Darn near hurricane force winds kept the SUP’s dry…and, by afternoon everyone was blown off of the water…some gusts were higher than recorded…out on the water there were numerous “wind devils“…

Windsurfing has NOT been canceled!!!

Haven’t seen this many rigs on the grass since the old Jalama Beach Contest days…& most sailors didn’t have multiple boards and sails up…at one time I saw a 12/2 ratio of windsurfers to kiteboards…somebody actually asked me if there was a contest going on.

The early morning sesh on Saturday had the cleanest waves…a bit of Southerly ground swell mixing with a localized wind swell…by 3:00 everyone was blown off of the water…totally psycho and not surfable…

Had a lot of fun sailing with Brad, Rob, Tim, Ron, Clay…also, ex-windsurfer turned kiters Rob Rebstock and Alejandro…of course, it’s always a highlight of this windian pow wow to hang with the Ho ohana…Derrick, Julie, & Nathan…da kine kine and gracious folks…
