    Damn... wish my local looked like that. All we got were shoulder high mushburgers, with a light onshore breeze. Got a few fun ones on the fish, though. Right about now that's the only thing that makes me feel half normal.

    went for a lunch sess yesterday with a buddy at the Washout. Half clean, half textured session that brought in chest to head hi. Was surprised the leftovers were still churning out some good ones, didn't know if i brought the right board. Was bout 10 or so pplz on it, buddy and I had a block for ourselves. We were pretty stoked tho the conditions were still good, and the 3/2 didn't feel bad at all. had our hour fill of some decent ones, and from the looks of it we could have some more by the end of the week. also to note, a postal key will get you into folly beach - that's it

    Surfed during a rising tide in the afternoon today by Washout. Short period swell, but a waist hi presented itself here n there n gave ya a 50 yard ride. Had a handful before I swam back in. Rocked the 4/3 as temps cooled off here

    went out south of the city today, observed social distancing while paddling out. It was funny because the main parking lots were closed so people all clumped up in a different part of the beach. I parked at a friends house a ways aways from the crowds. Probably could have skipped my hood but erred on the side of warmth. It was ok.

    So, I replied to your post in another message. They haven't been giving you guys a bunch of shit up in Folly? I thought they were kicking people out of there. I have only been on Kiawah a few times in the last couple of weeks and there is obviously no problem there.

    We've been having a pretty lucky run of swell here in Brevard County Florida and Brevard County I believe I've been good to the Surfers. Why we can't park there the beach will you certainly are able to serve walk sit and pretty much do what we want. It seems like everybody's keeping their social distancing hand no problems that I've seen. Hoping to get out today for some thigh maybe waist-high if I'm lucky longboard waves but the weather is so nice I can't see not jumping in the ocean.

    Sorry i missed it last time. Nobody I've seen being kicked off the beach. Now I'm hearing starting today, island residents can "exercise" on beach so def cool if u can get in on an island around here. Surfed 4/20 evening w several folks at the washout. Took the date, rocked trunks n a rashie. Bit nipply, but I'm a big puss w cold so very do-able. Took the new shorty Pepe and got riding a good bit. Stomach hi for most of the evening, hoping it would get bigger. But on that particular day, I was in a shockingly good mood. Content

    Had a fun session with my son this evening. Waves started out junky but steadily improved right up until dark.

    Good info. Thanks. Our lovely mayor and town council usurped McMasters yesterday at 3:00 and continued the closure of all beach parking and public parks on the island. I do have access to beaches within plantations down here because I have family in one and work in another, but it still bothers me. I wrote an email to the mayor last night and cc'ed the town council. First time I have ever done such a thing. I voiced my displeasure with their lack of respect or concern for local citizens and that 95% of beach access on this island is private and being enjoyed by visitors and tourists who are staying within the private gates. I can still take a long walk down to the beach, but I don't feel like lugging a long board that far, not to mention the surf looks shitty anyway. Oh well. I actually got a reply about 30 minutes later and a "thank you for your feedback and your thoughtful email". Totally politic'd me.

    Glad to hear you guys are faring better up in the Holy City...

    Tweaked my neck the other day so it was back behind the camera again this morning. The South Jersey kids were ripping.

    went out south of the city again. Surfing now dictated by parking spots than anything else but it worked out.

    Saw a SUPer out in board shorts and booties and later one with a suite and no booties. Animals.

    Surf was fun but weak. You had to pay attention or the waves just faded away under foot.

    How's it going everyone. Had a really good weekend down here in Cocoa Beach although Saturday was maybe only waist-high but provided endless waves and lots of smiles from everyone. Sunday it dropped off and maybe thigh-high but a great day for the longboard. I spend a lot of the time cross stepping and I finally figured out what side of the board step onto first. So instead of just running up to the nose took my time got that footwork down. How to short run in Sunday morning with a policeman who thought he was going to educate me on illegal parking. I can be quite a sarcastic smart ass and I thought the opportunity was Prime re-gift his educational purpose By informing him we were on private property so you can imagine how the rest of that discussion went lol. Anyway the water's warm skies are clear the winds are offshore I hope you guys are getting yours.

    Got in a nice session in Oceanside this morning. Had to find street parking as all the public lots are still roped off. Waist to shoulder. A little more aggressive wave than I am used to. Still fun and really happy to be back in the water.

    A few years ago my friend and I were out there and he scored a session in well overhead pumping surf....long rights off the huge inlet jetty...that he still raves about. It was a work trip for me and i missed the best of it...although we did score practically empty clean 3-4 foot lower trestles right before dark on that trip which was pretty magic.
