Wolf is coming up nicely.. just out there on lunch and pretty steady 17-21.. more up and down action than gusty around noon. Wind is directly on-shore to the launch and small white caps are abundant.

Classic Summer West winds. They are punchy, but they are there. Smoother in morning and afternoon if that's what you are looking for. I'm off my booties for good now thank god!

I went out the wind died.
I came in the wind blew 15-20.

sorry if i misled, but at noon it was perfect...by two it started to get funky and i had to bail and go back to work... guess thats part of the challenge in predicting the wind.

No worries. That was typical summer West/SW winds there. They come smooth in the morning...blow strange and gusty gusty all day (like I called it) and then get smooth again towards the evening before they give out.
