A mini nor'easter kicked up a good swell, there were some massive cleanup sets. You were either on the shoulder of this wave or falling through a trap door. An 11 foot tide.

Hye Tyde boast alert >> my last ride was a set wave, an honest 7' on the drop. The Farbo can handle some juice. I swear I could feel the fin flex and snap back after the turn. That buzz outweighed the fact that I only had 3 waves in an amount of time I'm too embarrassed to disclose. << end boast alert.

The 5mm hooded wetsuit, boots, and gloves were a good call this morning, temps in the 40's and stiff wind. A sample of what's coming.

Other spots were still blown out.
