Belmar was great today...unfortunately I was not.  It was way bigger then I thought it would be.  Not the easiest waves to figure out.  Most were not great, but some were insanely perfect.  I was undergunned a little bit.  Still had 3 long fast rides that made my day.  I haven't surfed decent waves in soooo long. 

yes.  It was excellent down here in NJ yesterday.

I think people should be wearing ear plugs in the winter so the hood is a non-issue for me.

I know we have some serious bodyboarders lurking around.  I have been sponging a lot as my right shoulder has made surfing not so much fun.  I was wondering what kind of things I should not be doing.  I wonder about things like kicking while on the wave (more so in small surf.)  Another example is how I wasn't putting my hands in the right spots on the board.  Drop knee is another mystery.  What are some other things that you see that make you think "that guy has no clue."   

I crashed badly in Hurricane Bill roughly 10 years ago.  I hit the bottom and didn't think much of it over then not being surprised it hurt.  The problem was that I kept surfing for a few months and things progressively got worse to the point that my shoulder was frozen.  I did not end up getting surgery and physical therapy helped immensely but it took a year to get to the therapy part.  I have scaled back my surfing by quite a bit saving my shoulder for days when it's stomach or more and not windy as all hell.  I have also been body boarding a ton which has grown on me as I have been getting better.  It definitely sucks, but crossing over that recovery threshold requires a lot of wisdom to not learn the hard way like me.  All I needed to do is stay out of the water for a few months and it would have been much less of an issue.

I bought a sponge and it's made summer more interesting/bearable.

I hate to say that my surf time has been nearly annihilated since I moved away from LI and got a real job.  I have a 50 minuted drive to the closest beach and it just doesn't work out.  I can think of at least 15 occasions over the last 2 years where I made the drive only to find slop when I showed up.  Totally killed my drive to drive.   I wish I could live 12 minute away like I did in RVC.  Good times.  Bombing hills has filled a little of the void but it has been a bit of a bummer not surfing several times a week.  On the flip side I do own a house now and have an actual savings account.  Can't have it all.  Get it while you can.

I watched most of it using a google chromecast and didn't have any streaming issues.  It was great!

First day off since mothers day, surfing I will be. In advance, I'm sorry I dropped in on you.

I was feeling this way yesterday.  I had two waves I just had to take.  Both times I felt like the guy behind me was to far back and they had blown a couple waves.  Good times.

I gotta squeeze this in before summer ends!

I would like to buy it.

Any interest in musical instruments??

Lost SDII is my winter bigger day crutch.

zipper came off on my Matuse hoplite 3/2.  Any more success stories with using a local taylor?  Anything special I should tell them?  I will contact Matuse as well to get their repair cost, but if its above a certain point might not be worth it.  $40 +shipping for matuse to fix.  I guess that's worth it if it's going to be done right.
