Sweet skimmin conditions.

Did you hear about the HUGE (25 ft+) WNW swell supposedly coming Tuesday-Wednesday!!

That might make for some fun ones too!

Water's about 55 right now. There was a pier there so there are pilings (look and feel like rocks) everywhere. In that photo, on a lower tide I would be on top of one.

Yep, that's the swell forecast that I posted above the picture. I'll be taking a really long lunch.

Great. That just makes it sound scarier. Please be careful, I'm sure we would all miss hearing about your 'nieghbor on a swing' if something horrible happened to you. ;)

I'm hitting at the community courts at 5 tonight. If you're in the hood stop by and say hi.

And break our streak of never meeting despite living within a few miles of each other? NEVA!

Depends on how long the DC matches last, yes I am being a complete couch potato for them. I have to run some errands after that, so if you see a pear shaped figure with BIG HAIR wandering around, that is me. I will not be there to hit.

Are you going to volunteer to clean up the bay?
I heard you need a week or two for hazard training.
A lot of places are filled up.

What was the story regarding concerns voiced by NOAA and the Coast Guard regarding further potential damage caused by the skimmers?
