I have been using a weed fin there for the last month .
The last time I was there was the Sunday before last.
Not so much that there is big patches yet but the occasional
encounter is enough for a spin out. You can see the weed shoots
reaching out from the bottom . And its along the shoreline in some
spots. The direction sensor from iwindsurf is totaly bonkers on direction
but intermittently . If you look at the new iwindsurf map the 152 sensor
is more accurate for direction. Last night it was indicating totaly oposite
the direction of three surrounding sensors.
For instance right now at 9 pm 6/19/2017 the iw sensor says ene three
surrounding sensors say pretty much west.

Water level was high yesterday no patches on the surface but weeds
just below the surface and they get on you if you fall in certain places.
ABK crew using weed fins for the most part.
Wind not to good and didn't come up till 4 pm for about 1.5 hours.
High overhead clouds ? I don't get how San Luis can not go with
Delta like indicators in the weather pattern.

They had the water level high today but the weeds seem to be
totaly gone. Someone said that had sprayed early .
I went out with my 29cm fin it has a little sweep in the tip
but is essentially vertical. No spin outs.
