    PM before you head out. Can even help with forecast as you get close. September can still be good for the lefts.

    Smaller today. Deep water spot not really breaking. Banzai had a few gems, but was getting. thick crowd (and only got thicker). Wasted 45 minutes checking out spots and returned to the sand. There is a pretty good bend in the beach right now, so there was a crowd when I first looked. 15 is way too many. Paddled out when there was 8, but son there was five, then three of us. Mixed bag of chest to head high. Still plenty fun and variety. A few barrels, a few walls, a few slow wrappers. Finished on a ever so slightly overhead set. Got a nice deep barrel, came out and quickly laid a fun slash, and sort of set up the next section that was maybe chest high, but still kind of hollow. Fun day. More tomorrow.

    Another great day. Smaller again and less consistent, but still super fun waves. Canít believe how good this run has been with decent swell and great conditions. No crowd today. That was nice.

    Pumping on the west coast today. Windy up here till mid week so town is packed. Got a quick session just west of town before the crowd and winds started showing up there.

    Spring storms look like they might break through. Hoping that does good things to break down the spring wind machine.

    Top notch day here in Maine surfing the standard spot with the warmer weather crowds. Plenty of waves for all. Probably top day of the season for me, in terms of quality of waves AND me being on my game. Sometimes I'm the KingoftheKooks (KOK), sometimes the KingoftheBeach (KOB). Varies day to day

    Got a fun two hour window in Newport today from 10 to noon. Slight texture, but it was not bad at that point. I surfed 32nd street which was shoulder high to occasionally head high with decent shape. Nothing epic, but had a few really fun ones that lined up well. Trestles looked fun, but I had far too little time for that. It looks like that weather is coming in tomorrow, but hopefully I will sneak in a session.

    Nice.

    Just down the street. My kid had sinus surgery recently and couldn't go, but snapped pics of his buds.

    Is that shorts?

    Fun days on hold out here. Full on winter storm victory at sea SW winds on it since yesterday. At least the peaks are getting a spring refresh and the garden has a freebe water week.

    Winds swing back NW tonight bringing town and points back on line with still solid amounts of swell in the water. Especially for May. Alas no zero wind storm days with this round.

    Saturday morning was lots of fun at 32nd in Newport. Not too crowded, enough peaks that the crowd was spread out.

    Cowells was fun yesterday. In the midst of a storm cycle, with 8@13ish nw and 2@15ish sw and plenty of wind swell making it all over the place. Only 20 or so out, with a peak shifting 100 yards made for some great surfing. Never stopped moving for the hour we were out with the best rides 300 yards peak to beach. Canít complain about that. And some of the waves even had some size pushing chest high. So much fun having a little face on the log. Non long period made for lots of cut backs, face carved and nose rides.

    Home with the sick boy for the day today. Only had a 1.5 hour window in the last five days. Sure made the most of it. Sand is holding up so well at the cove. Looks like we could have a good bar all summer. Too bad the schools get out soon and the surf schools get packed.

    Newport has been great all month. I have gotten lots of mid-day windows for the last few weeks, which has been really nice. Nothing huge, but at least shoulder high with pretty good shape on most days. The water is finally warming up, it is now in the low 60's. Yesterday was the first day the beach seemed crowded, like summer weekend crowd, but folks in the water were pretty spread out.

    Sweet. Getting in the ocean is the best.

    Forgot how much I love tropical water. In Kauai boating a dear old friend and his family, along with being out here with a bunch of my kidís friendís families. Having a blast. Looks like decent to very solid south swell for 12 out of the 13 days we are here.

    Swells will still be running at home but I might forget how to put on a 4/3 and boots.

    Catching waves in OBX for a week and a half. Small but fun. Supposed to kick up on Saturday just as we leave. Hoping we are here for a few.

    Back home to a cranking swell. Did not forget how to surf in the wetsuit. Great to be back. Was missing our summer stone fruit. That shit is so good.

    Iím not sure I surfed at all between the new year and June (intense work period, epic ski season) but Iíve surfed seven out of the last nine days. Man, it feels good! Itís been fantastic to appreciate the little things after a long break, like how otherworldly it feels to be fleetingly walking on water and watching it curl and stand up in front of you. Even stranger when youíre flowing atop a wave with a bunch of others stationary below watching you ride past. And the way that in good conditions the water goes from mostly silent to the sudden crackling of the lip turning over. As opposed to the steady white noise of ocean beach in summer down the street. (It feels a little strange that Iíve been driving an hour-plus each way to surf when I live seven blocks from the beach, but thatís how it goes I guess).

    It definitely helps that for pretty much the first time I feel reasonably competent, at least when it comes to longboarding. Progression is still so slow but at least Iím not frustrated, and the pace has picked up enough Iím at least aware that Iím improving. Iím not sure how far Iíll get before my body really slows down, but it seems like itíll be a worthwhile journey. I set foot in the ocean once my entire childhood; I feel incredibly fortunate to get to experience this stuff.

    Cranking out there today. Best run of summer south swell in years. Kind of thing that started this thread. Although, less wind would be nicer. Kid and wife hop on a plane mid day Friday, then the swell is pretty much done. Go figure.

    Delta Airlines just announced they are waving all sports equipment fees now, including surfboards. I will finally own and travel with my own boards. Stoked for this. Hope other airlines follow suit.

    ^^^ I just flew Alaska Air and they consider surfboards regular luggage. They didn't even weigh the bag, which was 48# on the way there. My wife has their credit card, so our first bag is free.

    Still some fun south swell out there this morning, but it looks like that run has come to an end. At least the wind swell machine has turned on.

    we're headed to ireland this friday. not a lot of swell in the forecast, but really cold, rainy and windy. (like 10-12įC max in august. if this forecast comes through its actually going to snow in the scottish mountains.)Yay? Now I know why i went to indo all those years.
    It's a war of the mind and we're armed to the teeth.
