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.

One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"

Oh, yeah? Check out the surf cam at my closest beach (yes, this is the open Atlantic)...

EDIT - look in the upper left corner. It is so close to calm that you can see the reflection of the clouds on the water.

my dad's in vero, and i need to get down there from time to time--and i keep a board there--so i check forecasts and cams, trying to time visits with waves---well, ive been at this for a couple years now, and my takeaway is that there simply arent a lot of waves in FL.

sebastian used to have good waves that would refract off the inlet jetty, so there were waves there when there werent waves elsewhere on e coast of fl---but when they rebuilt the sebastian inlet jetty they ruined the refraction effect.

there is a local movement afoot to restore the original shape of the jetty, with the hope that the refraction effect can be restored

with all the $$ in wavepool tech, one would think there'd be an industry built around jetty design--less for the purpose of protecting shoreline, more for purpose of producing rideable waves

much as municipalities put in skateparks, put in wave-causing jetties................

Looks like you scored some great days.  I live 5min from the beach and seems like I get either ankle high or walls of death.
