Fun in the sun - really didn't need a wet suit, let alone my thermobombflash 4/3 thing... but will need this up north, so needs must.  Nice friendly vibe in the water - being fat and unfit I stayed away from the main point, but still had some relly fun walls

left point - Nice first time out at the spot.  There we about 10 people out when I parked, but by the time I had my westuit on, walked up the beach and paddled out (its a medium length paddle) there was just one guy out.  A boat load of grom showed up,

2 days of strong winds and surf - May 23 and 24 a strong front moved through with 35-50 mph winds. Started out of the SW on Tuesday and then moved W and NW on Wednesday. Got a late 60 min session in on Tuesday night in 30-35mph winds, crazy hard to stay standing and in the takeoff

WINDY AS F***, BUT A COUPLE OF LONG RIDES MIXED IN - About 5pm I looked at the Cherry Point wind report and it showed 31 mph winds and 35 mph gusts. I checked the Birch Bay webcam and sure enough I could see white waves at the point. I grabbed the 10’6″ SUP and rushed down to

- Had missed a couple of days of waves in Jan and Feb but today in late February Seaman Spit started working. We had snow in the morning so it was cold but the tide and winds were just right to offer up some 2-3ft well formed walls that peeled all the

From Jul 13, 2011 to Jul 19, 2011
June 16th had morning sickness bad (almost skipped it), but the wind just disappeared and it glassed off.  Turns out waves were waist to head and the tide was high enough to connect all the way to the inside. Summer crowd was there, but I was pa

- I couldn't live farther from the tropical beaches I grew up with. As my dissertation writer says, 'Surfing is not about going down a wave gracefully. It's about the freedom to be challenged infinite times.'

Actually, I've watched some really good surfers, but the most courageous ones I've ever seen are the surfers on Lake Superior during a winter snowstorm with water temperature near freezing and air temperature around 10 above. Lake water have lower buoyancy, waves are erratic and come every few seconds. It's no wonder that Lake Superior surfing is one of the most difficult ones.
