I had a great “sick day” last Tuesday somewhere in lil Rhody, why not double down? The forecast looks great at this point but we are supposed to be enjoying another nor easter on Monday/Tuesday so keep an eye on that.

When offshore I carry both a phone and a vhf. The each have different benefits. The biggest plus to the vhf is that if you make a call it's likely that LOTS of people hear you. If you use a phone, only the person you calls gets it. I was off Sakonnet Point RI a few years ago and watched a large wave flip a 28' work skiff that was tied up in a very bad spot to an offshore lighthouse. Three workers got dumped and were swimming and unable to get back to solid ground. We called a mayday on the vhf. CG in Newport immediately answered but were not able to get to our position for I think about 45 minutes. But because most boats and local fire rescue departments monitor emergency channel 16 we had two private pleasure craft show up within 10 minutes. They were able to get the swimmers off our kayaks and out of the water. Middletown FD and Portsmouth FD both had boats there within 20 minutes. A phone call to a single agency would not have gotten that response that quickly.

so david levy is sup friendly??

I know there are several Levy shaped custom SUPs out there. Some of them might even have other brand's stickers on them. If you look close enough.  ;)

Most sites like this have a dedicated forum for politics and/or religion discussions. And there that shit stays.

I tried for years. I gave up, for all the problems listed above and more. I don't believe this is the place for it. I sold my 14' Bullet and I just surf now. If it's blowing like stink I play in the sea kayak with my crazy kayak crew. YMMV

I took the day off tomorrow. 3' @ 15 seconds with the offshore breeze should be about as good as it ever gets. Well 82 degree air temp and 72 degree water temp would be as good as it gets around here.

DW from Provincetown down to Barnstable or Scusset harbor would be epic.

If it wasn't so cold.
Stoney and I did it about 3 years ago in a nor easter not nearly as bad as this one. I think winds back then were about 40. I'll bet gusts in the bay yesterday were close to 90. It isn't epic, it's a friggin mess. You do not get rolling ocean swell in the bay, you get chaos because the water is trapped and refracts like crazy. I know you are only kidding but yesterday would have been suicide.

I live in westport, right next door. A few of us were doing them back about 5 or 6 years ago but have stopped. I even sold my SIC Bullet. We really don't have DW conditions here in south east New England. It SEEMS like the river would work great but it never did. The wind is always slightly off angle, never lining up with the "swell". The "swell" is never swell but rather very short period 1 to 2 foot wind chop. Do not expect anything at all like you see from Hawaii, it ain't like that. The wind REALLY needs to be thumping, like at least 30 knts to get any kind of push but even then you don't get any glide from the swell. That was my experience from trying for three years. YMMV Good luck

I'm wondering why you are not looking at the manually inflatable waist packs like the MTI Fluid 2 https://www.mtiadventurewear.com/products/sup/web400900000-fluid-20  This is a CG approved Type iii pfd. Once it's on you'll completely forget it's there. Almost all the paddlers I know wear this one. I love mine.

This response kinda applies to your "kids and SUP" post too. You might be suffering from what I call the "enthusiast syndrome". That's when someone gets interested and excited about something thinks it's the greatest thing since sliced bread and can't understand why everyone else doesn't feel the same way. I've been selling boards, renting out boards, and teaching SUP for 8 years now and find that most people really don't give a crap. If you step back and think about it objectively it really is a weird activity. Plus it is ridiculously expensive. Just enjoy yourself and be glad you like it. The other 43 of us who share your passion are right here for you.
