Oh Mac's do have problems?


My MacBook Pro 17 inch from 2008/9 started acting up a few nights ago. The display went dark randomly and sometimes required a reboot. A trip to the Apple Store eliminated a covered Invidea chipset issue, but identified a dying mother board. I was pretty sick about it considering the $2,800 price tag on the machine. Then the Genious Bar guy said Apple offers a flat fee fix-it program whereby Apple will fix anything and everything for $310.00!

It will be back in my hands by next Wednesday at the latest.

Probably not a day for a wave newbie to try nahant ?
Winds would be offshore, correct ?


I am also a newbie on waves and went out yesterday at Nahant. I had a Starboard Kombat 97L and an ezzy wave 5.2. Little bit hard to get out past the shore break but the side offshore wind really helped. A few sailors out there were killing it. I caught a few real waves yesterday for the first time. Really good felling! Cool

So funny really....people are screaming at each other at Hookipa for room to sail, and here, we can't add enough folks

i blew my mind how good Nahant was. I just missed it. New England has so much potential and spots. Im starting to get nervous.

Not to be a stoke killer but it was a little creepy for me sailing yesterday @ Area 51. After all this picture of a 15 ft great white was taken right where we were sailing...... Shocked
I never missed an outside jibe. Not that it matters because this shot was not taken "outside" Crying or Very sad
Great shot of PK!!!!
Some real long down the line rides if you went way outside and pinched way up wind you could go down the line for 1/4 of a mile and then take a ripping ride on speed beach for a 1/4 mile speed run 10ft off the beach on a broad reach of butter! (one tack)
Claudio!!!! Stoked you got out in the waves!!!!

side off is a bit tricky at first. side off winds add to the push of the incoming wave. stay big on the board down size the sail as you see the wind become more offshore. until you become more accustomed to sailing side off. then tweak the board size after you've had 10+ sessions, if you want. another rule of thumb, if you are lit on the way out in side off, have a bevy of techniques to hide the sail's power at will, or go right back in and down size to your next one down.

hurricane irene, i used a 5.8 until the wind wore me down as it picked up. went to a 4.7, which was perfect while wave riding, and a bit small going back out. waves were well overhead and the wind was side then slightly side off. same kind of building wind going from side to side on, i'd have stuck it out with the 5.8, and probably just tightened the sail a bit. never strayed from my exo-wave 105 pro.

Nervous? About what? I hope Evans's posts about sharks doesn't shake you up. There's a great white out there with his number on it, but not yours.
