Christmas Break(s)
« on: December 29, 2018, 11:31:02 AM »
A few of us scored some tasty waves right before Christmas this year here in New Jersey. I finally took out The Blade. Hadn't ridden it all year and there was a nice window to give it a go. After about 90 mins I switched up w/The Assassin which is about 15 ltrs more in vol.

Nice cold water walls cookieman.... nothing quite like a good winter session!

I actually like the cold conditions.... I just find it getting miserably harder to surf in a 5mm suit.

Thanks for posting Cookie! They say once you ride a wave it's gone forever but being a few miles south of you I get to re-live my sessions through your videos.

Hoping to see you got some video of today! We got the three December W's; warm,windy and waves!!! The wind was challenging but I took a few home with me to remember. Now I can sit back and hope to re-live it through another Cookie video!

lol..."Cold water walls'', I like that...good title for my next vid! Hearin' ya on the 5mils...for me it's gettin' in and out of 'em that's tough.

Looks fun, love uncrowded days . Another fun one to watch
Funny you should mention uncrowded srf. This morning started out quiet w/only about 6 or so out and by 10:30 there were over 20 on it. Guess the warmish/50F air and relatively light winds helped. Lotta beach goers on it too. Scored a nice shot off a random lady who was shootin' w/an awesome camera.

Tough one today w/the SS. It was really off today. Only got me on my first ride and then outa frame for 2 hrs. Too bad, woulda been some nice footage. Waves were richter today. Quite challenging.

lol...where you at , Sprey? Cool ya got out today. Jerzee Zone!

Ya, Marc... it takes some inner drive to padde out in a cold, brown Atlantic.  The only three people out yesterday (Sat/29 Dec) were SUP'ers. Unlike your conditions, the winds were <10 offshore.  I (we) walk-the-dog on nice days in winter at the Federal Park.  They did a workaround on His Petulance, the access road was left open but there were no facilities.  Campers were even staying there.
