Once in a while we get a few days of wind but they are separated by too many days of relative calm. The forecast is calling for light northwest wind all next week, and there is a good chance that it will blow good enough every day. Last year the last part of our season was very good and I'm hoping that this will be the case again this year.

I was in Tucson most of last week but I don't think I missed much wind. We were expecting nice wind yesterday but it was almost dead calm. And cold. The cold air is going to last another day and then warm back up on Wednesday. Forecast calls for good wind the next two days and then nothing again for awhile.

There was no sign of wind up until after 2:00pm Saturday afternoon. It looked like the wind wasn't going to show up, contrary to the forecast. Then the wind started. Nothing real strong but gusting close to 20 knots. There were lots of kites on the beach waiting. And waiting. The wait was worth it - the wind was wonderful. 12 kites on the water, all in the "sweet spot," made things a bit crowded and crazy but it all worked out okay. The forecast doesn't look so good for this week.

The wind blew hard all day yesterday and looks like it will do the same today. Saturday looks a lot more mellow. Once the wind came around from the northwest yesterday it was nuking and stayed that way all day. By 3:00pm no one was on the water. It was too much work to be on the water with my 10M kite and I was all alone, so I went home early. Today I'm working, so I'll see you all Saturday.
