    Better start learning Spanish or Portuguese! If you're lucky you'll end up in Morocco...great points over there

    A little common sense will go a long way here............If you are scared....... stay on the beach.

    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!

    Dont worry about the wind- the real question is - 'is there going to be any waves left?'

    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?
