FOR ALL THE PEOPLE AT THE CITY COMMISSION MEETING THAT WANTED TO SEE THIS

UPDATE: Hey Wyatt, sorry to bust in on your thread but these are HUGE! Not only does City of Miami Beach deserve props for addressing the trash issue. They also, UNANIMOUSLY,passed a resolution opposing offshore drilling! It's attached to this thread.

Oh yeah AND Slater wins Trestles - that makes 5 of 7 contests this year - heading for a 9th world title!

Fun chop session 5 to 6:30 last evening. Thanks to the City Board of Commissioners for taking a break right before the litter issue was read so we could get some. After decades of neglect, Commissioner Libbin is leading the charge to stop litter on the beach and Miami Beach in general. ABOUT TIME!

Ike WC is here

  Ike sitting below us and churning.  Barely a cat 1 but with an expanded windfield of TS force winds.  Winds still East around here but slowly turning SE (already 100 deg) . That turn should continue all day . Wind speeds sustained in the lower 30's in our area and near 40's below us in the Keys.  More of the same monster chop we saw yesterday but with more underlying windswell.  Partial cleanup as the winds turn more SE.  No S or SW winds predicted so a complete cleanup not expected.  Tomorrow should be the cleanest day as the SE winds drop . Further out IKe restrengthens in the GOM and sends a nice swell to the West coast (he'll be moving slow enough to send a decent swell). That should last into the weekend but drop off Sunday as Ike moves in Texas (based on current Tracks).  If I wasn't headed to South America I would def be headed over to the west coast again. I'm almost bummed to be leaving when the home turf has served up plenty of excellent surf but it will be tempered by the fact spring time is the best time of year down in Chile ( 10 ft at 16 sec slated for Thursday).  It's turned out to be a great season around here and I hope it continues. We are still due for a clean swell in our area.

Enjoy   Smile
