Sorry for the negative vibes but I had post this in the public interest.
I just got back today Friday 7/6/2012 from what was supposed to be an extended weekend at Cape Lookout where I have had fun in years past on occasion camping. Having not been there in several years I called the ferry services: that service the Cape Lookout area to ask if they could still run me with my camping gear and kayak, this…Continue
Okay, time to see who the REALLY dedicated windsurfers are.... Just kidding, but it should be pretty good this afternoon and tomorrow with forecasted 15-25 and higher gusts. Yes, it's going to be chilly, but if there's any consolation, the water is really warm. I'd say in the lower 60's in Blythe Cove. I'll try to leave work early today. If the gates are closed, the dogs are probably out back. If open, we've put them in the house.
GReat first day! Head high surf. 4-5 turns 5.5 sail and 90 liters.
Terrible internet connection. Will try photos tomorrow.
Been pulling my hair out waiting for wind. Got bit by the sailing bug pretty bad and am anxious to keep going. I did get used gear, and figured I could tweak it up while I wait for the wind. Looking to see what you all have suggestions for rigging rope, and where to buy.

The maps are staying surprisingly consistent. I hope they hold. If they do, the weekend should be really nice at the coast for NE winds. If I go, I'll probably head down Friday evening and sail all day Saturday. Doubtful I can stick around Sunday.
Mac and I got in early afternoon yesterday. Awesome first day at Baja with chest to head 95ltr 4.5 Ezzy. We took an hour bike ride to the badlands at sunset and then woke up this morning to the best SUP session we have had... I had just caught a wave and was paddling back up when I watched Mac slashing on a monster. A fan base of around 5-6 seals was enjoying watching the show. Hope to get some shots out soon....not many yesterday as too busy having fun. Will keep you posted.
Will try to post pics and reports: http://thewaterturtle.blogspot.com/2011/08/baja-or-bust.html
