I can now express a definate opinion that Bird Island is the place to be over the South Padre Laguna. It is extremely shallow here and the weeds were a bear. When you drop into the water you go about 3 feet more in muck/ weeds. Unfortunately, we didn't get to experience the much anticipated wave sailing here. The wind was just at the speed that tempts you to rig big and go with a smaller board, but couldn't quite get planing. Then I am limited in my freestyle moves, although I tried them. Tried a push tack and got clobbered by the sail. Plenty warm for just a bikini.
