Link to your best picture in this thread if you have one.

I think that so far mine is the center one of this set:
http://SportToday.org/

(Hatteras this June, 5.8, Hifly 266.  The picture is zoomed, then
zoomed by computer, so it's pixelated some.)  I know I've been higher,
but I'll take what I can get.  I hope to get some good pictures of this
last weekend from my brother and post them sometime, maybe a video too.

4.9 to 6.6 all weekend on the Eastern Shore, ***ia.

Later, link if you can please, it might be difficult but choose a "best
one."  ;-)

I can't quite decide on any one picture so here are four.

These two are from the July long weekend in the gorge taken at the wall
on a 4.2.

These were taken in August during two epic morning sessions at Swell
City, 3.7/4.2.

It was a great summer in the Pacific Northwest.

I don't have a lot of pics, but here's an old one from a good day in
the gorge, overpowered on my 3.7 Ezzy, midway through a forward loop...

Prob with Tom's Cove is it can be pretty shallow.  I grew up on
Chincoteague; my Dad and I use to take our superlights w/ the
retractable skegs out ther on occasion and "boing" along at times. He
owned the Island Sailing Center on S.main st (next to Capt.Bob's boat
rental), so we normally just sailed there on runs over towards the
Queen Sound Bridge You might have limited acces also due to Piping
Plover infestations.  I haven't sailed there in bout 15 years, cond.
could be a bit different now.

It's a backwoods sort of place called Nandua Shores, next to Cedar
View.  I think it is farther south than Tom's Cove.  Developement is
going pretty fast up and down the coast as it seems to be some of the
last waterfront land available. My dad built a nice beachhouse there
and the lots around it went from selling for 60,000 to around 160,000
in the same year.  He wishes that he bought them.

259,000 now:

Sheesh.

If you're ever in the area you can use our beach to launch (email mynym
at comcast.net) there's deep and shallow water right in front of it
depending on the tides.  There's always a chanel there though.  One of
these days I'll get my brother out in the bigger part of the bay in his
boat to take some pictures at a spot where there's real breakers for
some real jumps.  ;-)

Those are some good ones. That spot worked so well this year for a
period of time.

I had a chance to watch it for three/four straight days from the beach. I
think I'll rent a house on the beach next July....

You may end up driving a lot if you do stay there. This was one of the
best years at Face in a long time. It blew so much up there I was
missing days and not even worrying about it.
This guy from Maui (Jeff Southerland) just happend to showe up one day
and it blew his mind how good it was. You should have seen it that day.
Big walls that held up for super long rides and throwing hard but in an
orderly manner. Best waves I've ever ridden there and this guy just
lucks out and hits it. I'd say he'll be back.
There is one guy from Portland who rents a place on the beach there
every year and doesn't leave. He also doesn't sail as much as those at
Pistol either. It would be a nice place to stay though because the town
is nicer than Gold Beach and any non windsurfers can take a lesson at
Brady's on Floras Lake.

Aaah!
Global warming?
Don't know but I've not been able to count on it as a bread and butter
spot  year after year. It gets a lot of days for sure.
July is a good bet as the Pacific high gets further north.
Everyone who ever gets it when it's working good is very impressed.
