Friday Aug. 8, A great day of playing in the waves at KP!

Lets get out there!

Great day of sailing with about 30 kiters and boarders at Kettle Point this Friday. I made the 6AM drive commitment and had the waves and wind to myself for the first 40 minutes after hitting the water at 8:30AM sailing into the early afternoon. Solid 5M all day and sun with nice 3-8 ft. swell - even bigger way on the outside bowl. Couldn't have been better: about 70 degrees and NW 20k+ and enough sun to light up the aqua blue waves. Check out the video - this place usually only goes off in the spring and fall.

Gear: JP 85 FSW and 5M NP search.

Thanks: Millard (great call on the wind early on and HD video)
