Back to Stick hoping for a repeat of yesterday but conditions are much less appealing. I almost go back home but than Vasco and Nino show up and we decide to go for it. Again 5.4 + RRD 90. It works somewhat but it is one of those Stick day with three directions.

Close to shore 15-20, call it West
Wind Hole (5-15)
North puff 15-20 NNW
Wind Hole (multiple, 0-10)
Mountain puffs almost all the way to Sierra Point 15-20 SSW

Lovely! Shocked

We soldier, and my set up goes well although I miss a slalom board with 6.5

Season dwindling? Might be time to pick up mountain biking.

Could have instead foiled with 4.2...choices.

There was enough wind to sail this morning as the tide turned to flood. The big wind went to Fairfield. Maybe we should build a lake there.

Sat pretty good moderately windy Berkeley, maybe 10 sailor out at a given time.
Choose 5.0 and 85, ok powered little hops, a bit choppy but ramps just not setting up.
Lasted from 3-6, with some lulls.
Hope you got some wind.
Sunday setting up new on the coast, for S Bay and not for E Bay.

Real early session this Sunday at 3rd at the old launch. Hit the water after 11:30 am on a 5.0/100L RRD. Light wind on the inside and I had to slog beyond the marker to get to plane mode. Sailed mostly on the outside a mile or so beyond the marker for good sailing..wind was about 18. Coming in at 12:30 I saw Dimitry upwind foiling on a wing (4.0 Duotone)..came in, packed up my gear and drove up to upper Third to watch him. Spoke with his missus and she told me he's been at it for just 2 weeks. He sure looks good on it already and looks to having fun..I'm jealous Crying or Very sad
I do plan on giving it a go with lessons (hopefully with Alan Cadiz) when I'm in Maui next month Smile

Did Coyote on Monday just past 1 pm on my 4.2 Hucker. A half hour later the choppy,westerly 30 mph winds at SFO was putting a real strain on my knees..had to call it quits at 2.

Hope you are still sailin.....
Berkeley Monday, after a wisp of breeze Sunday, decided to run 16-25 most of the pm.
I show early, around 2, rig 4.8 for foiling in 16 gusts.
1st run, perfect 12-18, second run, gusts of 24 show and the whole basin fills in.
Back to windsurf till 4.

Did you ever sail Argyll Park? I'd never heard of it, but now I'm curious because it is very windy in that area.

I was going there in the mid 70's, before I started ws in '83 for motocross races and plenty of days was too windy ro double the jumps or even to go for itn
Clearly remember ond hot day where I rode the bike into the lake after a moto, solid whitecaps with low white froth.
