Good Chance I Will Break The Surfing Marathon Record by Thursday

October 19th, 2011 by Kurtis

Hey friends,

The wave models are still “long range” as I write this post. However, I understand enough about the ocean and our North Florida weather to begin a serious assessment ten days out. A cold front could hinder my chances at a qualified attempt Friday/Saturday, October 28-29. What’s intriguing are the potential waves for mid next week (October 26-27). Models indicate an easterly swell at eight second period — probably waist to chest high. This is what I want. This is how I will have the most confidence I can break the record.

For the non-surfers — In order for a surfer to remain in the same location for an extended period of time without “extensive paddling” the waves need to be coming straight into the beach. Beginning Tuesday, October 25, waves build slightly and set up for what I will call “good marathon surfing.”

Thursday (tomorrow) we have a final logistics meeting. I will let everyone know the plan asap.

It’s a lot to ask but we need to be fluid over the next couple days.
Thanks for your support.
Call me direct if you can offer advice or have ideas about the potential date change.
