Planning a nearshore trip on Sunday over some of the ARs. As of right now it's forecasting winds as being 12 SSW. I'm still pretty new to venturing outside of the inlets and was wondering if anyone has any insight on how those winds will affect getting out of the inlet. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

Outflowing water will collide with a SW wind and stack up the water, sometimes causing a nasty chop. If you can, try inlet passages that avoid the middle hours of an outgoing tide when the flows are the strongest.
Spot on advice!

I appreciate the advice gents. I'm planning on being out of the inlet by 0630. Our first adventure leaving the inlet was in the middle of falling tide with a nasty SE wind. We ended up making it out but not before getting battered and tossed around.Won't be making that mistake again.
