Fri Sand key

Sat Skyway

don't trust those sensors, they are becoming more crap everyday

I'm pretty much only going by the marine forecasts and pressure gradients now since all the other forecasts are also getting crappier

http://ruc.noaa.gov/disp2.cgi?/w3/ra...2_surf_wind+se

http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/data/Foreca...US52.KTBW.html


quasi-pressure and marine forecasts respectively ( 12:00Z time is 7:00am I believe )


iKantsurf and windguru forecasts seem to have become worthless

The sensors around here suck, the forecasts aren't much better.
IMO, a lot of getting to ride around here depends on nailing your own micro forecast and knowing which areas are most likely to produce wind.

My guess is that today it's gonna blow 20 in some areas for several hours from the North.
It's already starting up North around Fred Howard as Doppler just showed the wimpy front move through. It might make it to North Beach DeSoto by noon, but I always drive north on these wimpy Norths (like Raul, Lori, Donna, Paul, Alex, Cornel, Colin, and myself did on Friday). It's usually much better up there.
I have seen literally dozens of days where it blows 20 N at iRB or CLW and blows less than 10 more south on days like today.
The opposite, where it blows in SP and not up north is rare on a cold front.

Everyone knows that, Tom.

Geez.... what is this? 2002?
That was the wimpiest friggin' cold front of all time
I don't remember ever seeing that happen. Unreal.
I guess when it drops all the way down to 75 from 77 degrees, that's what happens. LOL.

You wouldn't think so... since they all show up at 10:30 and start pumping up as we are coming in to pack up!

Al-kite-ah must be pissed. The wind died just long enough up at Sand Key to convince him to leave, then it filled in again.
