Conditions were a scaled down version of yesterday. Again, the huge wind shadow and stronger wind on the outside. I had fun surfing and playing way out by the oil rig for a while but played it safe when the wind started dropping, because I still haven't reattached the uphaul to my boom, and on my last fall I actually had trouble water starting. When it got light, it got light quickly. Low clouds precluded a brilliant red sunset like yesterday's, but instead I got a champagne-colored sky that slowly dulled to gray. Code orange for the second day in a row, but no problems.
