Short afternoon sunny sesh with Laura after hiking E Fork Trail #650 with the pups.

The inversion was in full effect. 46 degrees at the top of Cascade. 39 degrees in the parking lot. 22 degrees on the way down just before hitting the cloudline. 32 degrees at the river with the Nothing cloud.

Completely badass day at Port Aransas. It doesn't get much better. Big, well-defined sets. Sometimes I couldn't see my car until I got in closer! Long rides all the way across to the pier. Air was in the 40s but water still 70, so it felt warm to get splashed. I am so glad I got out. Only problem was that I rigged for low 20s, then it turned into sustained 30 mph during my session. I thought I was going crazy but the graph later confirmed what I felt. I just completely lost it a couple times trying to cut back and got blown off my board. But overall sooo much fun and I mostly handled the extra power without being too sloppy. No time to rerig so I enjoyed every moment as much as I could.

098 - Started with 4.7/JP93 for an hour but wind was dropping, limited everything so rigged again. It filled in, peaked and was good out to the bridge, between the spoil islands and IWC.

097 - Warm but almost too light, out toward the bridge to the spoil island.  Return runs were consistent until the inside but outbound only 50/50.

More light fluffy snow overnight made for a wonderful first day riding with Laura. She's the perfect ride buddy.

We did some more of the Ski Patrol to Mazot to Ridge Run to 2 Bowl then BLAST down the deep powder of 2 Bowl again, then tried a venture into 1 1/2 bowl. Scary stuff this stuff without a deeper base than the current 41" mid base with boulders still poking out from the fluffy.

Fantastic first day! But without Laura since it was her first day working on the volcano. Sad. But happy. But sad.

Run of the day was Ski Patrol to Mazot to Ridge Run to 2 Bowl then BLAST down the deep powder of 2 Bowl. Repeat.

Board: '14 JP 93 FWP         Sail: '16 EZZY 5.3 ELITE

096 - Midnight front on the way down by mid morning.  First time on cold front here in a long time. No major weeds, some whitecaps but fairly smooth, straight out to the IWC and back.  Expected it to be all day but as the sky cleared the wind kept dropping.

NNW@24mph

Board: Angulo Triumph 81         Sail: 4.2 Worldsail surge '08, 5.2 Worldsail Surge '12

I started on the 4.2, wind let way up, I rerigged to 5.2, then it came back up again. Odd NNW direction but really fun. Well defined sets. Several others on the water.

"Well it was great while it lasted..." from someone coming off the water is not what you want to hear while rigging up after driving for 3.5 hours straight from work. I sailed LWF until sunset in the nice warm weather, then drove to Houston to see my son play tennis. It was tough to miss the first strong cold front on Saturday/Sunday, but seeing O win some hardware this weekend was more than worth it.

Board: '14 JP 111 FSW FWS         Sail: '18 EZZY 5.8 ZETA

095 - Nice small wind range and consistent power out nearly to the IWC bridge.  Stayed upwind and outside BAF to midway at the marina channel.  Prefrontal wind ahead of quick cold front due about sunset tomorrow.
