Scored a sweet 2 hrs session. SW 16-20 on 12m + surfboard. Good turn out (over a dozen kiters) at the Spit. Even saw Brian C windsurfing out of Nexen.

More tomorrow?

A wise poet wrote this very apropos haiku during the 9th century feudal Japan.

I think your translation of 9th century feudal Japanese is a little rusty.
Mind you it could be open to interpretation?

I believe it says....

Squamish should be giving up 15 knots all this week for a few hours a day. Currently 17 knots.
