I think its a great idea.. If you get there and it looks too big I reccomend you just paddle out anyway. Big waves always look a lot scarier then they actually are, but don't worry. They can't hurt you. Don't listen to these other guys on here, they're just jealous of your bravery. Try not to stress it too much.
Lol Some good stuff here.Doesn't Laird where a jacket?
the storm is going to be too close...VAS conditions while its here, and it wont be sending us any waves after it passes. it might be rideable for a bit before theres no swell left, and thats hoping it passes during the day
