Sw at jericho. Slowly ramping up, the odd 10 knot gust but not much

Screw this wind. I’m going back home Squamish where hopefully it’ll be civilized by the time I get there

Starting to clock more to the west. Going to gamble it will continue and try Locarno.

Forecasts and models have been all over the map all season long. Hopefully next year the meteorologists that were laid off due to Covid will return and we'll have more reliable forecasts.

If someone sees a pair of gloves sitting on a log @ tswassen, I left them there.

Great way to start the long weekend with a dawn patrol session at the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal. Over 2 hrs on 12m+surfboard in SW 16-22. At first overpowered but 12m was the right choice as it eased off after 8am. Massive weed patches threw me off my surfboard 10 times ... at least they make good jybe markers.

Over a dozen kiters, 1 wing foiler and 2 windsurfers.
