Are You Going to Ride Today? (4/2/13)

Postby nick_80044 » Tue Apr 02, 2013 1:38 pm

Weather.com is telling me there should be rideable wind today from about 3:30 to 5 pm at Berkeley.

Anybody in?

Any other spots looking promising?

5? You lucky dog. Berkeley is (as Androka puts it) on "union" time and packing it in by 5.

Berkeley turned on today--mild to moderate wind for at least a couple of hours. Then it shut off suddenly. At the end of the session there were a dozen kites on the beach, which is about the most I've ever seen there.

Has anyone been to Toll Plaza yet? I think we need a little more North West in the winds to ride there if I'm not mistaken.

Sat in my car at TP yesterday and got Hop Stoopid looking at the 5-7 kts of wind and rolling fog.

I was at TP yesterday and got an hour of ok wind. The beach is pretty gnarly right now (glass, needles, trash) I think there will be another beach cleanup day announced soon.
