OB is firing right now. Probably 25 MPH with moderate South Swell. Get on it!

There was a sand castle contest.
Good luck parking.
They were stopping it when I left 40 min ago. So parking situation might get better.

Is the wind "cleaner" at the Upper beach? We rode at riviera yesterday cuz of the sandcastle event, the wind was all over the map, super lit 8m to underpowered. Felt like the way outside was more steady. Its great on southerlies but it felt like the wind just tumbled down the beach yesterday... hard to tell if it was just the gustober north westerlies.

We were at the gate 20 and it was pretty gusty as well. Phil was riding all the way up to Kelly's cove so he might be able to answer that. But yes, in general I think Kelly's fills up better than the rest on wnw and sloat on sw.
