The 6am sensors at Sand Heads and Tsawwassen are showing 23 to 28 knots SW and WSW. Either PR or WR for me this morning.

At LHP in PR now. 16 gusting to 20 SW. Better than earlier at WR but according to Alton it must have picked up there and is similar to PR.

Too marginal at 72nd. Feels like S 15

Crank and tank. It has backed off to below 20 knots now at PR but BB sensor is still reading 30.

Same thing happened at Iona, and thanks to your post Shonan I was suspicious of it and decided to wait it out and the tank happened. A morning chasing wind without success.

Me too. I wasted $10 in gas chasing wind from White Rock, Crescent Beach and 72nd Street.

Looks like the Spit has been rideable all morning.
