The breeze is fresh but not enough to ride at Montrose now. I'm in the Starbucks in Andersonville over drinking coffee.

What's the opposite of hitting the sweet spot? Hitting a bitter spot, I guess. I didn't see much wind around 11 am at Miller but still, there was some in MC, so I drove there. It turned out there wasn't enough for a 14 m... bummer. I mean, I had a few rides down the shore line but 5 ft break plus the anemic wind weren't the right combination to go further out. Now, checking the readings I see that my time on the beach fit the wind hole just perfectly... Later, it increased back to 20+ kts.
Oh, well, the season just started, right?
