    Yesterday and today looked pretty sweet. But you're right here it comes! I was at Rye Bch this morning with the dog and the place was packed! I'm just learning to surf and although I will enjoy such days in the years to come I'm still on the bunny slope! Enjoy!

    I already posted these in the EC Roll call...But it makes sense to post here also.. Just spent a couple days in Maine getting my surf fix, wish i could have stayed longer. Hope someone gets some pics when Danielle gets closer... A friend took these of me on Tuesday.

    HA: Nice! Shots look Goochsesque?

    MPPG: Probably saw you in the water at Higs - when were you out? I put in a couple hours in the morning and thought it seemed a bit off.

    I think the key this weekend will be avoiding the crowds, as the weather looks like it will be great too, and winds might cooperate nicely.

    Dude, I saw you, for sure - think I might have even said hi? On a big blue longboard, and I'm also bald. Yes, I am thinking mid-coast.

    Definitely.

    no jinx. You have a pretty kind set up. Earl will be running up I already churned up waters and further east. Besides this morning's run has an interesting retrograde. Hell, maybe not Gabrielle perfect, buit should be pretty good considering then summer you've had.

    I don't remember Joey. But it was 15+ years since I was in those parts. Most of the names are gone, but the faces I recall.

    Btw, I could edt my post. I just figured it was still no where land. Most of the best spots further south beteeen York and Kbunk still never get surfed
    and are in plain sight. Last time I was around, a Wells local told me
    Firehouse was never surfed because it was believed to be too much of a paddle and shollow rocks. And this is the best ledge north of rye. Might even be better.

    Music to my ears, And don't worry about giving up secrets on the TGR surf forum, I'm pretty sure only about 5 people read this

    Looks like RI will be the place to be for Earl. Perhaps starting Thursday. LI may be too far west to get the best, and Earl may be too far west to get much north of the cape (according to this morning's run of the models). On the plus side, he is looking to stay strong as he drives up the coast. May be a stormy next weekend for NE.

    The LI bouy has a spectral of 2.1@12.5. That should be a good chest high wave. And tht profile looks so clean.


    And this map suggest some swell filling in today


    Gulf of ME buoy forecast shows some mid period all week


    Best of luck with the fill in and glassy waters. And a verbal report from a friend in ME. He had fun earlier today.

    THURSDAY 8/26

    thursday morning was really good at the wall despite fucked up bars. thank god there was enough size at a lower tide for the outer bars to really work.

    this morning was super fun at the honey hole with just a few of us out with long little rippable hittable zipper lefts. around the point tho wuz a zoo!

    back for more in the am. same spot, lost round nose fish weapon of choice. nice pics from thurs btw!

    Today was much, much better in Maine than either of the weekend days. Swell finally seems to have shown up, and winds were quite cooperative this morning. On Saturday am, I counted 80 plus people in the water. Crowds much more manageable today.
