Looks like quite a few nice launches along the Abacos. I noticed trade-like winds cycling south of there off the Berrys this time last year. They kicked up as the afternoon wore on and faded around sunset. Wonder if they have this in the Abacos and points east as well?


Shredding inside White Cay in the Berrys. GREAT spot, butter on the inside, waves on the outside and reef in between!

Hey AJ what do you know about winds in the Central Bahamas and thereabouts? It seems like you folks may have more going on than systems sliding off the continent, tropical systems and may have some outer tradewind influence.

There is a tourist report about riding off of Treasure Cay in winter this year at:

Barometer Bob has quite a few private wind meter sites throughout the Abacos on his site at: http://barometerbob.com/
