Surfing at White Plains


I guess this video needs some explanation since it makes me look like a terrible surfer. We were limited by equipment - I was as far out in the water as the zoom on the digital camera would allow. The surf (as you can somewhat see) was epic yesterday, in the 5-9 ft range, but the bigger the surf, usually the smaller the shorebreak (at least at this particular beach)...So, with my mom acting as cameraman, we shot about 6 attempts and, sadly, this is the best one.

Whoa! We'll have to go up to the north side of the island and get some footage of some real waves when I get back out there.

...the waves way behind you looked pretty exciting though.

i was thinking, "wow...wish I could surf a wave half that size." aim low and you are sure to succeed!

Unfortunately, Kory, it would be mostly impossible to surf on a wave half that size...I was barely able to catch that one.

But, give me 2 hours and I could have you surfing waves three times that size. Of course, you'd have to visit...
