  • I really thought we would get more swell from a hurricane parked 500-1000 miles off our coast....i know the storm was small, heading the wrong direction blah blah blah....still thought we would have gotten more push out of this

    a little new respect for the nasty cast...the whole week i was looking at it thinking it was way undercalled as in forecast size but in the end it was pretty much right on..good job

    as for irene i think we got kind of sunked fom this little bitch....good waves yesterday but its fading out of existence now and the hype begins  for the next one....

    hope everyone got some...

    Irene was very, very good to Kurt.

    I actually think Irene's hot for Kurt, she kept showing him everything she had. And to Kurt's credit, he kept taking everything she was giving.  ;)

  • Were you out yesterday? I surfed sunrise to sunset and had 420 amazing waves. Some real, real sweet ones came through LB. Yesterday was awesome. One of my waves was one of my best ever. A super long right that I got on the LEFT side of the jetty and then flew past the jetty rode faaaarrrr down into the next beach.

    Think about how many days we had waves. We had waves from Wednesday until yesterday. That's six days. I didn't make it out today, but I'm sure there was still something out there.

    I surfed from Thursday until yesterday. HOw often do I get to surf 5 days in a row? only on vacation usually.

  • I would like to think of Irene as a weekend fling. You know that girl you met on the beach visiting her grandparents. She might have been a little chubby but she new how use it. I'm not a chubby chaser but, If you've never experience an over sized Hoover your missing out on one of the greatest gifts a man can have.
    Trust in the board.

  • All of you count your blessings......I watched Irene since she was a tiny little depression......I waited, and waited.....then had to travel to Montreal last week---I felt safe she wasn't gonna pop up for a little while.....I get back late, get hammered with ridiculous TDR duties.....and I missed her sweet sweet loving........

    all of you get ready:  I'm spending the week of Aug 20-27 backpacking in the mountains-----you should get an epic epic swell

  • jscottk...i'm not sure but i think your calling me ungrateful. that would be understandable.  i knew some people might take my statements that way. that's why i prefaced the subject "not to be ungrateful but...."

    sorry to hear about your back....i have a fully blown disc myself at the L5 (lowest part of your back)....if I were you I would probably be saying pppphhttt myself.

    That all being said I'm sticking to my guns on this one.  We got some great waves yesterday.  I had my fair share.  Best waves of the summer for me and maybe of the year since I haven't really been getting in as much as i liked since Jan.  Irene was still a bit of a dissapointment for me.  Thought we would have a bigger swell at its peak, a more powerful swell and a swell that lasted longer than it did.

    sorry just the way i feel.

    hope the back feels better.  try stretching those hamstrings if you can.
