Ernesto is coming! You may need to put away the Rum 'n Rootbeer and dust off the 3.0m :)

Anyone got a CHEAP 370cm mast they want get rid of? My 3.75 rigs like crap on a 430.

Looks like the updated path for Thursday is way out west. We now take you back to our regular scheduled no wind programming.

I understand that's it's pretty far out there and may not even come here but it's a chance I'm willing to wait for. :)

Yep, Alex, I think Charlie is right. Sorry. But, we may get some swell as we will likely be in the GOMex swell window, so SUP or surfing opportunities will be likely esp. further west. Or, it might change direction.

Unless it grows or changes direction you will need a bigger sail. "TROPICAL STORM FORCE WINDS EXTEND OUTWARD UP TO 105 MILES". Watch out for the system developing in the Bahamas or the next wave off Africa.

Or you could get the actual wind field here: http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/Storm_pages/ernesto2012/wind.html I hear the scientist who developed this is a windsurfer!
