I gave up on Tahoe today 'cuz it was raining at 8000 ft. Anyone up for kiting the coast tomorrow?
NWS Forecast for the coast:
S winds 20 to 30 kt. Wind waves 2 to 7 ft. W swell 12 to 16 ft at 13 seconds. Showers likely.
S winds 5 to 15 kt. Wind waves 2 to 3 ft. SW swell building 17 to 22 ft at 15 seconds. Showers likely.
S winds 10 to 20 kt...becoming se in the afternoon. Wind waves 2 to 4 ft. W swell 16 to 21 ft. Chance of showers.
S winds 15 to 25 kt. Wind waves 2 to 6 ft. W swell 14 to 17 ft. Chance of showers.
S winds 15 to 25 kt. Wind waves 2 to 6 ft...decreasing to 2 to 4 ft in the afternoon and evening. W swell 12 to 14 ft. Chance of showers through the day.
30 kt winds and 30 ft faces every 13 seconds?
Umm, no thanks, I'll sit this one out.
Let me know how it goes.
Come on guys, where's your sense of adventure! I was thinking OB, not HMB. It should be kiteable if the wind is straight out of the south, right.
I do the math to 23 ft., not 30. And as Ollie says, at OB, you don't have to kite all the way out to the big breakers -- you can hang out in the white water.
Dewey, you could be the first guy ever to kite Mavericks...
One thing I know -- I'm not going out without company.
