Tjo...the forecasted stalled out cold front has finally arrived(with spooky accuracy on THAT forecast!!!)...Along with it's associated long fetch of strong NE winds from a near perfectly positioned & strong Hi-Lo pressure gradient...blowing right down the Atlantic Seaboard...almost right in our direction. But the local winds are not supposed to be too bad. The local buoys are slowly ticking up right now. There are small but noticeable north-angled mushy lines on the beachcams. The winds today will be problematic...probably...as the north swell builds and fills in here this afternoon. Tomorrow is looking like a Magic Monday though. The forecast is showing waves ALL WEEK, too...YEEE HAAAAAA!...Summer is officially OVER!

Tjo...There is a narrow corridor through The Bahamas that big storm swells with just the right angle can thread. They hit the Boca Raton/Delray Beach area...and nowhere else. Check this beach cam to see if that happens...or is happening yet. It's a very rare event...http://www.bocasurfcam.com/

Tjo...If you decide to chase this hurricane swell and drive north on Friday(or Saturday)...I would highly recommend 2nd Light/Patrick AFB at the south end of Cocoa Beach...from past experience with similar...but less strong...storm surf conditions. It can handle big storm swells that most other Florida beaches/breaks can't. Get a parking spot there early...They go fast...and it'll likely get crowded by wave-starved desperadoes from everywhere...even the Gulf Coast...It will probably still be a big south-angled swell early Friday...and I bet it will break too fast or close-out everywhere else...including Sebastian Inlet/Spanish House...I'm stayin' put right here. It should be good enough. And it looks like a multiple-day swell now...if the current forecast holds. There is a break at the north end of Stuart Beach that gets very good on big storm swells like this.

I assume you already have seen the signs of an incoming, small(what else is new?!)north swell from that commotion off New England. It's been showing on the W. Bermuda buoy for a few hours. It will probably show on the outer(120nm)Canaveral buoy late today/tonight. Not much to get excited about...but there may be something rideable at least for a couple of days...starting Wed(tomorrow)morning. It'll probably reach Juno Bch...Seems like I saw a forecast of a more local commotion after that...with Bahamas blockage for us.

Your flag remark reminded me of my attitude several months ago...during a spell of frustration with this website. I opened a profile on The Surf Station(St.Augustine, FLA)website and was fully determined and prepared to go there with my online time...instead of here. They have all kinds of great features and links and are always coming up with new stuff. They have an international/worldwide membership...but there is no flags/nationality or ratings crap. I'm sure it fails to compare with MSW in other ways...but my online surfing interests are very simple...and I'm used to doing without. They are much less commercialized and contest oriented...and more of a soul surfer/artsy oriented site.

HEADS UP TJO & MEL!!!...There is now(6:30AM Monday)a small, long-period swell just starting to fill in here...from a weak low that formed off Hatteras days ago and which has drifted southeast to a position east of the northern Bahamas. The swell showing on the outer(120nm)Canaveral buoy is apparently still increasing in size...It's almost up to 5 ft. there now. The local(Ft. Pierce)buoy hasn't passed 2 ft. yet...but I'll bet it does by mid-morning. That is rideable with a 12 second period!!! This swell has some north angle to it...so it will probably reach you in Jupiter/Juno later today and could be longboardable at least. Low tide is 8-ish AM today.

It was better than expected.;^) Surfed a spot a few miles north of Jensen Beach with some of the regulars/friends. The forecasts completely missed this one(MSW included)so it was not crowded. The combination of a low-incoming tide, a nice north angle to the swell and an offshore wind for 3 hours...made it really fun. It was a solid waist to shoulder high...some close to head high...but hollow and machine-like! Standing up and turning felt a little awkward at first... after such a long time NOT surfing...I had to prone out on one bigger barrel during a late, angled take-off. I was side-slipping while trying to stand up AND trying to avoid someone in my way. But I was NOT gonna let that barrel get away!!! I guess I can understand why bodyboarders get SOME thrill out of that...but it's NOT as good as...well, you know.;^)...The water has warmed enough to surf without wetsuits now...and it was especially nice to have some beautiful young female friends of mine join me at a second location/session in their bikinis. Coelocanth is temporarily less miserable now.

