Was yesterday a western LI "Top 10" surf day for 2015?

  • Alright - I know what you're thinking: Yesterday was fun, but c'mon - top 10? That's crazy. Maybe not so much - hear me out on this:


    What makes for a top 10 day?


    Offshore (or v.light onshore) and clean for multiple hours? Check.
    Warm water and nice weather? Check.
    Decent swell angle? Check.
    Plenty of lefts and rights? Check.
    Easy entry and make-able sections? Check.
    Enough swell to push through the high tide? Check.
    Head high to overhead? No check. (Oh well.)


    OK - so it's wasn't the biggest swell of the year, not by a long stretch - and maybe it wasn't that good where you were, so I'm sure this is a "spot specific" ranking - so yeah, it's never making 2015's 'Top 5" (hopefully LOL) - but at least for me and where I was, yesterday was damn fun. And from what I hear, Saturday in Jersey was much the same. Will we have 10 other days more fun than yesterday? I doubt it, but we can always hope.  ;D


    Well - wherever you rank yesterday or Saturday in Jersey, I hope you scored. Now let's bring on some tropical juice and see if we can't make me forget all about yesterday.  ;D ;D ;D

    Agreed. I took a shortboard and a log ... opted for the log and had a blast.

  • you totally left off how epic gem mint of a day it was, bikini factor very high, very few clouds,  no wind, not too too hot, and long beach looking like the caribbean for a day.  Just beautiful perfect out.  and to be able to grab your board at any time (high or low tide) and get a session in, then back to the beach chair, then go again while the wife and kid chill, with low tide falling smack in the middle of play time..

    one of the top ten days indeed.

  • Top 10, no... But as good as you can expect for the most part at this time of year. AND coming after a day that was shifty, windy, sloppy and crushy? Icing on the cake. I did a visibility check a bit outside while between sets. I could see some fishies swimming around near the bottom so I went for a look. Popped of the leash, dove down, and to clearly see down to the bottom in 10-12 feet of water was pretty good. Not quite Carib like, but I'll take it. What made it nice was the 9am clear out of standups on the peak where I was. Bit of a wait around while they picked off the easier roll-in take offs and I had to sit a bit further inside and pick off the wider ones that were missed. Once the whistle blew, had it all to me!

  • One person who looks at the world slightly less optimistically than I do said to me, "Top 10? How can it be top 10 when we don't get 10 good days a year around here."   ::) ::) ::)

  • If onefin's salute was because he didn't get out then I second it. Was hopeful for this midweek bump but now loosing faith.

    Glad you guys and gals scored.

    Beautiful day in the country though....
