Day 52 of the 2017 season: Metrobeach's Labor Day Holiday is near epic

A near Epic day at the local spot with 20-30 kiters and 6-8 windsurfers enjoying the pre-frontal steady winds and warm temperatures.
I got 3 sessions out of it, from  9:30 - 10:30, noon to 2:30 and 3:30 - 4:45, from no depower to full depower. Went out at 9:30 until the wind lulled at 10:30. Waited around until noon and then it came on nice and solid.  From that point on he wind just kept ramping up. Took a break at 2:30 and rigged my 9M, by then most were on there 9Ms. Back at it by 3:30 and finally finishing fully depowered with storm clouds heading toward the beach at 4:45.

TOB:  9:30-10:30, 12:00-2:30 and 3:30-4:45
Gear: 11M Z1 and 9M Z with TT
Water conditions: Not as wavy as expected with 20-30 SSW mph winds
Wind: 15-35 SSW generally
Weather:  mostly sunny and in the 70s
Highlights: lofty, chop hopping ollies, carving need I say more
