Looks like another day of kick ass waves at Tower Beach today. 1.0m HB and 16-20 knots.

Launch at Acadia until 4:30.

These are the kind of waves you can expect from now until 4:00 up at Tower Beach: http://youtu.be/xXECSDjvjTI?t=298

I'd estimate that it's about here:

Be careful if you go too far East as there starts to be a bunch of large rocks mixed in with the break. If you are kiting and go that far the hill effect from the UBC bluffs sucks the wind away so it isn't an issue for us.

Scored a sweet 2 hr session at Acadia on 12m+surfboard with James, Vicky and Fred. Steady WSW 18-22 at upper Acadia with waist to chest high waves and glassy smooth sections between.

More tomorrow?

Got just over an hour in the lighter wind at 4:00. The wind was picking up as I left but I ran out of time. 3/3 for NW.
