I'm actually thinking of driving EAST to Alameda... Looks like the most perfect wind around at the moment.

What a crazy day yesterday! At Sherman the wind was really strong-- averaging 32 when I went out at 5 and I was on my 7m totally lit. But it was also the trashiest wind I can remember -- totally up and down and gusty/punchy as hell. But still lots of fun! Not a day for unhooked riding but that didn't stop Donny from throwing handle passes.

It's been a windy spRING

Post by zgur » Sun Apr 20, 2008 7:57 am

What an awesome spRING we have had this season, agreed? wind basically EVERY day, if you are willing to do a little driving. The waves have been sweet as well.

I Spent some family time yesterday, and actually took the day off by choice: body needed a break from all those wave faces ;-)

See you in the water soon.

Get sum, Z.

Dude, alameda was perfect today. yeah some hot air would be nice but like charlie sais, this is a good compromise. Lots of big jumps and of course many kiteloops courtesy of ollie. But i take credit for mowing the lawn today.
