Wind from the South. I am heading to 3rd Ave at noon. Or perhaps Alameda a better idea?

im a north bay guy but pretty sure 3rd is a bust on a southerly. alameda can be good though. if you got the skillz I would say southerly downwinders at OB is the ticket. my .02 anyways

So in my experience the Fort Funston sensor is pretty accurate on southerly winds and the KC meter is in a shadow, basically oppisite of what happens on a NW wind (shadowing the Funston sensor).

I've only done two southerly sessions at OB but they were both epic. I'd take work off if I wasn't still beating an infection (at least id like to say I would). If you do it let us know how it was... take that go pro out.

OB was certainly fun. Got a couple hours in. Impossible to stay up wind so did a bunch of walkin but I am definitely down for OB sessions now that I have broken my virginity there.
