I was loving my 14 out there this evening.
Andy was true to his word and ripping on his 10.
He was definitely shreding the 25 mph Alameda speed limit on his downwinders in the butter of the beach!

I know I broke the 30mph barrier on a few initial runs (GPS taped to my arm)... Had one that felt extra fast, but the GPS said it is 46.6 kts.... I don't think I went that fast though....

Andy, you're almost competing with Robby Naish's speed record.

Also...i looked on the cam to see if anyone was out and couldnt see anything but some plastic stuck to your window! Is there anyway to make it look up the beach more?

I just checked... world record is 41.57kts..... although, the world record speed is measured across 500 meters

My GPS must be getting weird signals or something....

I'll check the cam in the AM

So what about today (Tuesday)? Is it going to pick up in the pm, or keep puttering along like it is right now.

What's that OAK weather link, btw?
