Kelly Slater, 10 time world champion and other top surfers are coming to Long Island, chasing a million dollar purse, the Times reports. I remember trying to surf on a heavy 11 foot surfboard at Gilgo Beach.
I wasn't the swimmer that my brother Peter was. When I could catch a wave I had only a few seconds of fun as the board slipped down the wave face - no fancy turns, etc. But I got a glimpse of what fun it could be. I have seen the surf at Rincon Point near Santa Barabara and seen the kind of conditions in which Kelly Slater is featured here.
Windy Weather - Conditions out at the Cape Edgecumbe buoy are fierce today. Could be worse though, the other day I saw there were 50+ foot seas south of the Alaska pennins...
