DIDN'T EXPECT MUCH TO LAST WITH AN INSIGNIFICENT TROPICAL WAVE IN THE AREA.  STARTED LIGHT AND BUILT ENOUGH TO HAVE SOME LONG RUNS SOUTH IN FLAT WATER ALONG THE DROP-OFF.  FIRST OUT WAS BAF IN IWC BETWEEN SI#1 & #2 IN VERY FLUKY WIND FOR A SHORT ONE .  OCCASIONAL GUSTS AND MOSTLY INCONSISTENT EVERYTHING.  LATER SESSION WAS LONG TIME AND DISTANCE WISE, FIRST TACK TO BOOM POINT THEN BAF BETWEEN IT AND LOOKOUT POINT ALONG THE DROP-OFF BOTH WAYS.  OCCASIONAL HOLES BUT ALWAYS PLANING.  ALSO WENT OUT TO THE IWC ABOVE THE SOUTH CABINS BUT KEPT LOADING UP WITH WEEDS AND WENT BACK TO BOOM POINT AND THE FLATS AGAIN STILL SOLO.  ALSO RAN BAF BETWEEN SI#1 & #2 AND THE NORTH END STEADY PLANING AS THE WIND FINALLY HAD PICKED-UP.  LUCKY DAY ON THIS FRIDAY 13TH.
