    Don't always go by the colors and "choppy" forecast. Sure at a certain wind mph you can be assured it'll be blown out, but the red, blue and green are dictated by a certain range. Once it goes over the assigned mph, which could only be one mph, it'll change colors. Learn the area where you surf and what it does during certain conditions. I try and keep a log of swell direction, period, height, wind direction, speed, etc, so I can ball park what the ocean will be like. Scored a solid clean 6'+ day with a friend at a very popular NJ inlet, without a soul around because the forecast called for "choppy" conditions. Guaranteed if the forecast was green, everyone and their mother would have been there. Knowledge is key, be smarter than the forecast machine.

    Be ready for June/July/early Aug flat spells they are the worst. Don't blow all your money at the bars.

    So anyone in the water @ OCMD this AM? My week has turned to hell because of work (was up until 4 AM this AM). I'm betting it was pretty nice around 6-6:30 AM. Please torture me.
