One of my favorite memories as a young grom was always going to check the waves early in the morning, everyday. One day we were checking and a heavy fog had formed from the boardwalk down to the water. So we decided to walk down to the water and check it. It was going off! We ran home grabbed our boards and surfed amazing waves all morning, alone. Paradise! About 9:00 AM the fog lifted and a thousand surfers converged on the spot, haha, we checked it and we scored! Always check it.
