Thanks for the report! I only got out for about an hour on Friday night, at Duxbury, in dieing winds. I was wishing I could have gotten out in the better winds. Where did you sail in Nantucket sound?

If Oregon Beach or Popponesset Beach are mostly local only spots, outsiders not encouraged, then skip this message. I dont want to intrude on anyones secret spot. Since you mentioned them they probably arent. What are the conditions like? Any waves, sandbars, or anything special? Im always looking for better places to get waves, chop etc. I was really starting to enjoy the little waves at the tip of Great Island/ Kalmus this summer until I took a fin out on a rock. Now Im back to looking for new sites for jumping/ waveriding.

Try West Dennis. Sail out to the small rock island, waves can build on both sides. No boulders to worry about, like Kalmus, and nearly identical wind.
The more southerly, the bigger the waves.

Yeah, everyone says go to West Dennis for waves but it usually seems like more of a chop hopping site to me. Maybe I just havent hit the right combo of strong wind, tide and swell. The little wave right inside the rock island would be great if it were a little bigger and longer. The chop can get big out by the fish weirs, good for jumping, but hard to work on wave riding. I love the conditions at Chapin in northwest to northeast, although I always wish the waves were a little bigger and better formed. I dont know a good site for summer southwest thermal type wind & waves.

How about today! Sunday, Oct. 29, gusting to 50 around here, North Falmouth.
Not for me, let the youngsters have these conditions. Whew.
Have fun,
Jane
