It blew really good this morning.
I rode the SW from about 9 to 11. It was 16 to 20 or so, with gusts.

The more I ride the SW on NNE and NE, the more I realize how gusty it is there. It wasn't so obvious until I started unhooking.
Few things suck worse than unhooking in 17 or so and getting jacked in 25 plus at take off.
I gotta find a better spot!

It might blow tonight and tomorrow night and then Sunday.
It won't even surprise me if it seabreezes tomorrow afternoon.
Anything is possible.

Accuweather forecasted it to blow today, until about 2pm, btw.

Hows does a clock work? ive always owned didgital watches. Front winds start S, SE, W/NW, N, NE, E
the more i think i know something about the gulf the more i find out how unpredictable it is. compared to Hawaii Cali, etc....