You would think after all that strong NNE to NE to E onshore wind over such a long stretch of water for so long a time...and such impressive buoy readings...that there'd be a decent overhead swell here now that the winds have finally swung around to SW. But nooooooo!!!...The strong, swinging-to-south wind field pretty much destroyed our incoming east swell overnight...apparently. The crap-a-palooza that is Florida surfing continues...one season into the next...I am heading out in a few minutes to sample what scraps remain...now that low tide has arrived and the ankle snappers might actually break beyond the beach. What have we done to deserve this abuse?

Got the 'Stuart Beach broh'(MK)eye witness surf report for Monday morning 8-ish heeeyah...A new swell has arrived here...Waist to chest, a bit lumpy, wind light S to SSW...trying to go offshore, tide a bit too high already for SB(Walton Rocks gate locked early AM)& incoming, very sharky(= not worth the risk...yet?...Couple of the hard core regulars paddled out...but came back in after close encounters with jumping sharks). Regular SB crew went to newest secret spot(initials=HB)...near Walton Rocks.

Looks like all Reef Road is getting atm is a small, crappy SE wind-chop/swell...Maybe this latest small north swell wont reach that far south at all(?)...http://www.earthcam.com/usa/florida/palmbeach/...The Jupiter Inlet cam is down atm...The outer Canaveral buoy keeps showing a building, increasingly-longer period swell(as the wind swings around?)...but doesn't show swell direction. The inner Canaveral buoy has decent numbers too...indicating there's a lot more east angle to this north/refracting swell than I thought there'd be...You may be screwed again down there in Jupiter/Juno Beach.

Looks like a short-lived north/refraction* swell on Monday...just a pulse down your way probably...but bigger than up here I'll bet. Bet Reef Road & ORP on Singer Island will be smokin'. The wind is supposed to swing around to offshore by Tuesday...maybe earlier if our luck is good...which usually is NOT the case. Maybe wind wont even be a factor on Monday...Should be light whatever direction it is. Could be picture worthy even.

*refraction: I recall you asked me something about refracting waves & stuff bouncing off the Gulf Stream recently(I'm assuming you weren't JUST trying to goad me out of hibernation...by baiting me with a nerd bait...It ALMOST worked, btw)...which was a commonly misunderstood idea & misconception a lot of us early daze South Florida surfers had for many years. It wasn't until I began really looking at all these weather-related websites(and actually cared)that I began to fully understand the wonderful, perplexing mystery of those rare-occasional north refraction swells we used to get decades ago in Ft. Lauderdale, Dania(Dania Pier...my local back then), Hollywood and Miami(SoBe...my pal Mikey's local back then)in the winter after strong cold fronts passed through. No one back then ever explained it to me properly. Strong lows and hurricanes parked just off Georgia or Hatteras at other times of the year producing big north swells can produce the same effect. Even really strong, sustained WNW-NW winds to the north of us can produce small north refraction swells in our area. Waves don't 'bounce'...ie.'reflect'...off anything(unless you count backwash)...they 'bend'...ie.'refract'. As swells in deep water approach shallower water...the swell angle actually changes due to bottom frictional increase & resulting speed decrease...(1)http://www.coastal.udel.edu/ngs/waves.html...(2)http://search.aol.com/aol/search?query=refraction&s_it=keyword_rollover

Sometimes intensely strong south winds...either pre-cold front or tropical storm related...blowing up the Florida Straights from Cuba...can whip seas up enough on this side of the Bahamas to produce pretty decent south refraction swells...if the wind eventually dies or goes offshore. Sebastian Inlet was always a great place for those particular events...much better than down here. Patrick AFB/2nd Light/South Cocoa Beach were/are my favorite places for tropical storm/hurricane south swells coming from east of the Bahamas.

