    We've been having a fun little run of swell here in Brevard county fl. Nothing big but for me it was good enough every day for 4 days. Light winds and the swell lined up with the sand bars. 1 spot was better than I remember and the corp just pumped sand there so I was surprised.
    Anyway. Water 70 wind light ..air 84

    Couple of shots of my son and his friends from this afternoon. Waves were wonky. Pictures make it look a lot better than it really was.

    This flat spell has been brutal but gave me a chance to catch up on some ding repair. 9 separate dings on one of my longboards :eek: it was time.

    Also did some experimental repairs on my catch surf foam board. Just a heads up that Flex Seal will melt EPS foam. Oops! Ended up using some leftover caulk from a house project to fill the "ding" and sealed it in with flex seal. Came out pretty nice. I already got my money's worth out of the foamy so we'll see how she holds up.

    Ate a fried calzone last night. Pretty awesome.

    It's been 2.5 weeks since my last surf but it feels like a decade.

    CJ - has the water up your way been super clear last few weeks? Looks like it in those pics. In Delaware and Maryland, the water color/clarity got amazing about three weeks ago and has been since.

    Visibility has been excellent (relatively speaking) up here for about 8 weeks. Best viz of the year is always in the spring. Water's still cold, though... mid 40's. Another few degrees and the fish will be moving into the surf zone.

    Like surf, fishing/spearfishing is a "be there when it's good or miss out" endeavor.

    Vis was awesome here yesterday. I was sitting in 8 feet of water and could make out sand dollars on the bottom. Crystal clear.

    Got some glassy solid waist high surf before the big storm rolled in today. Not too many people out which surprised me.
    Good people in the water today

    Long day yesterday and didn't have time to do anything with my pictures. Here is a cell phone picture of my laptop screen when I pulled the pictures off of the camera.

    yea, we got the goods yesterday. Surfed Washout for several hours in the morning. Switched it up from 6'9 loehr to 6'4 alchemist on sessions. Was chest hi, rare shoulder providing plenty of lines. Got crowded sure, but was able to swim out of those situations most of the time. It felt great not to wear booties, first time this year - minus trip down to florida. Wind picked up on it quick at 10am. Didn't bother with the an evening sess when it looked meh. Packed the LB this morning, bout waist hi soft and sideshore. Nothing to write bout this AM but forecast is bleek so had to gettem when i could

    What's been happening everybody? Quiet here so I'm going to fill up the space with a little surftalk. Still having a nice little run of swell down here and Cocoa Beach Brevard County Florida. It's only about waist-high but certainly enough juice to get you going today's been an object from rest of the week. Anyway read my 7 Foot has a Thruster today and and it comes in a five fin setup just for some clarity. Surf for about 2 hours and now I'm headed home to start putting in an irrigation system.

    We have a little pulse in the water but quite unfavorable winds. Wifey picked up a 7'6 handshaped epoxy egg that I have been itching to try. Might paddle out after work just for the f*** of it.

    Lingering swell still hanging in there this morning... small and clean, but looks fun.

    If only I was retired... instead, I'm just tired.

    Finally had some favorable winds and a little swell in the water this morning. Paddled out on my 9'6 and had a nice little session before work. Water hit 65 this morning so a 2mil short sleeve full suit was plenty to stay warm. Always feels good to hang up the 4/3 and know I won't touch it for 7-8 months.
