Beautiful waves! How light was it? It looks still pretty warm, too.

As I read this I'm getting even more excited for our next cold front, scheduled to hit this afternoon. Hopefully some wave sailing here later today (Texas)!

FUN sesh!

Definitely bonus to have the Sealion for no wind insurance when making the drive from Nags Head to Frisco to catch some fun long line DTL surf!

Perfect example sesh of light/near no wind SUP wavesailing! Very Happy

PS: Water was mid 70s and air with sun equated to Trunks Only! I had two mil top, but was unnecessary.

SEALION
Looks like great conditions down there, see some of you in April with any luck.
Here is the XL in 8-15 mph wind. Get quite a few days out when there's no crowd, too windy for surfers, not enough to windsurf. I will get the 83 next year.

That's interesting that 8-15 is considered "too windy for surfers" there! There are lots of surfers even in 20+ mph here. It's ok, of course...I love to see people out enjoying the waves...but sometimes it would be nice to have the pick of waves and no one to look out for Smile. Here it's more the cold that really thins out the surfers, so in the winter we are pretty wide open to sail wherever we want.

8-15 ONSHORE and they will be at a different beach. If it's offshore the wind doesn't bother them. I shared the water that day with surfers, but they mostly like a different break.

It get's cold in texas ?

lighter winds offer far less chop. side off sand light winds are so much fun, yet most wave sailors don't bother? crazy.
