The wind turned sweet today. I got out late, after 4pm and found 16 to 19 knots of wind blowing. It blew until the sun went down. It would be nice to have those conditions all the time. It was a good day to practice all of the few tricks that I know. Should have been trying out new stuff. But my favorite thing to do is still to boost big. I had my biggest boost ever on the outside. Nothing tops that feeling. I love it.

Today we had wind slowing building all day. It bodes well for the next few days. The prediction is calling for 30 knot gusts. It has been a while since we've had a good blow. We've seen a lot more marginal days than normal for this time of the year.

March Wind?

Usually March is a good month for wind here, but it is not starting out that way this year. The past ten days have had little wind and the forecast is calling for more of the same. We still get out a few days a week but mostly in light wind. The last couple of days it has blown early (before noon) and then tapers off in the afternoon. The forecasts have been useless as they have been wrong most every day.
Air temperatures have been normal lately, getting into the low 70's but we had a real hot stretch ten days ago and it is supposed to get back up close to 90 later next week. Water temperature is still cool, but starting to warm up - finally above 65 degrees.

New Riders

Kinsley is back in San Carlos. He brought about half a dozen other kiters with him from California. Several are very good riders and it will be fun to watch them do their moves for the next few days. Bring your camera.

Lots of Wind

Starting while I was still in Tucson and continuing until today it has been blowing. Some days the sand has been blowing head high. Great for launching big jumps.
