The National Weather Service has issued a high surf advisory for the Massachusetts coast for tomorrow, with surf of three to five feet possible. Do yourself a favor, the NWS advises, and stay way the hell away from the pounding surf:

VIEWERS OF LARGE SURF SHOULD BE IN SAFE AREAS WELL AWAY FROM POSSIBLE SPLASH OVER. INDIVIDUAL WAVES MAY BE MORE THAN TWICE THE SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT...WHICH CAN SWEEP A PERSON INTO THE WATER FROM WHAT MAY SEEM TO BE A SAFE VIEWING AREA. FALLING INTO THE TURBULENT AND SOMETIMES ROCKY WATERS CAN RESULT IN INJURY THAT REDUCES THE CHANCE OF SURVIVAL.

Wax your board

... waste your brain ... pray for waves.

Now where did I put that wetsuit ...

A thousand thanks Adam

By on

Classic song by the immortal Gremies. For better or worse you're an honorary Dot Rat now.

And while there is no surfing in Dorchester Bay there was plenty of jumping off the Malibu bridge. Spent every summer doing it.
