Default 12 windy weekends in a row

This will make 12 weekends in a row with good wind .

Most of you know this already, (but some don't). It commonly jumps from 12 knots to 20 plus knots in less than ten minutes on days like today (southerly winds) right around 1:30 pm.
Don't know if it will today, but be ready to hop off the 32m if it does.

It also is windier up top and out 50 yards than it seems on shore with a wind meter.
So if Billy is jumping 30 feet and your meter says 14, you might want to reconsider that 17m Contra. Sorry for the nanny-talk, just want it safe out there today. It's going to be crowded with riders and spectators is my guess.

It's should be epic winds and weather!

Yep. Several of us are planning a little down wind ride from EB to Tierra Verde, mainly to get "out in the open". This is assuming it doesn't switch too much away from S to SW.
It's going to be crowded at TV "beach" with windsurfers and maybe jetskis, so landing kites there won't be the easiest, but still do-able if we get a guy on shore to grab them.

I would like to leave a vehicle or two at TV for the ride back.
You interested in doing this around 1 or 2? (Ride at EB for awhile, then take a break dropping off a truck)

I have little to no desire to go to TV land

prefer to stay somewhere where its not as gusty, The place to go is WAY upwind to the real EB than downwind. nice little rollers form up there
