I think some days are better than others Posted by: lalleluia on Sep-27-12 4:36 PM (EST)
While I agree with all that has been said, and Celia's advice is always spot on, I do think not so good days can be predicted to some extent.
What is the wind speed in the weather forecast? Most TV forecasts will tell you or use Weather.com. Under 10mph is nice, under 5 is very nice. 10-15 can be fun once you are up for it, as can be 15-20 if you can deal with it. Above 20 should be avoided, as well as small craft advisory days. Thunderstorms in the area or off shore tropical storms or hurricanes can also affect conditions. I found all these can be found in an ordinary weather report.
Have fun and be safe,
