warm beach in Washington?« on: November 24 2004 17:11:00 »
A friend told me the Japanese current made waters somewhere on the coast of Washington warm in December. Now I can't find anythin about it. Anyone else heard of this?

No, he said out on the COAST- like ocean shores, canon beach etc.
Seattle would be silly

Well if ur so smart then answer his question. I have never been there and for the record Seattle is considered on the coast

Okay, JUST for the record, since no one here is smart enough to answer the original question (or to spell things right), Seattle is considered to be on the SOUND, not on the coast at all. If you're a surfer, you'd know the freakin difference between open ocean waves and polluted Puget water.

The water is cold all over Washington all year long... occasionally, a warm current will pass through (kushiro or something?), but for the most part it is cold. I wear a 3mil wetsuit year-round when windsurfing, but I wear a 6mil when surfing. You can get away with a 4mil in the summertime when the waves are small, the wind is light and the sun is out, but you usually get cold after a while if you are shortboarding (submerged more of the time).
And to clarify about 'the coast' - its a loose term used to describe all of the land west of the cascade mountains. While Seattle is considered part of 'the coast' and has a shorline, it's waters are not considered 'coastal'.
