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!

Sessions / Clean and Dirty Jerz- 12/17/2020
« on: December 17, 2020, 05:31:12 PM »
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 2.85Ē 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!

Sessions / Local Summer Lives!
« on: November 09, 2020, 05:32:32 AM »
As some of you have already seen from LBsup's "Indian Summer In NJ" post we've had tons of GREAT weather and waves the last coupla days here in New Jersey. Temps in the mid 70s with light/variable winds and mild water temps (relatively, 60F) landing right smack on the weekend made for some great beach going and surfing. The last pic is my brother making fun of me on my 9'11" Ripper!

SOLOSHOT caught all the action again. At the 05:00 mark you'll notice a sup rider "Kayak" paddling his sup. He used to surf a Wave Ski back in the 80s and 90s and switched over to sup around 2010 or so.

Sessions / Hurricane Zeta
« on: October 30, 2020, 09:29:41 PM »
Hard to believe we just broke the record for most hurricanes since 2005(Same year as Katrina, Rita, and Wilma)! Zeta delivered nicely this afternoon w/the typical flooding. Chilly though. Water is now 59F and the air was 45F w/a stiff north wind. First sesh w/the 4/3 full, boots and cap. Coulda used light gloves too (unless you're supthecreek  :P)! Didn't charge the SS the day before so it died pretty quick. Got one ride at least and a photographer I've know since the 80s got a nice shot of me. Micheal Baytoff, he was inducted into the New Jersey Surfing Hall of Fame a few years ago. I attended that induction at The Algonquin Theater in Manasquan. Was a blast.

Sessions / Hurricane Epsilon Swell- Day Three
« on: October 24, 2020, 10:19:26 PM »
Been quite a run of swell. For as crap as 2020 has been with everything not waves, Sept and Oct were sure good for waves here! I have like 200 GB of raw SS footage!

This is a quick edit of the 3rd day action north of the groin. Went quite well for my first time on the 8'0" Assassin quad all year. Especially with around 40 out! Three boards in three days. First day I rode my 9'11" and the second day my 9'3".  LIG

Sessions / Local Summer October Morning
« on: October 12, 2020, 09:09:28 PM »
Taste of summer and fall with the water dipping into the 60s now. Hadn't put a full suit on all summer! Scored this used Rip Curl e-Bomb at a local surf shop tent sale. Only LT suit in the place! Towards the video end I'm chattin' with a surfer that regulars at my local. He's 72! Told me he was skipped over for the Vietnam war cuz he had braces.

Enjoy Zoners! I sure did!  8)

Sessions / September Farewell
« on: October 01, 2020, 10:26:09 PM »
One of those days when you know you're gonna hit it later after work.  Some windy peaks with the cam pulled back against the dunes for wind protection for the last day of September. Local summer is best!

SUP General / Two For Teddy
« on: September 23, 2020, 05:53:59 PM »
Two GOOD days of clean tropical juice under belt. 9/22/ and 9/23 are history! It was so crowded today I almost bailed but like three different people told me there were plenty of waves so I went for it. Yesterday was crowded too but the drift kept the lineup spread out. Today was loooong period groundswell, really groomed out, and super consistent. Hurricane Teddy was spinning directly off our coast. SOLOSHOT racked up 70GB of footage.

Sessions / Day 6?
« on: September 17, 2020, 09:50:25 PM »
I don't know. There were so many in a row. Still a decent pulse (From Paulette?) and my first return to the metal groin in over a year. Quite a few were on it. Over a year since I'd hit it last. Bit of a bump but nice long period rollers coming in consistent. SOLOSHOT nailed it!

Sessions / Bumpy Juice
« on: September 03, 2020, 10:57:33 AM »
Some size and quite challenging yesterday (9/02/2020) here in New Jersey. Some juicy, bombing, bumpy, nuggets in the rough out there had me on my toes. Just the shorebreak took about 8 minutes or so to navigate.
Video is entirely off the SOLOSHOTedit software. I didn't do anything but upload it to the host site. The s/w uses it's algorithms to determine highlights and editing. It seemed to like when I got cleaned up by a set!  :P
