Wax up your boards and put on your chaps I see a big one comin.

February 27, 2009

Well gang the days are getting longer…fast and there’s storms a brewing out west.  I see a very big storm developing  just south of the aleutians the first weekend of March, we should see it bumping into Kodiak probably around the 9th or 10th and then the mainland starting about Thursday the 12th.  I don’t know if we’ll be able to get the good spots easy here but Kodiakers and Homerites might have some great fun.  We’ve had very nice weather here this last week or two with Cannon Beach giving some suprisingly good surf…clean and head high.  I’m afraid it might be blown out with this big swell.  There’s always the skiff option to hit graveyard and the point.  Should be interesting.  We’re trying to figure out how to have a surf celebration this spring as it is our 10th year in business….any ideas would be appreciated.  

Anyway here’s shot of whats in store for us early next month.  Have a great March.

We took a trip down to Cannon Beach to see what was going on….not much in the way of waves but they were clean.

It’s been getting up into the lower 30’s and we’re gaining around 3 minutes a day in daylight so there is hope! 

Check out this website, some great shots of last fall:

Don’t have much to add this week so here’s another carving from NZ.
