Snowpocalypse Snowmageddon Is Coming! Weep with fear...

It's just one big hashtag out there, as forecasters try to come up with names for what I suppose will be a very big snow. A blizzard. "Like nothing we've ever seen" the NYC Mayor has been said to have...

Chimps Get Some At Sebonac

Peconic Jeff reports on this January 5th sesh: "4.2 session at Sebonac: myself, George Pav (pictured), Scott, the Wolf and whoever else showed up after I left. Temps in the 30’s, gusts in the 40’s, and a passing snow shower...

New Year's Resolutions, 2015

For nary a decade I've been posting New Year's Resolutions for the coming water year. The lists have varied from long and detailed to "the unaimed arrow never misses" (no resolutions...just sail.) This year I want some goals. Here they...

Wave Envy

Jeff Schultz captured at Nauset Beach (MA) a few days ago. Looks like my 2014 season is over, but I'm hoping to get back on it in January! In the meantime I'll look at this photo and dream. Photo swiped...

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! Looking forward to seeing you on the water in 2015. The image is from a favorite Christmas card, which says "original design by Roz Davis". We thank Roz every year (Thanks Roz!)

I'll Be Back In The Water Soon

"When are you back in the water?" Scott texted me. I haven't sailed or paddled in six weeks, largely due to being on the wrong end of a knife in a dark alley. There were three of them...you should see...

Crazy Perfect Waves for SUP and Surf

The thrice-might Dasher (my jibe guru, brother in heartfelt video, and OG Santa reindeer) took this shot recently at Palm Beach. Don't you want to be there? I do!

Air Santa

With Christmas fast approaching, Santa is working on his jumps (presumably coached by Dasher.) Yeah he's got the reindeer to get him and the sleigh around, but with all the supersized gifts those reindeer butts are draggin' by the time...

Nappy Nuker

Jeff reports on a sesh I missed last week: "...chose to brave face-pelting rain & sail the nuking nor'easter at Napeague with Scott, Frank, Bruce & the Wolf. I rode 4.2/86L fully sheeted out, and should have been on 3.7...

Puffin Under the Knife

I tried to take a selfie but all the rigging kept my arms from getting the extension necessary. Had some issues in the nose (stringer needed work, also some delamination here and there. Scott said "Hey I do that kind...

Meschutt Outer Space Sesh

Say what? Chatting with the Wolf on Friday as we discussed how long it had been since our last session at Meschutt, I brought up the time one of our sessions was caught by Google's satellites for Google Maps. He...

Return to Meschutt

"We haven't sailed here in years," the Wolf said. It's true. Between Hurricanes Sandy and Irene, and conditions, we hadn't sailed the fine NW launch since Spring 2011. "And they screwed up the beach" Scott noted. Something about stones and...

Robbie Gets A Round of Applause...

"Robbie gets a round of applause from nature." That's what Christian wrote when he shared this photo of 1111, taken by Mr. Carter. Just beautiful! Courtesy PWA World Tour.

Nuclear Options

Big winds, y'all. Saturday on Gardiners Bay, launching from Goff Pt. it was 4.2's ville with the occasional 3 meter wing. I arrived after peak conditions ("you missed it!" I was warmly chided) but still got to join Jon Ford,...

Scott's Weekend Forecast: Gardiners Saturday, Iron Pier Sunday

NOAA says it's gonna happen! Scott thinks the call is Goff (launch at Napeague Lazy Point, reach and tack up to the sand bar betwixt Napeague and Gardiners Bay, portage across, launch in the Land of the Giants!). Sunday a...

Barecrow Scarecrow

Leave it to the big bad Wolf to use an old drysuit as a scarecrow at his nursery. Thanks to Jeff Schultz for the photo and the post suggestion!

Return to Iron Pier

Just a few days ago at the Vanderdome we were lamenting the lack of Iron Pier sessions. Iron Pier is epic because you only go there when conditions are epic, and the Pier serves it up! Never sailed Iron Pier?...

Scott Keeps Breaking Them Boards

Joe reclines on Scott's latest bustage (at Goff's north o'Napeague). I'm sure his fin is benefiting from the experience. Oh wait... (Photo from the Earl of Kielt's Facebook page).

Sunday Funday?

The coastal marine forecast is calling for 15-20 gusting to 30 on Sunday. The iWindsurf computer models also smile upon the Sabbath. From the west What say ye, men of wind and water? Sebonac? Mayhaps the ocean if it goes...

Sebonac Tonic

Why wasn't Bill rigging? Or Hulse or Scott? "We're waiting for you to leave. Or at least release your downhaul" Ah. They wanted more wind. I was on the early shift at Sebonac Inlet. Needing to accompany Mrs. Puffin back...
