Every spring when the high water flow is ~300K or more - the swell at Rufus can be crappy or epic depending on the wind conditions.
Was anyone out there yesterday (Friday) and can give a report?
Wind looking good for today.
Current flow is 302k.

It sucked. High current is often great for swell there IF the wind is honking, and the direction is helpful. It was way too north, so the swell was a lot of lumps with a pretty up and down wind situation. I heard stories of some lengthy swims at least at The Wall.

Sailed the Cove on Saturday. The wind was crap but there was some fun swell. Not classic Wall swell but I think it would have been had the wind been good. The current was pretty quick, you had to ride swell to stay in place. I saw some poor winger sitting on his board half way to Maryhill on my way home.
