it was large and in charge this morning boys. Wind offshore with a bit of an east slant to it, 20+, gusting to 40 easy. well overhead, 11 seconds, low tide, super tough to paddle in. Including me and my buddy, there were a grand total of SIX dudes in the water in a one mile stretch trying to scratch into these windy beasts...Any other halfway decent day there would be hundreds

Got one good right. Got chucked on a couple, got rolled by a couple, bounced hard once off the sandbar, my board smashed my shin, and I limped back to the house. Got the blood pumping though, and tomorrow should be way more manageable

Yea looked challenging today. I got stuck on a project and missed it, not all that bummed but it looked like there was some serious potential if the stars aligned.

yesterday late afternoon-dark was :beer:. Town was absolutely classic at the right spots. I couldnt contain my stock, was yelling and hooting.

I knew it and just couldn’t do it. By 5 pm Monday, after a long work day digging out from an 11 day trip, and still being on Irish time, I was exhausted…couldn’t muster for an evening session in that weather lol. We had like 80%+ sunny/dry days in Ireland, only to come home to a raging 55 degree 3 day torrential nor’easter.

There’s a nasty windblown swell hitting Rhode Island. Yesterday my buddy who lent me his whaler was coming by to pick it up cause we’re getting ready to pull the dock for the season. Took the boat to the breachway boat launch to meet him with his truck and trailer. Breachway was madness, while I was circling the channel and waiting for him I watched multiple sets close out across the mouth of the breachway.
Thanks for the report. It's good to get a non-surfer's perspective on the action.

N NJ got skunked on this swell, some small closeouts still breaking but the sanbars are all fooked up from the storm plus the north wind. LI score on this swell?
