Shred Dog and I will be back for more. All you mofos better start practicing your jibes - it looks like Scott heard about the Loretta's challenge and hasn't eaten in 6 weeks. He's HUNGRY. Lol

Fun even though I got there late this afternoon. Bunch of windsurfers, wingers, kiters. Good vibe. Nice to see everyone.

I’m definitely more sore than usual from wrestling with the gusty conditions earlier in the day. A couple of sailors said it was better on the upwind side of those three wind blocking islands, I think next time I’ll pack a lunch and beverage and head up wind. Water level was down a couple of feet from the last time I was there too.
Still a fun day and good to see my windsport brethren’s minus a few that couldn’t make it.

btw,semi-complete explanation of why NW winds suck so much - it has a lot to do with those pretty mountains 35-40 miles away you could see. Shok I haven't done the write up yet but you can see the images and maps and get an idea of how lee/mountain/gravity waves work.
