South side Skyway looks good for sure (especially if NNE) due to a very low tide at about 8:40 am which should be greatly exaggerated and extended due to the North winds blowing the water out of the bay all night (if the forecast happens). Basically like Danny said!

It tends to be more windy and more stable winds on the south side on NNE as some know. It's easy to rig at low tide and definitely worth the 6 minutes added to the drive (actually taken away for some down south).

Thing is, unfortunately, there are lots of very sharp "objects" out there in the water, so if you ride there, I recommend not intentionally touching the bottom with your hands and avoiding contacting..... (well, just don't touch anything if possible!!) I have been cut only rarely anywhere even though I don't wear booties, but the SSSk has gotten me more than any spot and I have ridden there far less than any other spot. (Something gets shredded over there like one in three sessions, not a good ratio).

Hopefully it'll blow.

yeah, I'll be out @ SSKY early if we get wind so we will see. might not be wind later on so I'll go kiting at any sign of wind according to the forecast which has it dying later in the day

A NE dying throughout the day? I am planning on rigging big right off the bat, that's for sure.