The surf has finally picked up!(Check the Jensen Beach cam)...Looks like a combo wind swell...without the longer period of a solid ground swell...but at least the wind hasn't picked up much...yet. The buoys are looking fairly good. I'm gonna take advantage of low tide, light winds and no crowds...and get it now. Don't think it(swell angle)will clear the Bahamas enough for the Juno pier regulars...but Hobe Sound Beach is probably worth a shot. Low tide is noon today.

Let me relate the ways the surf sucked today(at Jensen Beach that is...Stuart Beach looked worse)...I went too late(2 PM), the 'swells' were kinda weak and short(ish)period & only maybe waist to chest high, the wind picked up to 15mph++ SE, the tide got too high too soon. But it was better than anything I've surfed so far this year.=^[

Looking better on the Jupiter Inlet Beach cam right now than it does up here. The 20 mile Canav. buoy is bigger than I thought it would be. The Ft. Pierce buoy was stalled at 12 A.M. readings last night...nothing current...typical SNAFU...when you really want it...it's not available! Models show an incoming swell. Wind IS gonna be a problem I think, as usual. High tide at 10:30 + ...Air temp. @ daybreak this A.M. was 42 deg. F....Waitin' for the warmup and the refract swell to fill in here later. Not headin' south for this. Yet another non-epic event. Sigh

Once I saw the wind readings go over 20mph North...I completely lost interest in any incoming swell this afternoon. The two beach cams(Jensen & Bathtub)both crapped out today so I couldn't tell if the swell filled in here finally. Looks like someone flipped a switch for a long period swell around 3 P.M. on the Ft. Pierce buoy today...so it probably started coming in here about then. It looked good on the Jupiter Inlet cam later in the morning. The Lake Worth Inlet cam(Pumphouse/Reef Road area) and the NEW Breakers cam(Palm Beach)showed improvement past mid-day. The Stuart Beach curse continues. Maybe it will be broken tomorrow. Glad you had fun and could make a day of it. I think it will have less north angle Monday...and may not reach Reef Road. But Juno should be good...maybe bigger than today with less wind early.

It was Lake Okeechobee on a calm day flat this A.M. on the Jensen Beach cam. I just looked again 5 minutes ago and there are small north-angled refraction swell lines coming in...maybe 1 ft....The tricky thing is the wind. Your area will have all the advantages tomorrow compared to here. The coast bends at McArthur State Park on Singer Island to due north-south...so NW winds will be more offshore from there south than up here. The north-angled swell will probably be bigger down there too as it bends in to the coast. There's some contest tomorrow at Sebastian Inlet but I'll be surprised if they get waves half the size ours will be down here. I may end up at Ocean Reef Park(Singer Island)tomorrow with my pal Mikey if he twists my arm and it sucks here. The conditions keep looking better for tomorrow from what I'm seeing now. But something will go wrong...It always does.

I've heard/read that a lot of native New Yawkers go to Tortola, V.I.'s(Apple Bay, Cane Garden Bay)in the winter for the cold front north swell juice...which usually bypasses Florida. I've only been to St. John's, V.I. once...helping my brother on a big tile job there for two weeks. A rich guy's house and guest house on the beach in Cinnamon Bay. Worked like a dog allday/everyday with occasional snorkeling or fishing breaks. Got torn up by clouds of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes day and night...but somehow didn't get Dengue. It was a slight problem not far away in Puerto Rico even back then('92?). We camped inside the job site the second week I was there...after the rich guy had a renter move into the nice place we got to stay in the first week I was there. I could see distant whitewater most of the time...boat accessible only. Most of St. Johns is a U.S. Territory National Preserve...and is beautifully undeveloped...unlike nearby St. Thomas. It has winter surf potential.

The Ft. Pierce buoy...when it's working...usually shows two swells. The last readings I saw this morning had one 18 sec. period swell and one 9 sec. swell. Each was less than 3 ft...but the occasional, potentially in sync combo swells could be worth paddling out for. I've noticed when they are out of phase/sync/whatever(ex. 6 sec. and 10 sec.)...the 'combo' = disorganized, small junk. This will fade quick too.

