I MIGHT try to catch an early morning windsurf session before the tide goes out. No windsurfers out early last Wednesday and couldn't read the wind for sure so took the safe kite bet - which at that time conditions did better suit kiting over windsurf.

Kite could be good later Friday am on the lower tide if some waves show - maybe "act 2"?

How fast is the tide forecast to drop? Would love a good day on the Pole Board. Mebbe AG can show me a thing or two ;)

Wind looks like it might be stronger around 2 though, not ideal, hopefully it comes in a little earlier in the morning.

3m is getting into "losing your fin" territory.

3M tide is mint! Nice waves for jumping at that tide. Enjoy! Glad to hear you haven't sold all your gear btw and getting out there. Good stuff!
Awesome reading reports of a few good days and more tomorrow. Right on!
Have fun.
