Any sailing surfers out there?

This fall I hope to depart from the Annapolis area on a little surfing trip. Destination is unknown still.

Are there any sailing surfers out there??

One blog that may be of interest to you is Liz Clark and s/v Swell, her Cal 40.  She's a pro surfer that took up sailing to be able to get to some of the more remote surfing spots...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Count me in. Grew up in Ocean City NJ. Sailed/raced offshore and intercollegiate. Started surfing when I was 12 but sort of stopped at about 25 once I had a job 50 miles from the water. The waves weren't ready when I was, but the ocean was always there to be sailed upon. I last surfed in 2000 at San Onofre State Beach. I spend a lot of time in Hawaii and it's tempting but the ride is way faster, I'm way slower, and the bottom is coral which I rather see by scuba.

Dude, you need to read the Fight Club thread. Surfesq, the originator of the thread, was the original surfer/sailor on Sailnet.

Sailingdog - Thanks for the info! I just checked out her blog and will definitely follow it.

SabreMan - You're welcome to come along. Still in the OC area? I lived there for a summer right on 22nd & Asbury. Now I head up to LBI (Beach Haven) on the weekends.

Smackdaddy - Thanks! I'm gonna check out that thread now.

My son and I surf. He's surfed every week this calendar year -- in NY no less.

He's frequently checking surfline for spots along our cruising area (NY to MA).

Regards,
Brad

The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

Nice! I've never surfed anywhere north of NJ. Some friends tell me Rhode Island is pretty fun.

Hey Dolby!

Hopefully I'm just a few months behind you. Any spots picked out in the Bahamas? I'd eventually like to head to Panama. I was there in September and could have probably gotten lost there for a year or two. Santa Catalina over on the west coast had a lot of nice breaks.

Amazing! My parents had a house between 22nd and 23rd on West Ave. My mother sold the house about 10 years ago after my father died. She didn't want the upkeep anymore and West Ave got busy and noisy.

I misread your timeframe. I'll be about 5000 miles west in the fall (Kauai).

Good luck!
