EASTHAM- “We’re day tripping, man,” said Jason Tulloch of Rhode Island, after four hours of surfing off of Coast Guard Beach.
Tulloch, 45, a contractor, was surfing with his friend, Sam Levine, 20, a carpenter, of Connecticut. They met surfing, and found Thursday a great opportunity to trek to Cape Cod.
“It was my idea,” said Levine. “I saw a report that it was going to be good.”
They took the two-hour drive to Coast Guard Beach because, “there’s nothing going on in Rhode Island today,” said Tulloch. “The north swell doesn’t wrap around to where we are.”
He added, “We surf here a few times a year. This is the best time of year. There are no people.”
And Levine said of surfing, “I love it. When you are out there, it feels like nothing else in the world matters to you.”
Tulloch said he gets to the Cape about a dozen times a year, often to Coast Guard Beach. As surfing goes, he said, this day was just okay. “It’s relative,” said Tulloch. “It’s relative. You can get two or three turns. There were no epic rides today, that’s for sure. But I am stoked just to get in the water.”
And Levine added, “I’m just happy to get in the water and get some waves.”
