Also new to the area

Postby pitts12driver » Fri Apr 28, 2017 4:24 pm

I'm trying to understand the combination of wind and tide that makes a "great" day at 3rd. I've kited both third and Coyote when I visited the area and the difference between high/low and ebb/flood was noticeable. Also curious about wind direction variation between West and WNW and conditions.

All comments appreciated.

high tide and ebbing is obviously better, but be mindful of the launch cove: lots of rocks underwater this season.
Don't go if it's west at the launch: makes the wind really gusty. WNW is your friend.
