SUP General / Equinox Session Under The Conjunction
« on: December 22, 2020, 07:32:48 AM »
Caught a nice view of the Great Conjunction here in New Jersey. A few good waves and a new cat too!

What is the great conjunction 2020?
Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions happen every 20 years; the last one was in the year 2000. But these conjunctions aren't all created equal. The 2020 great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn will be the closest since 1623 and the closest observable since 1226!

First winter storm here in the North East had me hustling for some bombs! My friends weather station clocked the highest gust at 72.9 and rainfall at 2.85” last night. Today was 32F Air, 45F Water, 15-20 mph offshores, sunshine early on but then cloud cover for the afternoon.  Managed to make all my drops. Can't say as much for the proners today. Probably a 25% success rate for those guys. Gotta hand it to em. It was tough out there today.

Sessions / December Warmth
« on: December 14, 2020, 09:03:40 AM »
Light offshores, full sun, 50F water, and 65F air (which is very warm for December here in new Jersey) had quite a few on it yesterday (12/13/2020) taking advantage of the unusually warm conditions. Went with my 4/3 Xterra full, 3mil Xcel boots and five finger glovies, no hood. Took a couple on the head and endured a coupla minor ice cream headaches. All that looks to change by the weekend as the forecast has us enduring a major nor-easter with the possibility of snow!

Late to the game...looked like solid swell and clean conditions for you! Good you stepped up. No video? Helluva start to winter. We've had some kickin storms here in the Northeast. Yea, lockdown? I'm feel lucky to not have to experience that.

Oki's on it! Nice surfing and stoked for you getting it glassy. Nice new sup too. New board = new stoke. GL w/it. That water color is truly intoxicating. Very similar to my new cat's eyes.

lmao!! There're a couple of SOLOSHOT-ers in my area. They are definitely cool and unique cameras! In my Teddy video you can see someone else's SS setup to the north of mine.

Check it out. Persistence pays. My Epsilon video is now featured on the app.soloshot.com homepage. It's my 48th upload to the edit webpage and I bumped justineakin of Orange County, California. His video "Test Drive" was uploaded 18w ago and has received 9,009 views.
Two years ago my first upload "New Jersey Summer Stoke" was featured and it received 3,331 views.

Curious why you wear surf trunks over your wetsuit.
Here we go with the 'fashion police' thing again....... ;)
Hey, I didn't make fun of his baggies overwear! Was curious if there is a functional purpose to it. I personally try to minimalize gear when heading up to the beach and paddling out.
Let's see-
Board
Paddle
Leash
Surf Cap
Camera(s)
Water
Towel
Phone

Yea, that's enough!  :P

"I cannot get barreled backside on a sup to save my life"...LMAO!!! Hey you made the little barrel at the 02:30 mark. I enjoyed your commentary, very interesting. Also that acoustic guitar was very nice. Curious why you wear surf trunks over your wetsuit.
