Where in the hell is Blunt Point?

Postby Tunces » Sun Jun 17, 2012 12:10 am

The forecast on ikitesurf refers to "the new Blunt Point and Sherman Island sensors"......where the hell are they? I don't find either on their service.

It's called Point Blunt. And as Rick says its the southeast corner of angel island that's closest to treasure island. It's a very windy and exposed area in the middle of the bay.

Thanks! Sherman M10 appears to be reading more accurately. Anyone know if it's been repaired?
