No wind anywhere? How might we explain the wave riding at Waddell today? (Z? GB?) Seemed windy enough to ride some big honkin' waves to me! (But, I acknowledge Paul, that it didn't seem very good on the pager and it was pretty light overall.) Still got some salt in the eyebrows though! No BIG jumps to be had, but definitely some 3D water. All-in-all worth the drive.
Folsom on Wednesday then?
Well It does look like a good forcast,
We will just have to see how it plays out...
Good luck to you all, I won't be able to make it...

Waddell is just a bit too far for me to drive on a weekday. I was waiting for the wind at the north-of-the-gate 3-D water spots, but it didn't even hit double digits.
Glad to hear you guys got some, though.(grumblegrumble)
It says 10M, but it's really a 9.
5:50 am Sherman Windtalker is already 14 to 29 with an ave. of NW 21
Nothing yet at Folsom...
Looking at the below forcast it looks like they have downgraded it
AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
FXUS66 KSTO 251134 AFDSTO AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SACRAMENTO CA 430 AM PDT WED OCT 25 2006 .DISCUSSION... SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWS SHARP TROF MOVING QUICKLY INTO NEVADA EARLY THIS MORNING. WINDS PEAKED DURING THE NIGHT AS DRY SURFACE COLD FRONT MOVED ACROSS THE REGION SUPPORTED BY SOME DOWNWARD MOMENTUM FROM ALOFT.
EXPECT THAT WINDS WILL PICK UP AGAIN IN THE SACRAMENTO VALLEY AFTER SUNRISE AS MIXING OF THE BOUNDARY LAYER DEVELOPS... HOWEVER WHILE BREEZY CONDITIONS WILL DEVELOP...IT LOOKS LIKE SPEEDS FOR THE MOST PART WILL REMAIN BELOW ADVISORY CRITERIA AS LARGE-SCALE SUPPORT FOR STRONG WINDS ACTUALLY WEAKENS WITH TIME AS THE TROF MOVES FURTHER TO THE EAST. THE TIGHT SURFACE GRADIENT IS EXPECTED TO TRANSITION TO AN EASTERLY DIRECTION TONIGHT AS SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE GREAT BASIN IN THE WAKE OF THE TROF. THIS WILL SHIFT THE FOCUS OF GUSTY WINDS TO THE NORTHERN SIERRA AND FOOTHILLS WHERE LOCALLY GUSTY EAST WINDS WILL OCCUR ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN AND DOWN THE CANYONS ON THE WEST SLOPES. PORTIONS OF THE COAST RANGE AND THE WEST SIDE OF THE SACRAMENTO VALLEY WILL ALSO LIKELY SEE BREEZY CONDITIONS CONTINUE TONIGHT.
