Nice and sunny, maybe a little cold but a few kiters out. Too busy with work otherwise I'd be out there.

Nice, lots of different riders today! I think there are 3 wings out.

Pitched out 1.5 hrs just after the wind kicked in. Slightly overpowered on 12m+surfboard (9m would have worked) in steady NE 19-23. Nice waist high wave by 3rd Ave. Surprisingly warmer than yesterday - probably due to clear sunny sky.

Nice to pack up a dry kite for a change. Only 6 kiters and 1 windsurfer when I left.

Bitter. Boots, but no gloves (because I forgot mine at home - rookie move). Just enough wind to push around, most of the time. Crowd was a three-way split - wings, kites and windsurfers. Sun was the best part.

Nice pictures Dave:)

Sure was a chilly one. Wind was a little on and off and ended up switching to 5.7 which worked better.

Looks like we might get some warmer SE later this week :D
