It's always a bust up here in Berkeley unless you like riding a big floaty board for the lulls and a 5.0 sail for 30 mph gusts.

Very few places can make use of this strong wind because:

1. it is flowing over topography to get the water which means gusts and holes.

2. It is unstable air since it is warmer than the surrounding air so it lifts from the water surface readily.

The only reliable wind in this type of event is in The Gorge since the air is so chilly and of course Baja's East Cape since there is no topography to the North. But today the isobars do not make it to La Ventana.
