    My attempt at humor.
    9’10” noserider from Phillips.
    Definitely the prettiest board I own.
    Craftsmanship is undeniable.

    Crossed the dunes to perfect little summer waves today. Very light offshores that didn't disturb the glass, waist to shoulder peelers... drop knee after the first section, take a high line... climb and drop, cutback again, line up for the little section all the way to the beach. Lots of people in the water, but it was one of those days that it seemed like only a few were paying attention. Shift a bit, grab a swing set, paddle out. Shift inside, grab a little peeler, paddle out. Repeat again and again. Home by 10 and stoked!

    Nice dawn patrol today. Two little stokers: (1) I have to laugh -- every time I think I'm going to be the first guy in the water, I'll see these younger dudes already suited up walking onto the beach with their boards. I sure as hell wasn't waking up to hit DP when I was their age. Good for them, they're always on it. (2) I was talking to an older guy in the lineup about how he had to give up surfing for a while due to his knees. He finally recovered from surgery a couple years ago and has just getting back in the water this year. I saw him line up a nice long one -- you could see the stoke radiating from him as he zipped down the line. He seemed even more stoked when he realized a couple of us saw his wave and gave him some hoots. Like they say, the best surfer in the water is the one having the most fun.

    Looks fun! I hit the beach this AM up on Cape Ann, but it was flat so my 11 yo son and I did a bit of surfcasting. Fun times!

    Caught the end of day session here in NJ just north of where Chilly Willy usually goes out. Waist high peelers with a west wind made for a really fun time. Paddled out where no one was for some reason and then guys paddled out after I caught a few. No problem, plenty to go around. The f'in Green Heads were eating me up though. West wind and 95° air temps bring those Mf'ers out in force, I have a few welts from the walk/run back to the car post session. Well worth it now that I have eaten and showered and I have time to reflect on how lucky I am to live close to the beach.

    Nice! I had a feeling that the evening session would have also been good.

    My 9 year old just paddled into his own waves as well as caught a few before they broke: both firsts for him. His two summertime goals scratched off the list.

    Killer little session again this morning. A bit smaller than forecast, but lots of waist to shoulder high waves to be had. Pretty glassy, lined up rights and lefts, not too crowded even though I didn't hit the water until eight. My daughter took some photos, the lighting was great, and the ambiance in the water was really mellow.

    Walking back over the dune, there was a non-stop line of people arriving. It's supposed to go over one hundred degrees today, and everyone and their extended family appears to be heading to the coast. I'd forgotten what really crowded beaches were like and am glad we got out of there by ten!

    Extended flat spell here in SoCal, so no stoke to share. Been getting out in the dribblers just to stay in paddling shape for when a swell eventually comes.
