Jim, NO Problem man, I'm glad I was there to grab your board and get you back to the beach in the "playpen"..

I had a really good session, rode a LOT unhooked, AND for the first time ever rode strapless on Jeff's skim board creation!! That thing was pretty dang cool Jeffy!

I'm going to try to hit Warren Dunes tomorrow..

I know it's been mentioned countless times, but doesn't it just make more sense to ride Zion on a N and Waukegan on a S? Then you're not riding upwind of a jetty

Waukegan on a south is kinda rare but when it comes it is usually sweet. Straight North is better for Zion but NE and all is good for Waukegan. Zion's sand is course not to mention small rocks also the beach falls off pretty sharp meaning it gets deep, fast. Waukegan has a lot of sand bar, soft sand and stays shallow, longer. Most people stay away from the Getty but there are a couple who just don't learn :roll: cough, cough...

Polo


BTW- If I obtained an oxyacetylene torch could I cut the rebar from the Getty?

I have a small oxyacetylene tank set up. If I can get to that re bar you are talking about 10' of my own hose but if I borrow some from work I could get to about 50' of hose.

Can I see or get near that re bar and stay dry? If there is a low tide or maybe no waves it will be a lot easier to cut. So would a cordless reciprocating saw which is much lighter too.

I was thinking the same, saw might be easier but that is some hard shit and around 1" in dia would take a bit. If the setup is small enough might be able to wheel it down the getty but it would have to be a calm day or use an umbrella?

Polo.

Yea that is thick. My torch setup will work I can put the bottles in a big backpack and if I can walk up on it it would be best. With the torch is will be a smoother cut with a blade or saw it will have a very sharp point.
