    Grommet likes to compete, and I enter because figure there's no sense sitting on the beach all day watching other people surf the main peak!  ;)

    Long drive out to the east end....but hey, quality time in the car with the grommet isnt such a bad thing, either...

  • Sidenote to Grommet-

    Don't forget to pile on at the White Castle the night before and have a big glass of milk and 2 boiled eggs right before you leave.

    Now that'll be quality time with Dad!

  • i plan on going Mr. SeaCliff, however, a 3 1/2 hour drive for garbage surf doesn't sound too fun really. 
    You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.

    Can't make that call from the 17th floor on East 45th St.  :D   I will be talking to some Montauk locals later this afternoon and will post my finding on the contest information line at (212) 661-2661 as soon as is humanly possible.  I am also THINKING about driving out tonight and checking myself.  My gut tells me that Sunday probably won't be significantly beeter than Sat.  The only saving grace is that if it is breaking anywhere it will be breaking at Ditch.

  • Yep...contest went off, pics and results to be up soon - tonight/tomorrow.  ;D

    Really hot, but beautiful day out on the east end. Wind stayed offshore the whole day making for small, clean surf. There were the occasional waist high waves, there was also the occ heat that ran during a flat spell...but that was the exception rather than the rule, it was clean knee for the most part (the pics don't lie!).

    On the upside, grommet made it to the finals in his div, and came in fifth.  ;D
    The downside? He busted a fin off the quad, and had to surf my board in the finals...clean break, looks repairable, but he's more than a little bummed about it.

    Major props to Rick, Mario and the crew for another well run contest, with the biggest thank you going to Jeff Esposito and crew from Espo's for the hospitality: Food and Sandwiches, Ice Tea refilled all day, fruit, and a couple of surfboards (amongst other things) for a raffle - didnt win the surfboards, but I gave it my best shot!   ;)
