Greys Reef buoy is bobbing around at 4ft with a 7 sec period at present.
Winds will decrease somewhat for Saturday but stay southerly, wave height will decrease, extending the wave period slightly and cleaning up the waves.
This is a near perfect forecast for this event which is really aimed at introducing paddlers to competition surf as a way of improving skill level and continued enjoyment of the sport.
We have twenty three contestants for the jam.
If you are not signed up we will see you next year.
Registration is now closed... there are no walk ups.
L3/L4 Surf Kayak class this morning at 9am....also full .
Old students are welcome to join us.

We got an email from them a few days ago looking for paddling and logistics info regarding the Ga coast. We were more than happy to oblige.
Almost 10 years ago to the day a similar young couple were just starting out on a through paddle from Wisconsin to Florida (sound familiar). Although we never emailed anyone, we did receive a lot of assistance from strangers along the way and it did make the trip all the more interesting.
The intrepid couple are on Tybee for a few days before taking on the challenge of the Ga coast.
We wish them a bon voyage.
Follow their trip here...

To understand how our coast was formed, what forces affect it, and how its diverse habitats influence the wildlife that live there, please join Ogeechee Audubon on Tuesday, October 20, for a presentation by John "Crawfish" Crawford.
John is a highly knowledgeable and entertaining speaker with a wealth of information and tales to share. He is a Marine Science Education Specialist at the Skidaway Island Marine Extension Service, part of the University of Georgia. His talk and slide show are entitled "A Dynamic Stability: The Nature of the Georgia Coastal Region."
The program begins at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, October 20 at the First Presbyterian Church, 520 E. Washington Avenue. No reservations are necessary and the program is free and open to the public.

On the 31st of October we will depart on a kayak trip that will take us along the front of all 13 of Georgia's barrier islands. On this coast, the dominant natural force is the tide. Like a heart pumping blood through the body's vital organs, Georgia's tides pump a tremendous volume of water in and around the barrier island, into the sounds, and the marshlands. Life has adapted to and become dependent on this natural process in ways great and small. For 10 days we shall become a part of that process.
