Burrr..Cookie. I took a board to the ribs a few weeks ago and it hurts to paddle, so nada for me.
lol...no lie! Winter's full force is here this weekend. Wind Northwest 15-45 mph with higher gusts, today’s high 28 w/wind chills from 7 to 14 degrees. Wasn't too bad a coupla days ago when I surfed though. Was like 42F Air and 45F water. Guess by Southern CA standards that's pretty frigid though. Board to the ribs?! TallDude is down...heal up quick, Matt.

Yes, to be still out there at our age is a win. And those waves are some winners. What beautiful peelers.
No lie on both comments. Thanx, J.

It gets easier when you pass 70. Beautiful waves, you're making me nuts. I've been out of the water for the last week, doing Flourouracil on some pre-cancer face stuff. I look like someone tossed a cup of hot coffee in my face.

How so does it get easier after 70 and guessing I'm driving you nuts cuz your benched? Hope your pre-cancer battle is victorious. I'd like to see a picture of your "Coffee Face"!  :P
 
  Close surfing buddy of mine just passed away after an almost two yr battle with colon cancer. Watching him deteriorate wasn't easy., especially considering we were the same age by a few months. Organized a paddle out for him scheduled for 2/6. About 40 of us are paddling out dead of winter to honor him. He was an amazing dude and I was lucky he tolerated my friendship all these years. "Jack Would Go"! He was hardcore and surfed many winters with me. That 2nd shot of him is from winter 2016. Full rubber.

Been a slow month. At 62 it's glad to be "Still Alive and Well"! Lucked into some gems and had some company from a coupla regs at the local. Tackled the beach break w/the 9'11". Haven't hit the groin in months. Been hiking the beach alot to keep at it so things went well in the surf.
Hope all is well out there!  8)

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.
