    Only a few days are possible on the Great Lakes….And half of those are in November and March…….Usually kind of chilly….

    And not just any coast.

    Up here in Northern California there are a few places where you can surf if you’re really an expert…
    but it’s dangerous…

    What you DON’T do in a dry year like this is waste all that precious water,
    by pouring it on the sidewalk.

    Jef Mallet lives just down the road from me in Michigan. We’ve had a very, very, wet year.
    And as far as surfing in NorCal goes, I wouldn’t recommend trying it at Point Reyes. That’s where I go to watch the Great Whites eat the seals.

    Thehag…. I said “up here”….

    I’m about 150 miles north of Santa Cruz….

    Sure, people surf there, and Half Moon Bay, even up in Humboldt County…
    but even experienced surfers have been hurt.

    Mavericks is closer to me…. about 75 miles south…. and very dangerous….

    The coast of Sonoma County, whiich is where I live, is wild and mostly rocky….

    There are days, mostly cold ones, when the waves are high….
    and people find coves and beaches to surf
    but I wish they wouldn’t.

    Every year somebody dies…. and one year it was a friend of mine.

    They’re NOT places for a beginner…. much less for a kid like Caulfield.

    And Endless Summer was filmed all over the world, AFAIK not around here.

    I grew up surfing in NJ. No obstacles except an occasional jetty. The Gulf Stream brought warm water up from the south, eliminating the need for wet suits. It was fun, but the local authorities limited the areas where one could surf pretty severely. Early morning and late afternoon were the only options.

    In New England, the best surfing seems to happen during the wild storms of November and into the winter, which requires a wet suit and a LOT of devotion to the sport. Brrr.

    Our shark control on the Mississippi seems to work pretty well.

    Here in Georgia we’re practically drowning. Mom’s garden actually did drown due to the rain, we got very little out of it.

    That’s the east coast for you. Some years it is really dry. Other years, it is wet.
    It has been wet in Virginia this summer, too.
    .So wet, the grass is still green and it’s August.
    Kids could have surfed on the sidewalks here two days ago.
    It rained so hard there were little waves going down the street.

    I’m surprised nobody has commented on the Dick Dale reference. He is now 76, and still going strong. His influence on music is tremendous.
