A Great First Day

Tuesday the wind was predicted to blow strong northwest. It only got up to 20 knots or so but it was steady and the water was warm. It was a great session and everybody was on the water for a long time. And I mean everybody, or almost everybody. Christian and I showed up before one o'clock, soon followed by Omar and then Fernando and Nico from Hermosillo. Soon Luque and Ricardo showed up.
Finally, late in the day Scott and José Luis made it out to the beach. Not a bad showing for the first day. We were hoping for a repeat the next day but the wind didn't cooperate. Now the forecast calls for nothing for the next week.

Almost Here

The season is coming to San Carlos. We have been having northwest winds almost daily, just not quite strong enough. Omar, from the Paridiso Hotel, has been getting out kiting on a big kite and big board but no one else has been tempted due to marginal conditions. Yesterday's forecast looked promising but all we got was 10 to 12 knots. Maybe it is time to break out the 30 meter kite again. Windguru is calling for decent wind on Tuesday. Scroll down after clicking on the Windguru link and you will see that the really good wind is in North Carolina. It has been good there all month.

Today was rainy, but that didn't stop a few local kiters. Here is Phil, from the local kite shop, kiting in the bay side of West Dennis Beach.

Windy but Chilly

We have had decent wind here in Cape Cod the last week but some days have been cloudy, rainy, and chilly. Today there wasn't any wind, but we should have some tomorrow. Tomorrow is Sunday, so hopefully a bunch of kiters will show up. During the week it has been kind of lonely out there. The photo below was during a quiet day on the Atlantic side of the Cape.

North Winds

The past few days have been good out at Chapin Beach as the wind has been blowing from the north. Mornings have been best, blowing up to 20 or so. Today was Labor Day and we had as many as 50 kites on the water and a bunch of windsurfers. Forecast looks good for a couple more days.
