im trying to get to the beach tommorow, but im sortof of worried about the winds.... its gonna be offshore 30-35 mph winds and 3.0 feet at 11 seconds now for my question will the wind not let me paddle back to shore?
Better start learning Spanish or Portuguese! If you're lucky you'll end up in Morocco...great points over there
i'm kind of on board with you--i have the day off and would like to paddle out but every time the off shore winds get up to this speed its just not fun--you try to drop and get hammered with water pellets in your face.
does anyone have any non d**k head thoughts on this?
Just another fun variable that the east coast loves to throw at us...Cold Blind Steep Drop-Ins!
it is super windy today, i unfortunatly am at work but watching the belmar cam on surfline and there is a ton of spray.
Aside from the question which started this thread, what about strong winds blowing you back up the face of the wave? Especially if your on a step up or a long board and wind is blowing 20-25mph offshore how do you compensate for the fact your board is going to catch the wind as you try to take off?
I for one did not stay home. Surfed 7am - 9. Totally macking solo sesh!! Wind is totally killing it. I saw a boogie boarder next jetty over get blow out pretty far...think he got run down by a freighter. RIP.
