Yep!--CB is looking mighty fine Sat and potentially EPIC on Sunday too. I'll probably surf both days. Woot!

For those of y'all sea boaters going to play in the surf, here's a link to surf etiquette tips.
http://www.asudoit.com/kayak_fest/surf_etiquette.html

Basically,  the rider taking off closest to the breaking wave has right-of-way.
When heading back out, try to steer clear of folks surfing. Not cool to be in their surfing path.

CB's really popular especially on the east side by the island (the kayak magnet!). Overall, on a pumping day, there're lotsa board surfers, surf kayakers (in ww and surf boats like myself), sometimes sea kayakers, and other misc wave riders. We all know long sea boats are less maneuverable but quickly pick up speed compared to the shorties so just watch out for each other b4 taking off, ya?  :-)

I'm sure many of you know all this already, but I just wanna bring it up as I've had close-calls from my own fellow buds and locals so I just want everyone to be safe and have fun.

Get stoked!

For those of you that might be equipped year round paddlers and want to go have some surf and or current fun, I'm headed to Crescent Beach, west of Port Angeles, on Saturday for sea kayak surfing and then to Deception Pass on Sunday for current play.

Crescent should be pretty good considering the swell report ad a rising tide for the afternoon and DP is peaking at 11:24am at 6.4 knots. I shove off at 930am from Bowman.

Drysuits, a solid roll, and "ready to go" tow systems as usual please. These are not places for the ill equipped.

Just show up if you have all of the above.
