Weather info for Kayaking across the bay...

After finally kayaking to work, a few weeks ago, I'd like to do it again soon.  But it's gonna be condition dependent for sure.  I made this page mainly for myself so I can figure out if I can make it across the bay in the upcoming days.
  • Check the weather
  • Check the wind (TI, iKitesurf page)
  • Check the tides.  Should be Ebbing when going to work (SF)... and flooding when coming home.  
    • So if it's Slack -> Ebb (i.e. high tide) between 5 am and 9 am
  • Make sure the America's cup isn't going on...

I just thought of this... but basically days that are Spare The Air... are good days to go.  It's gonna be hot with little wind.
