Good Day

Well that was about as good as it gets...  Sun.  Waves.  Weather.  But lots of foreign rippers, a little hassling, and I surfed kinda like a kook (I blame an injured knee).  Still a grand day.  Cool to see all the stoke from the old dogs.  I hope I am that amped in 25+ years...

i salute you for not posting good pictures of already crowded spots. you should photoshop out the backgrounds so people can't tell what spot is what

does it matter? if you didnt already know what spot it was, how exactly would you figure it out....oh shit, looks like there is a large Canadian island in the back ground and a headland with some trees, and a rock...oh man, i saw that rock on google earth...it must be xxxx. Lets load the funboards on the Subaru and roll.

Precisely Anon #2. Deep in the confines of our inland headquarters digital lab, photos are analyzed for topographic features such as rocks, headlands, or other features. Viewsheds are also analyzed, recreated, then mapped to pinpoint precise locational data we can feed into our GPS devices for field reconnaissance. For example, one photo form a Seattle site we monitor gave a nice overview of a cobblestone left point with a radio tower on top. Using our in house high res aerial imagery from the 2005 NAIP flight, we were able to pinpoint this location and map our access routes. Shortly after this information was gathered a surf mission was planned and “the nugs” were scored. Although we have pinpointed most of the locations in the SoJDF, even reports without photos confirm swell event height, periods, and angles which is stored in our database the calcs a skunking factor for every winter swell. Although we are disappointed in the lack of quality photos in this post, we thank you Mr. Sasquatch for your cooperation in the past.

point grenville was shut down years ago with who knows how many good waves that are no longer accessible, neah bay will be next, probably in the next few years thanks mainly to overcrowding...they're not too stoked on all the people cruising around in the winter. its rad being able to stoke out between swells, i'm stoked on this cite, but thanks for not posting names of spots, and like i said in my 1st post, it's always a better idea to crop out the background...

also, if people, well the thousands of surfers that stumble upon websites like this one, know what spots broke on what day, they look at the bouys and go, "gee, I'll go there the next time the swells like that." Better to keep it on the DL what spot was surfed on what swell. Sooner than later, the spots that are still accessible, which will be few, are going to look like this http://il.youtube.com/watch?v=8dyyAG9o-v8&feature=related better to not speed up the process, us old timers use to surf alone.

Tastes good dont it?

Really? You can't even say it was good, without mentioning where?

Why the natives would shut down one of the few reasons for people to visit their land in the winter is a head scratcher to me. I know surfers don't bring much economic stimulus to the Makah, but they do stop for food and spend money on cabins and camping. Better than nothing. I don't know shit about tribal policy making and priorities though.

They shut down point Grenville years ago and hae never reopened it to surfers.

I live out here and heard on good sources that the natives are close to closing it down. They dont care about the commerce that it brings in, they will still alow surfing at hobuck. Just ticket you everywhere else you go. Try surfing point greenville the cops will pull there guns out on you.

Hmm... You never know. Best know some people then.

although, a few of the spots are over private land on the rez, and some are not owned by natives...
