  • The WSL is coming back to town. And they're bringing the loggers! I hope we get some decent waves, but already it's looking like a quiet start to the season. Prove me wrong, mother nature!


    Will there be a trials contest beforehand? Any local log legends competing?

  • Makes sense to aim for that window. With the stats that the ASP/wSL have via Surfline, that is the peak window for waves. I suspect we will have some. It doesn’t take much to push a log.

  • All is true...but it's not a question of if, but what quality...already it's a late start to the season. On good years, our first storm pulse arrives by August 24th. And we're not seeing anything off Cape Verde at the moment, so long period is looking unlikely, but still possible. Extra warm waters and warm temps could mean a later start than usual. Just a northernly disturbance on the pond named Chantal as our only hope...channeling the spirit of the quickpro...my wish is the contest has to go on hold because it's too big...they saaaaaay I'm a dreamer....

  • Oh and the quikpro was sick. It was really special to see the pros duke it out in front of us.

    And it was equally impressive to watch the locals going all out and taking greater risks 1 jetty over.

  • Well, well, maybe we’ll see some energy from Dorian. Things could be shaping up.

  • With that Saturday forecast, WSL might've struck gold twice in LB. Wonder if they'll try to squeeze most of it in on Saturday--finals on Sunday? Or a wild day on Friday, then finals on Saturday?


    How many days does it take to run the Longboard contest? Two? Threeeeee?

    my question too...depends on the waves and how many/how long the heats run for.  i think there are 4 man heats? anyone know? my crude math adds up to about 12-15hours of heats 2, maybe 3 days max
