The wind got lighter for about 40 minutes around 2pm and Middles looked pretty good. Of course, by the time I paddled out, it started blowing 25 again, but I still enjoyed the challenge (and the view).
Leaving Hookipa, I quickly took a photo of the windsurfing action mostly to show the size of the waves. Vicky.
The sky was still completely clear of clouds all the way to sunset.

Wind map at noon.
North Pacific has a new born low that has a WNW fetch. The older, much stronger one north of us is now almost entirely aiming at the Mainland west coast. They're having a pretty good winter over there too.
Nothing from the south.
