Great Wind in San Carlos
We got back on Monday and had great wind Tuesday and Wednesday. It felt good to be back on home turf with wind on my back. There aren't a lot of kiters in town right now and during the week it is mostly just Roberto and myself and Gerald. Gerald is still in the beginning stages of learning the sport and is an inspiration considering he is in is mid 70's. A lot of days this time of year are cold and gusty with winds up to 30 knots - not ideal for learning but Gerald is out almost every day. The rest of the local crew are working people so they show up when they can, weekends and after work. Sometimes the late afternoon session is the steadiest wind anyways. I've been back over a week now and although I am getting in a lot of kiting days I sure miss that warm Caribbean water.
