Stay out there as long as you can ! Nothing going on out East unless you are i the mountains

lol...wish I could stay out there all winter but budget constraints would have otherwise. Just considered myself lucky to have gotten 10 days in. Made the most of it by hitting spots I missed in 2016.
And I wouldn't exactly say that nothing's happening here on the East Coast surf wise. I scored a PERFECT bluebird day since my return. 55F air and light winds with solid swell setup a looong day in the water for me. Four hrs+. Will admit the low tide beatings when caught inside were a bit frigid in the 40F water though.

My wetsuit used to be black, but I guess I've spent a little too much time surfing the Nuc' break in front of San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station  ::)

lol...I thought about you the other day. Our local paper has an article about nuclear waste and SanO in it. lemmee see if I can relocate it!

I love Zoner meet-ups.... it shows the value of this forum on a personal level, not simply as an information blog.
Yea, thanx Creek. The Standup Zone has definitely had a positive influence on my life. It's been amazing meeting the online users here and then in real life. It's a long list.

Very cool you guys are stoked on my Spot Checkin'! Muchos gracias, amigos! Sometimes I think my vids are just too "Cookie" cutter, no pun intended!
Beautiful Wx. Look forward to your SoCal video chapter 2-?
WhatsSup w/"Wx"?  :P

I've never seen TDude in a wetsuit--it manages to make him look even bigger. Your video convinces me that SanO would be great to foil.
lol...TallDude, tall heart! There are two foilers in my vid. First one is the King's guy and the second in SanoSlatchSup. I would so love to put some time in on a foil there. WAY better break for foiling than my beachies here on LBI.

San O looked near perfect.  The kind of waves sups were designed for (Just dont tell that t the longboarder who you kinda snaked  ;D ;D ;D ;D
lol..that's capobeachboy. He lived right on my street here in NJ in the 70s. I didn't really know him well back then and would always see him quietly walking up to the beach w/the most beautiful Con Butterfly surfboard. Everytime I'd see him would think to myself, "That dude belongs in California". One day he broke that beautiful board in the shorebreak. It had a huge colorful butterfly on the deck. That memory is tattooed to my brain!

you've got the ss3 wired--impressive res on many of the shots
My luck w/that device has been remarkable throughout the yrs.

Fun video cook. was waiting for it. keep'em coming
Gettin' ready to load the next batch. Ramps, Beacon's, and Swamis!

Was a beautiful day but man North County gets it so much better in the winter. Glad you scored Marc ! 
I can only imagine how good it must get there at San O w/a solid OH swell. Those waves must peel off all the way to the pwr plant!

Looks like a great time! Thanks for sharing.  :D
Ur welcome, surfside. Can't say I remember you evr posting on any of my vids. It was indeed a good time. Probably one of the warmest and cleanest days I caught this trip.

Where's the snow? Oh Marc is in California!
lol....we got some here in Jersey now.

I've always felt drawn to Tofino. Kinda like how I felt drawn to Nova Scotia. Cool vids, FRP. I especially enjoyed yours w/the kayaker. Some of the best conditions I've seen you in yet. Nice smooth water for trimmin' it.

I caught some of that. Really was a washing machine out there. Can't even imagine riding one of those tiny sups. Let alone stand on the thing.
7'6"x24'' and about 175 ltrs...no thanx!

Here's a little video I threw together showing my SanO session with Cookie (and others) from my vantage point.
Nice! I was bummed for capoboy! His back! He needs to get back on sup. That prone paddling is the worst for your back...shoulders too! I was lol when you fell off paddling out! Vid looked so good on my 22" HD monitor. Perfect day w/the wind and weather. would be amazing to catch that place OH.

Sweet travel log vid, Creek. Enjoyed that one quite a bit. Looks like the adventure of a lifetime.
Was curious about rinsing boards off after surfing. I see so many people doing that and always I always considered it a waste of water.

Thanx to all the zoners who posted and followed my 2019 California sup trip. Especially want to thank Digger for the parking pass and heater, and also TallDude for the heads up on when to hit San Onofre.
The Standup Zone has truly changed my life and been an awesome inspiration to me. 

I get so much footage and photos on my trip that I spend all my nites downloading and reviewing..... too tired to make anything of it. The next day I get more..... I'm lost in images
Pretty much the same here. Especially w/us only having 10 days we make the most of our time and try not to waste it in front of a computer screen.

I'll be honest, initially I thought your trip was gonna be a bust given the rain and incoming Pacific nastiness but holy cow it looks like you've been scoring in a big time way!!!  Stoked for ya!!!!
Yea, same here. Was really considering myself lucky to have surfed a bunch of good days.

I'm home now having returned safely and will start editing my media. Quite a bit after 10 days but surfercooks tend to do that!
Was lucky to have mild temps and light winds for my return. Was a beautiful spring-like day and we were even treated to a cool halo-moon. took me a while to remember exactly how to connect the Session5 to my phone and navigate settings for Night Mode photos.
