Scored the early afternoon session. 1.5 hrs of steady SW 18-20 on 12m+surfboard ... until the rain arrived.

Great way to START the week! :D

Arrived just in time for 9m+surfboard conditions. Punchy SW 18-25 with plenty of chop. Called it quits after 2 hrs when chop got pretty bad.

Arrived at 11:30 and had to park half way down the Spit. Kinda gusty in SW 20-25 on 9m+surfboard. After 2 hrs the chop and gusts got worse then called it quits.

Where is that graph from Alton ? The SWS website looked very odd yesterday.

Screw EC forecast. Wind is good at the Spit. Surprisingly steady despite low clouds and some sunny spots. Relatively low turnout for Saturday.

Good father's day session. 2 hrs in SW 20-25 with occasional strong gusts on 9m+surfboard. Hot air felt thin even with no depower. Super busy at the Spit and on Sea-To-Sky highway. Great way to end the week.

Belated Father's Day session with my favorite daughter. Alton JR scores almost 4 hrs on 9m+TT (first session in 3 years). I joined her on 9m+surfboard for 1.5 hrs of cat-and-mouse chasing. Super steady SW 20-25.
