Saturday is looking promising. I've had some lovely SUP sessions this year but I'm looking forward to dusting off the kites!

There is a breeze here at the mo. I think we all gonna need foilboards at this rate.
Looking further ahead, Thursday AM looks OK NW 20 kts
Beyond that its all down to timing , The sites I use show stong W overnight then going NW around midday . And the tide wont let us play on Sat at rest . This is the model run from this morning (GFS the model XC and Windalert uses)
This site has a lovely animation of the theyr model which is pretty reliable too http://www.theyr.com/

i would say looks possible at rest bay . NW is always more there 16 kts forecast could easily be 20 and the tide is good for rest i think low tide about 3 ?. Check the meter on the website.

I'm good to go Tony

Let's see what the morning brings weather wise - I'm guessing if it's on it will be rest bay from about 11 am to allow tide to go out a bit?

My plan for today is to head to rest bay for about midday [or just before] and wait it out and see what occurs.

Worst case is i get to spend a couple of hours in the fresh air and may even go for a jog - nice.

If i'm lucky I get an opportunity to pump up and get wet.

Whatever results i'm going to have a nice day
