    sacrifice for surf

    look at that dismal forecast!

    lets end this flat spell with some surf sacrifice!

    take old or new surf stuff and burn it in your back yard. the more valuable the items the more effective the sacrifice. freshly emptied beer/malt liquor bottles smashed into the fire help as well.

    now get to it!

    would rather buy a plane ticket and follow that purple blob to nova scotia but I don't have a dry suit.

    You don't need a dry suit to surf in 41.5 degree water.

    True. I've got a 5/4 and just bought a 3/3 that will probably get me thru this winter temps down to about 43. I'm thinking we are in a La Nina pattern this winter but I'm sure some meteorologist or climatologist who trolls the board will correct my assumptions. I didnt look at the .gif but if that purple blob and surrounding area is current then PR will be getting biiiiggggggg.

    Call me a troll, then... but you're right. So far it looks like a relatively weak La Nina for this winter. This usually means fewer typical Nor'Easter type coastal storms for us, and more short period frontal boundary related south windswells.

    Yea, this time last year we were under about 1ft snow/ice and I can only count 1 NE'ster so far. It's been an unusually steady fall and early winter for the delmarva minus this flat spell thats been going on for about 2 weeks. Coupled with warmer temps and I like warm weather. I'd take a good snow if it would bring some solid surf but you're probably right and the south swells are entirely out of our window down here.