My brother is a tile(and was in spa install's)guy out in Seattle, WA. and was close to living in his car very recently because of lack of work...but finally got some work for a good while now. Just talked to him tonight. What video I've seen of the Brisbane River carrying all kinds of vehicles and vessels rapidly down stream looks surreal. Saw one other video of cars in a parking lot floating away in a gradually rising current...ending up piled on top of each other downstream as the water receded. It's hard to believe that much water can fall from the sky. Is your house/floor still above the water line?

This is just one of many 'Barely Political' comedy videos. Be careful...they are addictive. One just leads to another. This one is called 'YouTube Comment Fight'. I shared this with Dangalow some time back after remembering him leave a comment about all his YouTube conflicts with 'Nazis', racists, etc. when he used to be more active on that forum and less so on this one...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwbeddZ9aKI&feature=channel...My favorite one, just barely, is still 'Heavy Metal Cats'...but that's just because I am a cat loving weirdo. There are some very hot looking women in some of these...including Obama Girl.

I just looked after a dog(twice a day visits to their house)for a couple who are surfer friends of mine while they took a two week drive exploring coastal California from south to north. His mother lives in Nica and he goes there as often as possible. He's a high school teacher. She's in social work. Great couple who are very happy they found each other. They've been together a few years now and have been to Nica as a couple one time that I know about...but probably more. It's been 6 years since I went to CR(My third time)...with a few others...to Boca Baranca & Nosara this third time...El Sal still sounds a bit sketchy to me...especially with all those El Sal gangstas I've read about being arrested for crimes in the USA(LA mostly)and then deported back home with all their newly acquired money-making street 'skills'...and no honest, real jobs for them to come back to. I've just read about 'the troubles' in Mexico spilling further and further south(Guatemala & Honduras). How 'bout all those decapitated bodies just found in Acapulco a day or two ago. I'd still love to go to Nica one day. Or the Osa peninsula in CR. Maybe even Panama...mostly to see and travel the canal itself...which has great historical significance for me. Surfing there would be a secondary bonus. I wouldn't be that disappointed if both side were flat.

if you go to panama, consider boca's del toro, so sick there. you'll think youre in fiji when you snorkel the reefs there, and all the little atolls through out there make an endless selection of options depending on conditions, boats are cheap and available. we used to go to panama every 3 months to keep our passports straight while living in costa. mandatory 3 day vacation, i've dealt with worse. i'm leaning towards el sal, but it sounds like on of those, have the hotel pick you up at airport, surf out front and eat all meals there kinda thing. not the free willy rental car griswold style surf trip that costa always turns into.

yes, to answer your question, I do delete and re write my comments all the time within moments bcs I have been accused of having awkward verbosity. And yes, I also delete my own comments the morning after for 2 reasons, 1; I was drunk and have no idea what I was talking about and 2: they were a little over the top. I was actually going to delete all my comments to you this morn in the interest of niceness but ironically thought I shouldnt bcs that would leave just your comments and make you look like an angry malicious dude attacking me.

Uh oh...I think they're onto me!...Nahhh...I've got plenty of good stuff stockpiled in the old wine cellar already...and I'm trying to stop...or at least cut back some. It's all Joggly's fault...this obsessive C&P habit of mine. But dudette kinda broke my spirit, temporarily that is, when she did some Joggly-style 'spring cleaning' on her page and destroyed a delicately teasing, carefully crafted thread I had going there, with Caswell's Welsh-inspired help...BEFORE I could C&P it...Sniff. I was just trying to subtley illustrate a point with her about how sometimes standing your ground...no matter what...isn't always the way to go...or a sign of strength. Being ABLE to change your mind after carefully considering OTHER perspectives IS a sign of strength...not weakness. Stubborn can be good or bad. Not all opinions are equally valid. But everyone has an equal RIGHT to express an opinion...however valid it is. I may just reconstruct some of my little illustration here on tjo's page. Unfortunately...Caswell's & Coelocanth's Welsh banter before it was lost forever. Pity. Will I NEVER learn? I still have my Zulu Dawn story dudette!

