Description:

Surfing was okay. Everything else was kinda cool.

Bought a 6-5-4 suit for winter, but stuck with wearing my 4 for this session with a hood-vest that I purchased.

Here's the lesson learned after trying on multiple wetsuits...never buy a wetsuit that you didn't try on beforehand. Reason why is because different companies run different sizes for different parts of the body. i have a mutant size head and neck, and nothing besides Quiksilver fit around my head.

I saw a real seal appear 10' besides me to check me out. I screamed, then it screamed;then it disappeared. then I started paddling back.

Description:

First of all, Wes was the one who came up with this plan. It was he who saw the full 3 star report for Thursday on Magicseaweed.com.

So, that night at 11:30pm, I packed up the wagon and slept at a highway rest-stop on the border of NH. Woke up at 5:30am on Thursday morning, and drove over to the Wall by 6:15 (first light.) 

I ate too much carbs before getting in the water, so I was about to puke paddling out. It took me 2 hours to finish digesting the crap I ate, and then it was surf heaven.

I'm seriously considering getting some boots so that I don't break a toe when the leash gets caught between my toes.

Waves were glass. Single peak 6 footers that were a good 200 yards off the beach. Simply one of the best rides.

Ughh. Too many closeouts.

Wes and I were the first ones out in the fog. A LOT of fog.

Brought my longboard out, waves were shortboard.

Then brought my shortboard, waves became longboard.

Then vice versa again.

Out for only 45 minutes. That's what happens when I wait on my wife to get dressed and put on makeup. She didn't even surf! But at least she came with me and my pup.

Surf spot: Good Harbor Beach, United States of America

Session's Rate:

Length of the surf session: 8 min

Surfboard ridden: 8'4

Fins: 3

Weather and water temp: 63F

Waves height: 1m-1.2m / 3ft-4ft

Waves Quality:
- Fun

Description:

Great day.

Looked deceiving at first. Looked really choppy, the wave periods were probably 4 seconds.

But when I went in, they were fairly powerful for their size.

When low-tide went to high-tide, the breaks were long and good. When high went to low, the waves got shallower towards the shore.

Called my friend Wes halfway through the day, and we surfed to the evening.

Careful on the right towards the mouth of the river. Very shallow beach with a couple rocks.

Gulls started showing up in the middle of the afternoon and swarming the middle of the ocean. Freaked me out because of sharks, but Wes assured me that it's probably just baitfish.

Description:

Tyler and I caravanned up to Jenness after the waves were dying out in The Wall.

Jenness is always big on the North end after everything else dies out in NH, and today was no different.

Started getting really difficult paddling out because the waves were too close in together. Exhausting, actually. 

God Bless the hurricane.

Bad for the Hampton Seafood Festival, though. My wife showed up at the festival afterwards with Joni, and met up with them afterwards for free hot dogs, a burger and ice cream.

Wednesday August 27 2008 06:30:00 AM

Surf spot: Macao, Dominican Republic

Wind direction: No wind

Wind Strength: Glassy

Nb waves ridden: 1

Length of the surf session: 1.5 min

Surfboard ridden: 6'2"

Fins: 4

Weather and water temp: 84F

Waves height: Less than 1m / 3ft

Waves Quality:
- Bumpy

Waves Shape:
- Close out

Description:

Beautiful, RAW beach. Not much surfing this time of year, though.

Fallen palm trees everywhere. At least they weren't floating around in the waves like I heard from before.

If you're going to go, make sure you go with another person because if you drown, no one will know. The whole time, the only signs of life I saw were wild dogs wandering, couple of fishermen that walked by.

Fortunately, I was acquainted with a local surfer there, Roberto, who drove me over to the beach early in the morning. Here's the scoop from him:

- There are probably only a crew of 10 surfers in the whole Punta Cana area

- On Macao, you need a minimum of 8 foot waves in the summer to form a break, and 2 foot waves in the winter to form a break. So come in the winter. Or bring a longboard in the summer.

- You can ride waves for 50+ seconds during the winter. 

- Punta Cana is considered the north-facing part of the Dominican as opposed to the south-facing side. The main differentiator are the hurricanes...hurricanes always strike the south-facing side of the island, not the north. The reason is because the Dominican has 2 tallest mountain ranges in the Carribbean on the center of the island: the Central and the Oriental. They form a barrier that keeps most hurricanes on the South Coast. This was true, as Hannah didn't touch Punta Cana, but slammed San Salvador on the South. So don't expect many hurricane waves in this region. 

As we left the beach, he spoke of a secret spot called Caligula (sp?) that is the best spot to find waves during the summer. Never saw it.

All in all, if you want to surf during year-round in D.R., go to Puerto Plata.
