    STRONG Offshores

    For the record, when the wind blows offshore 40-50mph+, Swellinfo will show BLUE conditions... Hopefully you realize that offshore winds that strong will make for dangerous conditions.

    What makes strong offshore winds in the 40-50mph range dangerous?

    if nothing else, your board wacking you in the face at 50mph after a nasty wipeout

    I surf blindfolded. That's how much I rip. lol
    Ovisously dropping in while stand up surfing would be problematic.

    I'm just wondering if it creates currents where you have trouble getting back in if you lose your board. Ie like a beach long rip current because wind creates current.. Never been out in 50mph winds so was just wondering.

    Other than the blinding spray you will tend to find it difficult to make it down the face without being blown back up and over the falls. Also really easy to get blown way outside between sets.
