    When it is really howling, be careful if you wipe out/bail, and even when you're just resetting to go back out, as your board will often go airborne! Not so bad with a shortboard, but when your 10'0" flies over your head, it is a little frightening.

    Im sure the wind will be heavy tomorrow but im hoping its not 30mph, right now the wind was projected to be around 20 and I don't think its even 10. Hopefully thats the case tomorrow (and possibly this aft).

    I will definitely choose a heavier glass board over a lighter epoxy on strong off shore days. Hoping this weekend is ok.

    I remember when I surfed a break on Maui where the wind was super strong offshore at a place called "Big Lefts". You had to paddle your a$$ off to get past the spray in your face then look down to a double overhead magazine quality drop. ..Good times.

    well today was pretty awesome in my opinion. the drops were tough though, it felt like being shot with a fire hose right before you stood up
