Good 9m wind. Mushy surf.

Damn bro you shoulda texted me. We got there and the flag at Taco Bell was alternating blowing on-shore and off-shore so it seemed like it was blowing 5 knots off-shore gusting to 20 knots on. Way shifty

We ended up heading to HMB for a pretty cool sunset session. Kind of sketchy and closeout, gusty, but couldn't really beat the scenery there today.. was awesome

Where are you riding tomorrow bucko? Nouner and I are hitting Bro-B a.m. session if you want to join us...

Ya. Shoulda texted ya. TB Flag was up and down, but at the water I was feeling upper teens on-shore so gave it a shot with the 9m. Then it went down, pumped up the 11.5m; then the wind died. Really nice packing up the kites in calm winds though!

I'm hoping for Crissy tomorrow afternoon... heading to the Faralons to whale watch in the morning. I'll be sure to push the wind your way! Or come jump over our boat. I'll hand you a beer!

For those that were out at Brocean Beach this afternoon - thanks for contributing to an amazing day.

Warmth, sun, wind, waves, kites dotting the sky, beach goers hooting us on, what looked like no serious wipeouts or safety issues despite the crowd on the beach and the water, nobody was landing kites in the parking lot and MOST people were mindfully launching more towards the water...

Also big ups to the pro strapless guy on the big Rally who helped out the one guy I saw that had his kite swallowed and had to swim in

I really forgot I was in the cool city of fog for a few hours there and grateful to share the water with you all... Mahalo
