Is there any kind of boat on Monday?? I got a board meeting at 5:30 at 2701 Hoyt Ave in Everett.

Been watching for Jetty or Hunter it all day. Not much wind and it's getting late. East Sound -> Arlington gradient is a big fat 0, but Skagit airport is reading 6. If we get any gradient in the next two hours, it could bump up enough to be rideable, but there's not much time left.

You have to bring your own "boat" to Jetty for the next couple months. The ferry doesn't start until July.

Jetty looks like a bit of a downgrade from yesterday, but it's supposed to be 75deg and clear today, which will help. Tough call. Tomorrow looks like a bigger push for Jetty. Golden gardens today about 5pm looks better than Jetty, IMO. Get there any earlier and the tides and light wind will probably keep you frustrated.

Not much to get excited about at Jetty yesterday. Was able to just hold my ground on my 15 m in the late afternoon for maybe 15 minutes; people on the flysurfers were doing fine though. However, once the flysurfers have to come in, then you know you don't have a chance.

I paddled over too, for a measly 20 mins or so on a lightwind twintip and a 15M. Still sun was shining, peeps were out, Jetty season is here! Looking forward to moving my kayak into it's summer home :)

Looks like it picked up around 7PM to maybe 14M and big board. I was paddling back by then. Someone was on a 13M and as I was driving away saw a couple in the air.

Perfect Jetty setup today. It will most likely be going by 1pm!
