Monday 12/4

Gotta see what the rain does, but if it holds off later in the day I'll head for Bradford right after school. I should be there by 4 (with lights for after sunset)!

I am going to try to be there a little before then, but won’t be riding past dark.

I am unfortunately not up to a session yet, but close. If you do a late afternoon session, watch the wind closely, think the shift from south to west will take place rather quickly, and by that time the lake will be big. Wish I could join you!!!

Predictions show waves are expected to be 8 to 10 ft today. Yikes.

As long as the wind stays south it should make it easier to get out through the breakers. Getting munched in the shorebreak would be very uncool, but once you make it out, the big waves should be fun. Coming in through the break is usually much easier. Just stay ahead of the wave and match its speed.

I may not make it out today. I've got a cold (or flu) and don't feel real energetic right now. I'll see how I feel (and what the radar looks like) this afternoon. Sometimes a good cold water sinus blast actually helps get rid of a cold.

The wind and radar are looking really good, but I'm feeling really crummy. Frustrating, but I'm going to pass on today and try to get healthy.
