Thanks Le Noun for the onsite report!

Gave us the confidence to execute a downwinder today. The wind never let up it was cranking the whole time.

Cold? Yes. But awesome!

I don't know why we never thought of this before. It seems so obvious in retrospect. Meet at Sloat. Take one car to Kelly's Cove. Downwind back to Sloat.

I didn't see any kites but I could see whitecaps from Mt. Tam East Peak this afternoon after a 3,000 ft mtb climb...
