. Check it out in Mozilla or Chrome in 1440 or 4k for best visual.

    Nice work man. Pretty sure the dude at the 18 second mark with the blue/pink bottom is my arch nemesis from my locale.

    tonight was the tits. Just completely unexpected super fun waves. truly walked across the beach expecting knee high weakness. once the tide started in this evening, it was so damn fun. from around 7 p.m, Delmarva:

    wind guru for Assateague is saying w-wnw 15-18 with gusts to 25-28. the wind direction is fine, but considering the swell is short period, that's borderline could get blown down fast.

    yeah it was. We were splitting so many peaks tonight. Im goofy so i'm always on the left, and my bros are reg foot so looking to go right. There were a bunch of waves that came through where we did the last minute paddle around so we could both take off frontside

    Oh man, Assateague. I grew up going there. Old man said OC was for mo’s so it’s the place we went to that we called the beach. That was the first place I began “surfing” in the very early 80s. A kid getting smashed in the shore pound with no guidance except the old man, who happened to be surf fishing right near me, yelling for me to try again and not be a pu$$.
    Man, next time we go up to visit momma-pan, I have to take the fam there for sure

    I've been out quite a few times in the last couple weeks. Probably averaging 3-4 days per week. Nothing amazing, but pretty good for what you'll get in June.

    Water is still real cold here, probably not even 65 yet.

    Lack of forecast available is causing me to not wanna venture too far outta town/beyond Monmouth or south of Seaside Park lately! :D And I just went for the trifecta on mentioning the forecast pages being down haha.

    54D1C2FE-3F28-4AC3-A8F2-55CD27E7B026.jpeg Sitting in the truck waiting for downpour to end as I type ... down in BassMons stomping grounds with my daughter - hoping to share some waves with him and her - on her new bort! She spent the night waxing and finning it and she’s super stoked. Bass made himself a besty for life with this gesture and made the whole trip a success even if we get skunked.
