Re: Feeling optimistic

I'm more inclined to bet on the morning, though the last easterly (Friday) did last into the early afternoon (after fooling me into quitting and hour earlier). T-storm and rain chances pick up after 10am, according to Noah. (And he knows something about rain.)

There was actually a bit of wind today probably 5-15 (or maybe a bit less), over at Little Ridge. I kept hearing sounds that seemed like thunder or maybe a jet plane, but couldn't tell for sure. Finally it seemed to be thunder and the wind slacked off so I drifted back. Turns out G-ville had a pretty big t-storm at the time.

Probably afternoon / evening (just because of work). But if there is some wind I might go at Lunchtime

Going to see if my boat is still floating after these storms... taking the board, just in case.
Where to go? VP? Vanns?

Or better yet an 8.5 NP V8 for a really nice price.

Re: Feeling optimistic

Nice evening on the water. Just a light breeze and hardly any boat traffic.
This evening would have been a good day for someone just starting this sport.
Just enough wind to keep you moving around and flat water.
Met Foildude coming in as I went out
