Any local knowledge on if it will blow tomorrow at Squamish? I'm debating driving 2.5 hours. Temp gradient looks good between Vancouver and Liliooet but the pressure gradient does not look good. iKitesurf pro-forecaster is torn. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

Where are you seeing pressure gradients for Monday?

this is from the iKitesurf pro-forecaster: "pressure gradients are forecasted to be near zero (could even be slightly negative)."

WindGuru is suggesting sailable inflows but possibly weak and or a late start ... so I'll bring my 12m and some patience

Day 35 - Epic day better than expected. Pumped 12m then quickly pumped my 9m for 0.5 hrs overpowered then finally 7m + surfboard in SW 24 g 28 for 2.5 hrs. Gusty near the Spit but way steadier (than the graph suggests) outside near Nexen. Fun cranking gybes and hitting wavelets toe side.

Day 36 - Yet another epic day. Overpowered on 9m + surfboard in SW 23 g 27 so spend 2.5 hours down at Nexen to shave off some wind. Tons of fun hitting wavelets toe side.

Today (Thu) should be good. Tomorrow (Fri) should be epic. Could be the last 2 good days before the Squamish wind machine turns off.

Hey Saturday is forecasted to be cloudy anyhow. Plus every North Shore MAMIL will be cycling the Gran Fondo on the 99.

Think I'll head up to Nexen tomorrow, Tony you going?