I don't know/remember if you were affected by some very determined little twerp(s) about 3 or 4 months ago or not...but a bunch of us got mass negged -2 points on EVERY comment/reply on our pages. We banded together as 'The League Of Positivity'...or some such rallying name...Caswell's idea mostly...and went to each affected page, even some pic pages that were affected...and restored those 2 points as much as possible. It was a mind-numbing slog on some pages...like mine...for poor bastards like Toad who took it on. It wasn't the points or ratings themselves so much that mattered...just the message sent by some twerp(s)that they could randomly mess with you anonymously without caring what you thought and without respecting you as a MSW member. And there was no way to retaliate either. I think we sent an important message back though...but it took some effort and cooperation between a bunch of Weeders that cared about each other. And wanted to keep MSW fun for everyone.

yeah i noticed he's gone. i think he's still here though, who was that Amacady anyway? he seemed to have the same aggenda, between the moose, bromo, amacady, nasty p.... its funny, when one of them is active the others usually arent, like i said before, this confuses me. personally if i want to say something, i want people to know who said it. still wonder if the cabbage poker, and the sheep shagger are one in the same. i think he was so pissed at us americans back when he left, why not come back to stir the pot as what he hates, an american ignoramus, could it have been him just trying to get more weeders from over the pond to join in his hatred for us? and maybe nasty p went downtown for selling crack, or he got bored of me correcting his spelling (and mantis's constant encouragement, which i thought weird, nasty's comments werent even funny.... unless youre also a bigot or wrote them yourself!!) i guess we'll always be surrounded by assholes in here, might as well be, thats how the real world is after all. i just went down to the beach here at sunrise this morning, nothing doin. how's it up there? maybe next week.

p.s. amacady already changed his name to Gorgewbush, read what he has to say and tell me what you think? i think it's the same ignorant twat trying to get everyone to jump on his hate train. i really feel bad for the dipshits that read his (and others) comments and actually believe it and retaliate with anti "sepo" bs. all i know is these ignorant dipshits are not the same quality of surfers,travelers, and people that i meet when i'm out traveling to new countries, thats why i only generalize them by calling them dipshits, not important where theyre from. i guess no matter where you go, if you stay too long, you become a douche too! keep moving coeli! dont let the mold grow!!

Hey...If you are not finding much of any interest in the latest pic threads...and find the current post-conflict/truce situation too awkward to deal with right now...here are some older pics with some threads that show how much fun things once were...and maybe could be again someday...even though it seems kinda pitiful around here right now. Some of the threads no longer make as much sense as they originally did because Sqirl and Shorey got profile banned at various times for their wild antics and windups and their comments and replies from those times of forced exile disappeared. They were only allowed back by MSW admin this latest time(following some conflict that got out of hand...about a year ago?...hmmmm)after a spongerdudette-instigated begging/mass e-mail campaign supported by many MSW members. Those two haven't been the same since. Which is probably good in some ways for MSW. But not in others. Sqirl is a lot happier, I think, since he & his wife(and 2 weiner dogs)emigrated from South Carolina to Australia recently. Good for him...bad for us Weeders...since we lost our token(Oh, he's gonna love that word!)resident southern USA redneck Bush-supporter lightning rod/ambassador of international goodwill(NOT),hahaha. It may not be fair for me to reveal this priveleged political information...but Sqirl is now a Liberal...in Australia. It's TRUE! I'll say no more about THAT. You may be a New Yawk YANKEE(that's a Sqirl epithet...and it gets his attention in text like a dog-whistle, that Y word) TJO...but you remind me very much of Sqirl in your combativeness, energy, sense of right and wrong(honor & chivalry?), common sense, street smarts, sense of humor, wit, sarcasm, etc...Lots of similarities there...and a rabid surfer like yourself as well.......(1)http://magicseaweed.com/photoLab/viewPhoto.php?photoId=112865...(2)http://magicseaweed.com/photoLab/viewPhoto.php?photoId=135362...(3)http://magicseaweed.com/photoLab/viewPhoto.php?photoId=113409...(4)http://magicseaweed.com/photoLab/viewPhoto.php?photoId=169349

