Washoe Lake, NV, US

Short light wind session, getting used to my new harness with a sliding hook, works great for upwind and cruising around but I think fixed hook is better for downwind slingshots.

Looks like Monday is going to be good day at Washoe for some high speed cruising.

I'm going to be there tomorrow but the forecast was slightly lowered. Roo, sorry I missed your question in my previous session, I have only seen light wind and it's quite flat especially when you get further upwind closer to west side. The wind was super light 12-15kts with short 20kts gust that helped to get over 30 knot speed. Definitely not enough wind to push the limits, but enough to enjoy summer, with extra 5 kits of wind water won't be as flat.

Alaways good to get the details of fast locations from the locals. I remember you got your best nm there at Washoe, how big is the lake? Will have to keep an eye on you and Boris, looks like you have the locations for great nm and high hour averages. Do you have problems with weed in the summer or does it just get nice and flat as they grow in?

Hi Roo,

You can get 3 miles run at Washoe this year, and it would be the perfect spot for NM and one hour if the wind was better. This year the wind was really bad probably because of all that snow pack in the mountains, it must be affecting thermal wind pattern or maybe it's too humid up there, definitely, something wrong compare to previous years. I've made NM over 30 today and it only because of the smaller board, there was some wind at the beginning of the run, then was a big hole in the middle and some more wind at the end. Weeds are okay for now, only that tube grass drifting on the surface, but it was very organized lately and staying at one spot. There are some bushes growing above the water that you can see and go around them, don't remember weeds growing all the way to the surface even when it was waist deep.
