Weird session

Such a weird day yesterday. Got to Doug's at about 10 and it was already honking. The wind had a lot of North in it so launching on 3.4/72 was tricky. Once you got to the mid section you could feel the power. When you got to the Oregon side you got blown off the water. By noon I retreated to the Hatch, where it was 3.7 but gusty as hell. Ended up at 4 or so on 4.7, but never I felt dialed in. 
On a sad note, a SUPer is missing, he was last seen at the Hatch, his board was recovered. Hope he's well.

Jones Beach

Nice sesh at Jones Beach/Nuke Alley today. The wind finally picked up in the afternoon, I had rigged to 6.5/105 combo and was too lazy to re rig, so I finished the session super powered up. Wind sensor was in the upper 30s when I left. The launch at Jones is weird: you launch from the Oregon side, and have to go through marginal wind til you get to Nuke Alley past the island (to the left in the picture). People launch on the WA side right on Nuke Alley, but the launch is just off the road, kinda shady...
