After checking all the weather forcasts, current conditions and all other data, nothing leads me to believe there will be gale force winds at Crissy... this might just be a freek forcast by NOAA...

I guess I will just have to wait and see...

Please let us know how it was if it does happen.

Love seeing white caps across the bay to Angel Island. If I didn't have a meeting at 9am I would have been out @ Crissy. Anyway love seeing Gale when she stops in for a visit!

Gotta love it

you gotta love it when you see this in the weather discussion "ANTICIPATE GUSTY WINDS IN THE SFO BAY THIS AFTERNOON AS THE ONSHORE GRADIENT INCREASES TO 4 MB." That should put a :) on your sun tanned faces......

Crissy is jamming with wind right now. TI is going off. Looks like a good afternoon for bay area kiters....I bet larkspur will be good also.

Get some, Z.

hey flat-water:

Does anyone ever do dawn patrols at Crissy? I've been tempted, but think the buddy system is a must.

John..

Nope No dawn patrols yet but today would have been a good time to do it! Slack tide and plenty of wind hard to get both before noon. You should give me a ping if it looks doable.. I'm up for it!! - Just doesn't happen that often at Crissy.

Buddy system is good - I don't consider my cell phone a good alternative - Phone has a hard time launching a kite.

As Charlie noted - the Fog is going to mess up the normal launch time program. :evil:

Gale warnings on the bay are usually a total bust. But today they got it right! I rode an 8M in the east bay.
