    Scored Uppers today at first light. Got 3 right sets that were freight trains. Just pumping and dodging fools. Snagged a bunch of lefts in between. 6’+ on set with some powahhh. No wind either. Good day of surf!

    No ride report... just another viz report: excellent. 15'-20' in spots. Mostly 8'-12'. Low tide... a bit of wind and current. Lots of big, dumb, out of season blackfish. And lots of fluke...

    ....stinkin' fluke.....

    On the east coast you have to own a longboard. Caught some small but fun longboard waves yesterday. The water was super clear. There were alot of Dolphins and pelicans chasing fish near the sandbar. You could see the ocean floor while cruising down a wave. It felt like I was back on the outer banks.

    I'm glad some of y'all are scoring. I've seen one rideable day in the last month. You can't make any other plans either because it thunderstorms every afternoon due to the 110 degree temps. I hate summer!!!

    Here is my last two surf sessions. The first was on Sunday using a longboard and then last night I did it again on a shortboard. There is no substitute for actually paddling a surfboard. Fall is coming and now is the time to start preparing. Water was bathtub warm last night.

    Paddled out last night about an hour before dark. Waves were about waist high and weak. Was so foggy that I couldn't see the waves coming. Water was incredibly cold.......I'm thinking low 50s. After about 30 frustrating minutes I was so cold that I wasn't functioning. Paddled in without even riding a wave. Was wearing a fresh 3/2 and froze my ass off.

    What's happening? How's the summer? Been a long time since I posted last.
    It's not that I haven't been surfing here and there. Been more like who's been to the beach and brought a longboard. Small waves when I could find them. the water has been so clear and the fish, clams and crabs are all over the place. Spent some time in the mountains too. Good to get away.

    Just got back and had a couple of good sessions the last few days. Last weekend was what summer surf is all about. Friday sunset sesh with the longboard. long bumpy rides of a building windswell until dark. Get out after a few rides and walk back. Chug beers @ the fire pit right on the beach. Go get a few more waves. My kids got a bunch of rides. Some with me on the board with them some just them. We beat the heat and stayed there all night.
    Stayed in place all day Saturday with waves all day. Shorter rides on shorter boards. mostly surfed just to cool off. Honestly just being ten feet away from the water was awful. the kids stayed close to shore riding the current on boogies like they were tubing a river. Longboarded again the next morning. Little and glassy. Surfed through a spearing school. They flew out of the water as I glided through. A nice school of bass right underneath. It was a grateful dead morning.

    Yesterday there was a legit swell around here. Dark and stormy. Big meaty windswell peaks sucking of the rocks at low tide. Waves were breaking way way out there. Long fast rides on the fish. Dropping in straight on the outer peak for speed and just connecting section after section with some groovy turns in between. Had to leave before I was done though and the man ( who seems to be getting more incompetent and frustrating) kept me from getting in another session. But hey waves come waves go. This dude abides.

    as always hoping for more for me and yous

    Where are you located, CJ? Doesn't sound like normal US east coast surfing at this time of year. Big heat wave lately in much of the eastern US

    Hit the beach in RI this weekend, mostly to escape the heat but brought the LB in case. There were some choppy crappe waves to be had, without too much seaweed. Good to paddle around but the surfing was terrible all in all. Fun day for kids to learn - a couple kids have a great time on foamies on the inside which is cool to see.

    Ocean has been 75 plus for weeks now , although I expected a shock of upwelling , it has not happened . Current front looks stationary with a weak low forming , should be a small s push manana
