Wind sensors are great for preparing what to pack and plan. Local trees and flags are way more reliable for sizing upon arrival.

Directly onshore at my local beach tomorrow Sunday 9 Feb 2020.
American viewers, please add 14% :D

Unfortunately, I have a frayed back-line after removing a knot. So I'm out this time. :smug:
