    Surfed a spot tucked away from the wind this morning. Couple of local notables in the water filming. Ton of current and a lot of work for a little reward. Only had one real good ride the rest were duds. Wore my 5mil for the first time but was wishing I was in my 4/3. Was hot and paddling in a 5mil sucks more and more the older I get.

    Went north of the city today and man, I wish I went yesterday. So much wind, although at least it was offshore I guess? Just a chilly time with occasionally outsized sets but whatever, it's surfing so I had fun.

    Did a lot of surfing this weekend. So enjoyable to still be in trunk and a rashy.
    Off shore all weekend with a waist high consistent wave. Surfed near a spot where they had sky divers constantly landing on the beach in Santa suites no less. The thing about offshore winds is all the delicious smells wafting to the break makes you hungry.

    Number 2 son paddles out last week in flatness to film the sun coming up . Its less than a foot and he is filming with his go pro as he is stroking down the beach . He catches a rouge set , drops it and in clear crystal water its gone . Yesterday a buddys gal finds it in Monmouth Beach which is 6 miles from where we live .

    had a business trip all last week, flight delayed on way back - stuck in ATL. waves were coming thru but it was raining. i had a half day of errands to run back in town before i got back to the house. I had to time my session perfectly - i work in logistics, so it'd be a fail if i didn't. rain let off for 2 hrs, maybe less, and i got in it for that late afternoon sess. Immediately took a rip to the dome, put on wetsuite, grabbed board and got into my "shining hour of enlightment". Caught a buncha rides carving in and out close by the pier, all to chest to head hi. was a buncha surf shop guys around, and talked to the one of the owners on the way out - he was frothing like i was. That was the best of the best of the wknd, saturday and sunday sessions were smaller but still sumtin. It was good to be back; Mississippi is what i remember it as

    winds again kinda sucked but at least there were a few gems yesterday (NJ). Took some beatings trying to get a line set with the wind holding the drop until the critical stage. The good was that when you made the drop there was some of the widest shacks i have had in sometime. Had to spot check yesterday too, some spots were deep and mushy and others were shallow af with awsome tubes.

    Nice stories dudes! Wish I had one to offer. Could use a wave.
    Curl, I was there Tuesday. I like that place.
    And it looks like work might keep this dude around the area more in the future.

    1,000,000 views. Far out. Wish I had a story but it is very flat here.
    But I think back to the 1st story I posted. Small clean day. Very cold. Long board waves. Cool to be able to go back and see what I was doing back then. I started this thread on my dad's birthday. He was here then. Gone now.

    Back before I knew who Prank was or where Chiba City is. Then we surfed together when she came up with World B. Had a blast in tiny wind swell. Surfed a session with Slash dog where we were both bullshitting in the impact zone then got cleaned up good. Been in a bunch with Bassmon. We had a good spot pretty much to ourselves for almost a year. How many times did I pull up and he was already out I can't tell you. Dude is a way early riser. Good surfer too.

    Never surfed with Betty but she is in all our heads. Her stories put smiles on my face.
    The rest of you all are good dudes and put together a good read. Not naming everyone cuase I'll leave someone out. You all are part of this.

    Not many of us left here. Some are missed. I consider All Yous dudes that stuck around pals. I'd belly up to the bar with all of yous and sharing waves would be all time. I'm here till they turn up the lights.

    Drink one while you read this.

    Here's to the surfers.

    Happy Holiday to you guys.
    Headed to cocoa beach for surfing santas on the 24th! its a great family oriented surfing atmosphere with lots of drink and good food.

    Its a cool community of surfers who get together to celebrate a good cause and a great time for everyone.

    This is the first year where the swell will be good with offshore and wave prediction is stomach to chest high!

    I hope you all get what you need! Ill post up pics after the event!
