Early AM the wind was tolerable. By 9am it was howling 20mph. By noon ripping at 30+mph gusts. Spent a lot of time getting held up the face by the wind... didn't see a whole lot of people catching much of anything today, but when you were lucky enough to get into one you got shacked. There were some periods where it backed off and let a few waves through, but was mostly annoying. Would have been insane without the howling offshores.