Thanks Younss...I needed that! This is the first page I've been to so far today. Haven't been on mine yet. Not looking forward to it like I used to. You are now right near the top of my favorites list of Weeders.;-) I AM old and grumpy! If I could just get some decent waves here sometime soon(OH Lawdy...Trouble So Hard)...it might help change one of those qualities a little bit anyway. Part of my final frustration was the lack of interest in seeing why & how Andrew1828 got eliminated. I was admittedly over-the-top(for me anyway...I don't do rants...or DO I?)in my later reactions to additional, weaker, juvenile harrassers. Maybe in my Mantis decision too. It's just that...I've seen this movie before. I'm not a fighter like you and dudette...who never gives up on ANY of these stray animals...tho', for me...she IS hard to understand sometimes. It must be me. 'Nuff said.

.....''hard to understand'' and now ''Monkey Boots Dudette''..I'm talking to you Coelocanth...I'm talking to you, you cheeky monkey ;) And tjo a ''weeder'' is someone that is a user of MSW, but of course it can mean ''weeder'' in the other sense as well. I personally have no problem with fake profile because on the whole they can be amusing. If the ''fakers'' Brit bash or diss Americans then you either read it and chuckle, or bite back which forefulls the aim of the ''faker''. The only time I don't like them is when they actually target one person in particular and post nasty, abusive and unnecessary comments against that person for no reason whatsoever. But on the whole, I read the comments, chuckle and move onto something else lol.

Modernity is tasty a well :) Surf is the best at home during winter (from november to march), from may to sept is definitely not the best time of the year (you'd better go to any southern hemi location where it'll be winter at that time..). Right now, we receive those long period ground swells that travel from Ireland through the whole North Atlantic to wrap around our points facing the west.

Thanks for the Christmas cheer. Christmas day is starting to look epic surf wise, from what I just saw on the 120 mile buoy and the various weather maps I use. Should be overhead, long period, organized, clean north swells with no wind at all here. Maybe even bigger down there in Jupiter/Juno/Lake Worth. High tide mid-morning. The storm sending them is centered off Newfoundland and is also sending swells to the Caribbean, The Azores, Portugal, Spain...basically the entire North Atlantic will get something from this...It's huge!!!...I'm going very early to beat the crowd and the high tide...and I don't trust the wind staying dead calm past mid-morning either.

Will I NEVER learn? Using the word 'epic' in any sentence about any swell expected to reach MY Stuart Beach is ALWAYS a mistake. I will NOT elaborate...Well OK, maybe I will. It helps to kvetch sometimes. I always hear too late about how good it was...like early this morning when I planned to go...but didn't(too damned cold excuse again...will I NEVER learn?). I made the call on the wind though. Strong south side shore cranked up just before I got there at 11:15...making it really suck with a lot of side bump. No thanks. Went back at 4 after the wind shifted to offshore SW. Looked good from the beach. It wasn't. Still a south bump in it and closing out and smaller. Had to wear my full-length 3/2 old, stiff wetsuit, which I hate to do...sub-tropics my frozen ass!!!(probably sound like a whiner here to those Euros)...On both of my really promising, bigger, head high+ waves(possibly barrels?)...I got serious cramps in my leg calfs as I stood up...and then, unable to actually use my legs properly, went down very unstylishly...like I'd been shot there. Oddly, it was the left(barrel?)that I got my left calf cramp on...and the right(barrel?)that coincided with my right calf cramp. All I want for Christmas is my mojo back.

