Now it looks like it is shifting over to Alameda. We have our Alameda Reporter Charlie standing by for a full report. Charlie.....

Was fair, kind of light on the inside. A bit gusty toward the end. Had fun though. Sometimes it's tricky getting up and outside.

It was typical berk wind: light and puffy. If you are a light guy, under 185, you can play. If you are holding, over 200#, you are sloging. I did not have as much fun as the Ollie/Charlie.

Got wet. Can't complain.

Typical for Punta Emerito-- fat guys can't get to the solid wind. Perfect for the sparrows, as noted.
