Faulty Weather Forecasts

The wind forecasts have been way off lately. They have been predicting light winds, but we have been having 20+ knots every day. Yesterday, Saturday, was no exception. Strong winds, a bit gusty, had everybody rigging small except for a visitor that rigged a 15M kite upwind from our normal spot. I didn't even notice him go past, but he was soon down the beach and walking back. If anybody who reads this blog comes down to join us, please come to the Hangout to get the low down on the site and some friendly advise, not to mention a cold beer afterwards.
I use the wind forecast sites of Wind Guru and Bouy Weather to keep track of how other places are faring and in order to plan possible kite boarding trips but I have to question their accuracy. If anybody out there has some first hand wind reports of other areas you can send them as a comment below or email me at and I will post them.

Anyway, the wind has been great and here are a couple of photos from yesterday's session.
