The first year I surfed, I thought the waves were fine all the time!
By year 8 of living at the coast, I felt the waves were rarely good, and almost always coincidental with more pressing land-based obligations.
Such is life.

I suggest a nice IPA and some Roald Dahl short stories until the reports are 4' @ 12 seconds...

Although there were a good amount of days close to resembling the top picture last January and February, since then the last year has been one of the worst in recent memories. Yah sure there’s been waves to ride here and there, but the quality meh…… at least there’s a barrel in pic 2. Here’s to hoping for better Surf in Oregon in 2013. Happy New Year.

I've come back to this picture several times. It's pretty funny and spot on. I live on the Central California coast. Used to live back in Southern California and the juxtaposition you posted sums up my current surfing life. Great post. Number 2 looks super gnarly!
