Drive down.. I think it will be worth it. It's been fun the last few days (in Monmouth)and it should be a little bigger Friday. Earlier the better as the breeze comes onshore in the afternoon.
Friday morn in OCMD just went dead red as of now (Tues evening). And it may change umpteen times again by the time Friday rolls around.
But we're all worthless idiots, as you say, sportcoat. Hey .... let us know how the kindling pile test drives for you on Friday.
yankee that's a good heads up on the Windguru site. Hadn't seen that one yet and if it's known to be accurate that is a good resource. I check them all. Only thing with Windguru is that it doesn't list some breaks I go to. Have seen some consistency with Surf-Forecast.com with a few breaks I've kept my eye on lately.
Good use of the Stripes quote. Aside from the entire script of My Cousin Vinny, that's my father's favorite movie line.
What do the rest of you guys use for accurate forecasting sites or methods? Charts, etc. With good days being fewer and fewer soon out East, knowing the times to hit it is of value and will save some frustration.
Does anyone pay attention to the kilo Joules in the waves as being predictive to quality of surf? I've noted that over the last couple weeks and it's made a difference in the quality of waves I've sought out at different breaks in the area. I wonder if much higher energy in some waves is as good or better (in different ways) than clean conditions in waves that lack significant energy. There is some good power in the waves tomorrow in RI and I'm trying to determine whether to head down there. It's not the cleanest forecast there but perhaps the net net of riding them is worth the trip for waves that will be present here but in much less power in kJ.
If you want to daydream, take a look at the kJ in some breaks this week in Australia. Doesn't hurt that they have long period 15 footers with 5mph offshores. Utopia.
it's getting close to summer...
I was just goofin' on ya, EC. No animosity intended. Thunderstorms in the forecast for Friday, so I will stay close to home and paddle out at 130th St in OCMD, in the AM. No need to PM me - just come on out. The lineup is pretty empty up here in North OC compared to midtown (where it does break better).
Friday is the last day before OCBP starts guarding beaches daily, so you may as well surf OC.
Peace and aloha.
Wednesday in Delmarva wasnt too shabby!
