I wish i could.. but work gets in the way. I'd love to know how everyone else manages it.
I've definitely spent more time looking at forecasts than i have out on the water!

Is November a notoriously fickle month for weather, or is this normal?

November has been fickle the past couple of years. You could say this is normal

It does get better the closer to December we get tho, so don't despair Smile

We actually have not any wind here (Paracaru, Brazil) yet (only 1 day though) hopefully something later today.
No one can believe it, very very weird!!

There's potential tomorrow - not sure where though! Hopefully there'll be just enough southerly for Coney, otherwise it's a bit of a drive...

Where are you getting your wind forecast from Richie? And is it the most reliable in your experience?

It actually seems warmer than ever, warmer than the air temp especially when the sun started to go down.

Here's the weather we usually use.

It's marginal but I may just give it a try - not much else on the 'to do' list today! Have you left yet?

Disaster.....lost my board at Coney. Here's the irony - about 4 years ago when I bought a new board, I went down to Coney and lost it.....

This time the issue was that as I went upwind on the body drag, I completely lost site of the board and on a grey dark day like today it just couldn't be seen.

Richie - thanks for search efforts and the lend of the binos.

The board will probably wash up in Senegal or somewhere.....eventually.

I think I may avoid doing 'tricks' out the back in the future and keep it close to the shore. That and luminous paint for the board.

Oh Shit! Sorry to hear that Mike, but I feel your pain.  I lost mine about 6 weeks ago, not turned up yet, well, not turned up to ME yet.  I had a Sea-ID sticker on it with my email and phone. Been checking on eBay, but nothing so far.   Hope you have more luck than I have.

Thanks mate! I can't even put it down to experience....I missed it by 3 inches on my first pass, turned around and just couldn't see it...weirdly if it had been in swell the waves would have turned it over and I could have spotted it but it was just so grey. C'est la vie.

Heaven knows where it is now - I may go back to using 'Go Joe'. Looks naff but having a nice fluorescent marker has its advantages....

Today (Fri) will be good at Coney and cross shore, currently 19mph on the meter at Rest
Tomorrow (sat) go to Rest Bay as wind forecast to turn SW but it looks lightish 12 - 18mph and dropping past midday...
