Re: Saturday October 15 2011

The plan has changed and we're headed to Lake St Beach which I am happy about because it's closer to home and hopefully smaller waves. Apparently Jeff didn't check out Lake St earlier, he heard that it was off shore. He did just check out MC and he said that it's almost tending towards on shore with...

Too much for me and WAY WAY WAY too much for lessons on Thursday afternoon and Friday. Very advanced riders should be the only ones possibly out and using extreme caution. If you are one of those - WOW - have fun, be safe and I'd love to see some photos! Saturday does look good for lessons along wit...