hahaha, as usual, joking. but what i mean is, he has a lot of american references going, so i was making the joke that maybe he's not aussie at all, just another (ashamed to be) american big mouth(like me) racist (not like me) and not to hide behind the aussie flag since he couldnt possibly offend people anymore. like, not even being american is more offensive. thats offensive. "gringo" was coined by the mexican citizens when we were taking everything from cali to texas and moving our boundries south. as the american soldiers would march toward a village the citizens would line the streets chanting "green go home!!" they didnt speak our language, just taught phonically how to say it in protest. so it evolved from green go to gringo. thats why we're called that, it's not a white skin thing, its an american thing

hahaha! You kill me C-lo and tjo and I can appreciate the discipline you have to not post to where you feel doesn't need your feedback because ..well, shit, it's just a waste of time(I need to follow good examples because I've followed bad ones for to long). BTW, it's really kewl to see 2 Florida boys with opinions that are rare from the majority of freaks I meet from there(not that you both aren't weirdos). I was once a sub contractor in shipyards for around 7 years one time and thought I would share my Florida-Jacksonville experience with you guys which I thought might give you guys a chuckle...I was sent to Mayport for 4 weeks to do installations on an aircraft carrier during the Spring break, and during the ride down from VA, all that the rest of the crew in the van, including natives of Florida, kept talking about how we would arrive right around 8pm and that the girls are like no other in FLORIDA! Very true as we see from Mel...So we arrive, get settled into our rooms and hit the bars...Very first night there and the bars are on SMASH,I'm getting wasted and next thing you know(Iknow)I wake up the next morning in 2 complete strangers hotel room (one older fella and a naked woman)at around 6am...I grab all of my stuff(shoes, shirt, phone, keys, wallet)and hauled ass out of the room...my phone was dead, I couldn't remember a thing and that's rare for me, to how I was lost from my co-workers...all that I knew was that I had a calling card from a recent trip to Boston, so I had to wait on Mayport and 30th something st. at a payphone until 7am, when my shop in VA opened so someone from the crew could pick me up in the only work van we had...let alone, I had no idea where the hotel was or it's name because we were in and then out of it so fast...From day one that was the only time I had gone out and partied, those guys begged everynight to go out, bringing diffrent girls back(the stories!)and I passed, ready to get home...I think someone slipped me a ruffie or something...just glad my butthole wasn't sore...which became the joke for months in my shop...I never wanted to go to Florida after that!....That's my only Florida story and it's a sad one...So...pretty crappy BUTT I hope you can appreciate a Virginian boys experience there...scared to go back!

HA! That's a good story Dangalow. I grew up in Ft. Liquordale aka Ft. Lauderdale when it became Party Central for drunken college Spring Breakers. Long before Cancun or wherever kids go these days en masse. And wall-to-wall beachfront hi-rise condominiums and road-rage inspiring traffic jams. And usually no surf...other than knee to waist high wind chop if we were lucky. I was an outdoors & nature loving boy who barely escaped the protective cocoon of my Southern Baptist upbringing. Weekend surf trips north to Cocoa Beach or Ft. Pierce were early escapes from the growing South Florida congestion madness for me, my brother and our friends. Drinking(and other chemicals)never was one of my outlets, but it became a chronic one for my brother...and has caused him many problems to this day...If I'd ever been in the military that might have been different(One year in a dormitory at Jacksonville University was enough barracks life for me. Downtown Jacksonville back then was a scary place. Didn't like Jax Beach either). He was...and brought back a wife from Korea. She seemed nice...at first. Not now though. In a way he has his own, personal, neverending Korean War going on...that is a constant reminder to me of the dangers of drink & drugs...and marriage? Nah...I have my own memories & regrets to remind me of the dangers of poor decision making regarding marriage. On a lighter note...I noticed your spelling has really deteriorated in one hour. Looks suspicious. I think you have left yourself vulnerable for some abuse here(too many puns to choose from...I'll leave it alone).

