Wind Today (2/7/13)?

Postby nick_80044 » Thu Feb 07, 2013 1:50 pm

I'm hearing that it's getting windy on the beach at Alameda. The forecast doesn't really reflect that, though, and I'm not seeing anything significant on the web cam.

Your thoughts ... ?

Berkeley was sweet this afternoon. Nice to see some of the regular faces. Where were you Charlie?

Saw your yellow & black RRD out there this afternoon about 2:45pm Robert - I was coming back from checking Crissy/Fort Point. Sounds like you, TJ and James had a great session out there.

Sorry I missed riding with y'all,

Indeed. Good 12m session Wednesday and today at OB. So weird to get those in February.

I gambled on Alameda. It was rideable but just barely---overall, kind of a struggle, with up-and-down wind. Looks like I should've gone to Berkeley. :cry:

Without a solid lightwind riding rig Alameda is always a gamble if it's not the classic March / April NW blowout, but beautiful spot to ride XZSD
