Maybe some wind tomorrow? I see a possible mid morning window for Centennial/3rd Ave BUT it looks like a turn with some SSW? Maybe White Rock... Then a night wind westerly! :evil:

Looks like a sensible choice. I'm not a fan of the wondering if it will actually happen but the long daylight hours help.

I've still got my eye on white rock for a possible earlier session if there's at least 11M wind.

Scored a session at White Rock on 8m+surfboard. Up and down with some messy waves mostly due to SSE direction. Good to ride Mike, Chris, Cash, Chalmers, Chuck and all the WR regulars.

Double session - scored the evening session at Ambleside on 12m+surfboard in SW 16-20. Nice rollers but strangely lots of debris floating about.

Went out at Locarno at 7:00 pm. 20 to 25 knots. 105 board, 5.5 polesmurfing sail, and 24 cm fin. The biggest gear I own. Was a lot (too much) of power. Less chop than usual. Nicer swell than usual. Plenty of happy faces.
