SW at the Boiler
Well, the forecasts were on par yesterday with SW winds. It was a little lighter than expected in the marginal 5.3m range; however, the waves were fun and Charlie, Dan, Emo, and I, plus a bunch of surfers enjoyed some fun rides on the swell left over from H. Helene. Set waves were in the head high range and the optimium take off was just inside the Boiler smoke stack.
Winds are forcast today to be even stronger, and this morning (Sunday), the trees around my house are moving quite briskly! Hopefully, there is still some wave swell around, as it will most likely be another visit to the Boiler today!
Here are some photos from yesterday (Saturday):
