And Surfline Sez...

Well, guess I'm not the only one exasperated by the horrendous conditions this summer.

The front page of Surfline.com today has a picture of a guy standing in chest deep water - brick reddish nasty tea colored - wearing a fullsuit, holding his board up in the air, and basically just looking at the camera, as whitecaps blow around him, his expression saying, "What the FUCK???"

The headline was, "Why Has This Summer Been So Bad In Socal?", and the accompanying article is pretty good:

It tries to explain the red tides, the jellyfish, the lack of waves, the wind, the freezing cold water, and everything else that has made this summer suck. A few questions remained unanswered, but it's a worthwhile read anyway.

Anyhow, it sounds like we're all in the same boat.
