I really can’t believe this. I just clicked on the old Weather Channel link to the “Beach and Boat Forecast” for Nantucket and got a “page not found” error. Such a bummer. That page was really good. It broke down the wind forecast by hour. When I checked their website that page was nowhere to be found. But I did find the “Hair Cast” (sponsored by Pantene) which tells you how the weather will effect your hair.
The “specialty” forecasts available now are “Farming”, Fishing, “Hair Cast” and “Cold and Flu”. Seriously. Actually I checked the : “Fishing” page and you can still turn on wind and show a decent graph of the wind forecast for the day. But still. That old page was ten times better.
On a more positive note after being off for almost 2 weeks and missing a few gems I’m sure, this past weekend was decent with an end of the afternoon flat water session on Sunday at Pocomo and then Monday morning at Madaket. The ocean was big and clean but the wind was sketchy and if really got me freaked out. I had to cut my session short. Juraj fared better and got a more decent session.
A serious cold snap is upon us but hopefully we will be back in action soon.
