The Port Aransas wind meter is officially unreliable. So last week it read 18 and I was planing. Today it read 24 when I was rigging, increased to 27 when I was ready to get on the water. Luckily I still rigged 5.2 because it just didn't FEEL windy, confirmed by Olivier launching and not planing. Gordon went out next. I needed every bit of the 5.2 because it was nonplaning on the inside and very challenging with chest high waves there. But on the outside it was planing. Still not strongly planing, maybe 20 mph. Riding in was fun!!!!! Bigger than we've had in a while, breaking over head out there. You just didn't want to ride them in too far.
