The tide changes first along the shore line about an hour earlier than published and then spreads all across the bay.
The seven plus kite boarders that were rescued this afternoon found out just how harsh a flood current and side offshore wind is.
Yup, the more time goes by, the farther it moves into the bay, also the intensity or speed is different and the wind angle direction effects your upwind ability too.
