    Thats awesome, he came at the right time. There was a lull between some of the bigger sets but they were there. Looks like another good week coming up.

    Thursday was great, still some energy leftover, went out at dead low, totally kooked the first hour, pearled or got hung up. It was super low, breaking fast and I was logging it. Finally saw an outside set, glad I paddled out deep and got the third wave, it had size and I was off and running. Tide must have changed because they started breaking deeper and I kept picking off super long rights. Too fun, and it wiped me out physically, couldn.t get it together yesterday for anything productive.

    didn't think with the wind that'd it'd be rideable over the wknd. Yesterday tho wasn't too bad, drift n current was but if you planned it out then it was a shot. Midmorning session was ruff tho i was in "high" spirits. Paddled in with a bud in South Washout. Waiting...then got caught on the inside, put down by a couple bombers out of nowhere and put me by the rocks where i brushed my foot. Board ended up hitting me on the lip under all of it. Sat on the beach to check over the damage, which was mostly a small scrape on the foot - lil more of a bleeder but manageable. Paddled back in but couldn't get much going my way. The evening session was more manageable, lil more semi chop. It was in and out of waves; the ones down the line would just crush. Shoulder hi stuff for the most part. This morning was a lil more wind, and just didn't look too appealing. Wind slowly dying out today; better chance of cleanup tomorrow i'd imagine

    Last night right before dark it got pretty good down the street from my house. It was so dark when I took this that the only way to shoot it was as a speed blur. 1/30th F10.

    Here it comes. Manageable spots are packed. One spot with favorable winds and completely open to the swell was big, and building, and not packed. Can't imagine what it will be like at the peak height of this swell, which is supposed to be tomorrow. Props to everyone who paddled out there, lineup was nearly empty by 11 am, except for one boog.

    Fun weekend here. Nothing to write home about, but lots of waves with decent shape and size.

    One another note, Door Dash is evil.

    Me: I want Chinese for dinner.
    Wife: What do you want?
    Me: Just go to Door Dash and hit "Order Again".

    :(

    Hey everyone. I went out Friday after work and surf well past my dinner engagement. Good thing my girlfriend understood and had no problems with it. Got back up early Ford on patrol but so did a few hundred of my closest friends. State for a little while got some fun rides but everybody seemed to be battling for the same waist-high wave. Cracked it up for the morning went home did some yard work make some lunch and headed to an unknown spot and just a few guys out there so I guess it's not that unknown!. The afternoon brought chest-high clean lines lefts and rights nothing epic but super fun for me. We had a big depression set in here in Florida and it's super windy on Shore right now every time I go take a look at the ocean and dream of trying to find a way out cause I find is 9 to 15 foot waves and it looks like Victory at Sea.. made some scallops Saturday night for dinner just seared them and garlic and butter sauce made some fresh vegetables go along with it. Funny how I prefer uncooked vegetables over cooked vegetables maybe it's just because I prefer crunchy over soggy but he'll maybe I'm not doing it right. Really enjoying reading your guys posts I'm looking at all the cool pictures

    Getting veggies just right without being soggy is all about finesse. Most of the time people cook veggies perfectly in the pan, then the veggies over-cook themselves with residual heat after you put them in a bowl.

    For green veggies like broccoli, asparagus, or green beans, you want to remove them from the heat as soon as you start to see them turning bright green. They will finish cooking off the heat. Another thing you can try if you like to steam you veggies is shock them in ice water as soon you take them off the heat.

    The problem to me is obvious. You just aren't southern enough. You have to be a good southern boy to appreciate veggies cooked to the point that they are unrecognizable. :D

    So what you're saying is... Fry everything so its crunchy and the taste becomes unrecognizable once its covered in ranch dressing? Roger that!

    Make sure you bread it first so it will soak up the Ranch!

    sweet take on veggies bouyz with your magic seaweed cumquat wraps . yeeesh. Rising tide put on some size today. Paddled in a lil over an hour ago cuz i figured noon hi tide would kill my spinach-less arms. Took out the 6'4 alchemist and grabbed a few. Very sideshore, would get up to chest, maybe shoulder and current is still strong north to south here on Folly. Walked up Washout twice, would go down 6 blocks in 20 min flat. Best wave of the sess was a collapsing wave to the left. Saw the guy a lil to the left go for it, by the time i peeled around the whitewash scrunched down the guy made a turn and saw me coming. Nicely he stopped right there and let me get to hit the lip, back down the line then a cutback to ride a lil further down to shore. Got pretty cold down here fellas

    Got some really long long long waves (100-150 yards) in the chest hi zone up at Hobe Sound just north of the Bahama shadow last week as Paula skirted way offshore and kicked us back some goodness. Took the 9′ single fin log, which was a good call since the wave had some wobble and the log just gained momentum and cut right thru it. Only about 10 people in 200 yards of lineup. Waves for everyone. Most folks traveled another 15 miles north for head high closeouts. I opted for cruising the wave like a magic carpet ride.

    Then Sunday morning the golden window was here. A huge fetch set up from the NE pointed down here, and the wind field was due to hit Sunday afternoon, the swell beginning to hit overnight Saturday and fill in during the incoming tide Sunday am. The predictions were spot on, and the swell was well OH with 10-12 plus footers on the way way outside shoals at Jupiter Inlet. No wind. I paddled out at the Civic Center on my 6’9″ Kechle step up, and it took me a long time to get outside, and I drifted into Corners, and I got one really good solid 8 foot plus backside left and then took off on another one and didn’t make it, just got pushed in to the impact zone. And got pounded. It was a solid rising ground swell, and very powerful, and I said fuck it, I’m not feeling comfy, so I dodged it towards what was left of the beach, and the incoming shore pound sucked me up and I got sand/water tornadoed on the way in.

    Spent yesterday nursing a tweaked shoulder (couldn't lift right arm over shoulder high) contemplating regulating myself to more old fart conditions. HH (maybe slightly plus) and long lulls max, no more way OH swell with jet skiis towing dudes in. It’s VAS now anyway. Street flooding at high tides. I'm gonna go for a float in the pool. Life is goode. LOL
