La Ventana - Waves & Wind today?

Postby W84Wind » Tue Jan 15, 2013 11:42 am

The forecast is for big waves and big wind. The waves are rolling in, but the wind? It just seems to come and go. Anyway, you can get the current winds and a shot of the action on our webcam:

Super gusty and strong yesterday in LV.

Better today but still a bit gusty.

Today was fun on a 9M then 7M over at Captain Kirk's on the North end of the bay. Folsom Lake storm kiting was good prep for handling the gusts with ease.

You can always go catch a turtle if the wind is down....

Swam above it for a bit at the surface then dove down and got it. removed some rope wrapped around one of its flippers and then it was tagged and released.
