So I've been starved of good waves in Maine this summer. Literally anke high for months now. We got a bit of good stuff but it lasted a day at best and even still it was weird chest high wind swells. Winters coming !
I've been able to get on the water and have almost as much fun as surfing with my hobie 16. Sailed that catamaran 15 miles from Maine to New Hampshirs last week with some excellent off shore wind ... Here's a video to show how fun cat sailing really is and how it helps me accept the fact that there's no waves to surf on a nice summer afternoon. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=83SlckPNB44&feature=plcp

Brah, this same thread ain't even buried in the archives. It was from a couple weeks ago. Dig it up. Was an enjoyable one and many different posters chimed in.

We did a 15 mile canoe trip on the Santa Fe river last week. We went by about 8 or 9 springs and paddled into Poe, Lilly, Blue, and Ginnie springs and snorkled. Only saw one small gator but the scenery was great and there wasn't anybody on the river being a weekday.`Good times.
Good thing there was no waves or I would be bummed!
Last year I did a 90 mile canoe trip on the Allagash waterway in Northern Maine.

I usually work on the golf game or the honey do list. I used to go on motorcycle trips, before I sold my bike. Never, ever, for any reason, sell your bike.

On topic: I have plenty to do whether it's flat or not. My roof is still leaking post-Sandy (b!tch) so I'm constantly patching (not enough money for a full replacement), picking up dog sh!t, working 2 jobs, coaching my kid's sports teams, etc, etc
Free time when it's flat: riding the Harley, fishing, target shooting, drinking Jack Daniels, and swimming.