I have always been a nerd Dangalow. Saved a little bit from total nerdiness by surfing...or so I keep trying to convince myself. But it really is too late for me to stop embarrassing myself completely. At my age...what would be the point? I'll never be asked to appear in an 'Old Spice' commercial. Or 'Fruit Of The Loom' either. I wore fairly thick lens glasses with solid dark horn rim type frames...like a 'Far Side' cartoon character...until college...when I finally got some 'coool' John Lennon-esque type wire frames. But I had to squint so much to see where I was going out in the water in my early surfing days that I'm sure I looked like a Japanese kamikaze pilot in attack mode most of the time. Soft(and now cheap & disposable)contact lenses eventually made me less dangerous out there...and made a world of difference in my entire surfing experience visually. My earliest home-made, jerry-rigged sun blocking headgear(before similar but better quality, 'cooler' stuff became commercially available...and socially acceptable in the lineup)earned me the nickname 'The Flying Nun' by some of my crueler compadres. It is a cruel world out there Dangalow...just like on MSW...only more real and more embarrassing.

It was about waist to chest high. There should be some good north angled refraction swells coming in down your way today. Haven't looked at the cams here yet. The air temp was 52 deg.

OK...Last comment about crocodiles from me.

The croc survived too...until he was hacked to death by machete(s). I am NOT making this up. It actually happened back in late August. Don't know why it's such a story this much later. Maybe the survivor couldn't tell what happened until he/she recovered enough...http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/democraticrepublicofcongo/8078612/Aircraft-crashes-after-crocodile-on-board-escapes-and-sparks-panic.html...The 'references' to the Samuel L.

Damas Rivermouth - Rivermouth break 1 and 1/4 miles north of the Quepos Rivermouth. Strong rip on outgoing tide. Best on incoming tide.

I assumed wrong, as usual. The Siamese croc in the video, Crocodylus siamensis, is a rare, almost extinct(in it's natural habitats)freshwater croc. It is considered inoffensive and not a threat to humans(except to handlers I guess). The Indo-Pacific croc or Australian croc or 'saltie' is the more dangerous wide-ranging saltwater croc, C. porosus. The American croc is C. acutus and it also ranges into saltwater areas like C. porosus.

Ever wondered why there aren't more crocodile attacks on ticos and tourists and surfers in C.R.? I was a little nervous surfing that muddy river mouth at Boca Barranca one day back in 1982...when it was still fairly primitive and uncrowded(only two of us out!...on clean, head high, endlessly long, perfect pealers). I get the impression they've killed off the really big, 'troublesome' ones...and keep the rest of them well fed with chicken and fish at certain selected tourist viewing sites, like Tarcoles...to prevent any bad PR incidents and to keep the eco-tourists & their dollars coming. Still, it CAN happen...http://www.fearbeneath.com/2008/09/surfer-attacked-by-crocodile-in-costa-rica/...That whole zona sur and Osa peninsula(and Pavones!)still looks wild & wonderful on the internet & in magazines.

If comments are going to be allowed, they should ALL be allowed...or none.

Deleting a comment on one of your own pics is something common i guess, c'mon, you shouldn't take it too personnaly. I agree that they're probably friends since he knows her name & she allowed him to post the picture on a public site...

''He'' deletes comments from his photos which aren't complimentary to the subject or photo. Also he deletes comments if there is any banter between spongers and poo squatters, as he thinks it's childish. ''He'' actually stated this going back quite some time ago when he first started uploading shots on here. Okay fair enough...delete the comments about the female surfer, as some were getting quite personal and the girl does have feelings and I expect is really a nice person. But poo squatters V sponges, that has just got be be left as it's just fun.......innit!!

Didn't notice that before... not really cool indeed. I guess we should all NOT delete comments, even ours, otherwise a few threads make no sense...

Younss, that '...Sqizel fo' shizzle!' reply of yours now makes no sense after 'He' deleted my combo 'mild-protest/recycled self-quote' reply...and removed the context. Good advice on not taking it personally, btw...not that I did or would. However, some of the photogs do seem to sometimes forget one of the main reasons so many of us on MSW actually click on their pics. Needless to say...I will NOT be Add-ing THAT particular pic To Cart!

If MSW swell charts/forecasts are to be believed, hahaha, our long nightmare of a flat spell here on the East Coast will be ending next weekend. TD #6 is on the way!
