I'm a bit sore this morning as I took some hard crashes yesterday. The weed fin that came loose again was catching weeds. Combine that with a bit over power kite and the board couldn't keep up with some of the faster turns.

Well (according to GFS), the next chance might still be Saturday morning. As odd as it seems, I use weather network to confirm. Hourly Tsawwassen at around 20g30 km/hr seems promising (except yesterday afternoon :roll: ). The other forecasts I rely on in the winter don't seem to matter as much?? I also like to be ready to go then go when I see some sign of wind. Been lucky so far this summer as it seems a bit sketchy.

Looks "doubtful" this morning unless anyone caught the night patrol at 2am to 4am.
