Finally a solid, seasonal southwesterly

If you ask a windsurfer what summer should look like, he'd tell you sunny weather, warm water and a nice beach sandblasted by 25+ mph winds. Although rare this year, (I was away the past two weeks so I perhaps missed something?) these conditions materialized yesterday concomitant with the passage of a frontal system. Even in the usually gusty and holey conditions of West Meadow beach I had a solid blast from 1 pm to 4pm on a 5.8. I had another session at WM last Thursday on a 6.3 so today I'm bit stiff. What a great day! But Nostalgia is kicking in because the summer is about to end and I hate rubber...
