Small surf for SUP 730am-10am @ Wreck Beach. Unless Halibut bank drops to 0.5m or below. ;)

Thanks GB! What are the chances of a after-work session?

Hope you had a good session this morning Gabriel. Way too early and too cold for me ( 4 degrees! ) glad I slept in. I forgot to ask, where are you getting your HB wave height forecast, is it Magicseaweed?

I find 5/4 wetsuit with 5mm gloves/booties is good for 3 hour of surfing (at 4 degrees). I wear 6/5/4 wetsuit, 7mmgloves,5mm booties (it's like summer for about 5 hours).

Thanks for the post GB. HB 0.7 at 4 pm - it would be interesting to see what that looks like. Too slow off the mark - ran out of daylight. :(

Yeah thanks for the heads up Gabriel. Unfortunately I screwed my back this weekend which meant losing a decent Acadia day and some Sup surf potential. Hopefully next time is sooner than later.

Managed to get to wreck beach 515 to 620pm. No wind, rolling waves coming in, colorful sunset. Waves were fun, bigger, with some ride. Sorry, the 0.7 HB sneaked up on me(like the 1/2 hour of 24 knot wind kiters got at 3pm).
