We've had a month of NO wind. The last few years I seldom try to kiteboard during the summer. Even when it does blow there are often too many lulls to make it fun unless you have a large kite and all I use is a 10M kite. During the summer the wind blows out of the south and gives us choppy sea conditions. Because of this, plus the fact that warm and humid air is less dense and gives less push on the kite, we need a lot more knots to get out there. If it isn't blowing 20, you're going to have problems.

Wow, it's been a long time since I posted anything but the wind has been abysmal. I went the the beach by the Estuary Soldado with Daren last week and watched while he gave it a try. The lulls were too much and the kite just wouldn't stay in the sky. That's what the summers are like here. Hopefully we'll get some winds when the tropical storms pick up down south. The storms also send us some waves to play on.
