Mark Wilder's latest adventure

Mark Wilder has been pretty into his most recent project somewhere in Mex. And I'm not being glib about the "somewhere" thing, he isn't really letting the cat out of the bag about this spot he's been going to. Rumor has it he blindfolded the last group to go down. Anyway, let him explain it: "Due to the discussions regarding secret spots @ six months ago on your "site".... I thought I'd give people out there something to get stoked on and chat about from the vid. Just wanted to let them know that Dave and I are back in Mex finishing the Second chapter in my upcoming flick and wanted to share w/ them what the happenings are w/ my vid and one of their own, Dave Begley, and what we've been up too....So if people are wondering where me and Dave have disappeared to... now they know. I'm just trying to keep the dream alive and let them know that if you try hard enough you just might find the the ultimate prize.... and for Surfer's ...that would be finding a world class point break all your own! Now we're back in Mex after exploring the surrounding area and coastline and now we're back to film it. I'll just let you write it uo so you can post it up w/ the vid at your convenience."

Alright WTF!

Jeez, Wyatt is a total slacker.  Pete is in Chile, I'm in Tally and he can't update the post?????  WTF!!!  Alright TC, who are our new posters?  I KNOW this post will motivate for a new one - ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!!!

BTW - Mark it - book it - lock it in.  Surfrider is bringing in Mike Watson from Surfline to do a seminar Thursday, March 27th - "The Science of Waves".  We're all jr. surf meteorologists and we'll get to hear from someone gettin paid to get it right.  Gonna be very cool.

Yeah, yeah, Wyatt - take your head out of Obama's @$$ and get to postin - punk! 

Forecast Pete

Get it whilst you can

I thought I'd update the page. Looks like another round of bread and butter SE wc.  I'm quite a ways from Soflo right now but judging from the reports and cams you guys are getting ridables.  Fowey showed a good 25knts for nearly 12 hours (yay). but has dropped to 20 knts S/SE since midday and the lower bouys had less winds in the 20 knts range. In other words get it today as it might not be around for tomorrow. Seems like the last few events the wind picks back up out of nowhere but i'll be very surprised if it happens a third time.  Later in the weekend there is an outside chance of bouncy swell but you all know how that has gone this year. Short NE chop event Sunday night into Monday. Proly not worth much except for desperados.  Very quiet pattern till 180 hrs out (next weekend).  Too early to tell but looks marginal at this time. I be one stoked mofo getting real waves down here in Chile. Surfed a solid swell overhead and clean at a fav point.  Funny thing was that the models had the surf at 6ft at 8 sec and it seemed more like 10ft at 12-14 sec. Pacific is so big even the backround swells have punch. 

Forecast Pete

Weak Winter

Here we go with a weak Winter and a Weak forecast. Don't  mean to be negative but this Winter has mainly been a non surfing Winter for many of us.  A couple of scraps here and there but not enough to feed our hungry surf appetites.  Maybe Spring will come thru. 

For the next few days the forecast is for 10-15 knt winds out of the NE thru Sunday and increasing slightly out of the E for Mon (15-20) going SE and improving things slightly. Tueday may bring half decent ridables with SE/S winds in that range which of course you all know works for SowBee. Further out a decent cold front comes in later in the week but the models don't show wave propagation patterns yet. Still might be worth keeping an eye on.  I'm headed to my every 3 month migration to Chile next week so maybe you'll get some when I'm gone. I'm stoked to go to a wave rich area even if it means putting on a fullsuit. SoPac has been firing this year (probably at our expense).  Lots of Surfrider events coming up so support and keep the positive vibes. Maybe King Neptune will reward us.
