Wow… December 8th and only one decent swell this whole winter so far, (and I missed it). I feel like an Oliver Twist like beggar looking for wave crumbs in the streets of a surf impoverished West Coast. Mother Nature has really done a number on us again with a lack luster work ethic that should result in an immediate firing.

I’m thinking/hoping that the swell corridor has to burst wide open soon and that it’s only a matter of time until we see a legitimate wave bonanza. Until then I’ll keep going to my anger management classes and popping those Prozac.
