hmmm... I understand your point, but at the same time - what if those wind reports were accurate? What if some people can and do paddle in 35 knot winds? Does that mean they should not tell other people about the conditions they paddle in? Does that mean that everyone should assume they can paddle in the same conditions of everyone else?
Should the same go for wave height, surf period, frequency, tidal current, uv index, or any other factor in paddling? If I miss judge wave height and someone tries to paddle in those conditions is it my fault? Or rather, if I can paddle in 30 knot winds and report that I can and did paddle in 30 knot winds, does that mean everyone just assumes they can paddle in 30 knot winds as well? Am I some how responsible if people misjudge their ability, or over estimate their ability based on what I am able to paddle?
