Boundary Webcam has pre-selected viewing list North1, South1, etc.

How does the viewing list map to the launch locations ie Centennial, 1st, 2nd, boat ramp???

The wind looks promising, but the tide is really low for windsurfing.

Any suggestions for an alternative spot? Is it possible to drive all the way to the southern tip of Point Roberts?

Where are you seeing promising wind predictions? All I see it 10 knots, not usually enough to get any WS'ers out.

If you want to hit up PR there are 3 options that avoid a walk.
1) Lighthouse Marine Park at the SW tip, but watch for currents, very easy to get swept out to sea
2) Gabe's beach at the marina breakwater, only for E, SE, SW, W.
3) Gulf Rd, only for NW, W.

People have carried their gear down to Lilly Point in the past but it's a very big walk. I've kited down to Lilly Point from 3rd ave a few times and the wind is pretty fickle because of the hill.

The Home location is near the boat launch, the camera is about 10 houses north of 1a Ave, you can see the boarder marker on the right out in the ocean. Then North 1,2,3, and 4 pan up the beach with 4 being the closest to the Centennial Beach launch.
