Wind Today: Holy @#*#&#$& !!

Postby nick_80044 » Sun May 26, 2013 9:24 pm

I was lit on my 9m at the Toll Plaza. Rode until I was tired, and I wasn't the first one out. Surprisingly, there were only a handful of kites.

Where did everyone else ride? Always fascinated to hear where people like to go when they can go anywhere.

Got lazy and stayed home in Alameda. Nice but waveless.

Toll plaza was indeed awesome yesterday! Wind started to get real punchy after 430, which I think is thanks to the Westish direction. Wish I could have got out at a lower tide!
Rock and roll!!!

Did not get to Alameda until 4:30. Rode a 10m for an hour then had to switch to a 12m until 7. I guess I missed the big wind fun.
I gotta try the toll plaza. What is the best direction for there?

Crissy. Got there as the ebb started after 4pm, pretty powered on a 7m and a raceboard. The wind was filled inside really well which made up for the voodoo chop on the outside. Sailed for about an hour and felt pretty beat up! Definitely punchy.

Alameda (shellgate) from 3:30-5. Plenty of power on my 9m, especially outside a bit. Great little session!

I did see 3 or 4 fire trucks screaming towards the shack around 5ish. I hope everyone was alright. The FD didn't seem to stick around long tho, so perhaps it was another false alarm?

The firedepartment came because there was an overturned boat further up near Ballena Bay. There was already a boat towing the turned vessel in. No kiter involvement this time around. MJ0_
