It's either double penetration, or dawn patrol (early morning session)

Dawn patrol did not bring any winds. As for the other meaning of the acronym, much would depend on the diet, I think.
Back to kiting: Zion in the early afternoon?

Hope it's not a dumb question- but do Montrose IKO3/PASA2 rules still apply after Labor Day?

It was windy at Zion but the range, within any given 3-minute period, was probably 8 to 28, or at least that's how it felt.
Maurice (sorry if I misspell it), it was difficult to find each other there because people spread over such a wide swath of the beach. Mario, I, and a few more guys launched at the Park Office a.k.a Ranger Station, and that's hand-down the most convenient spot, right at the beach.

Had two good days from the north up here. Thrusday evening the wind turned on big time and I was away over power on my 12 rally. Huge jumps off the smooth little kickers behind the pier. Yesterday guys killed it on SUP until the wind came in around 11-2 for outstanding waves I was told. I got b- conditions around 4ish after work, as the NE wind mushed out the waves and created chop.
I'd rather be Rollerblading
