Wind Today!

Buoyweather is calling for decent wind today so let's all get out there. The forecast for the next week doesn't look so good.

Start of Season in San Carlos

Friday brought some nice northwest breezes. Jeff, Scott and myself showed up for a very good session with winds gusting at times up to 25 knots. Hoping for more of the same today.

Post Hurricane Post

Hurricane Earl blew through here last night but was week enough and stayed far enough away that it was no big deal. I got in a nice session early yesterday and again today. I thought the beach would be packed with kiters but I was almost alone. Wind at Chapin was side onshore 15 to 22. I guess that wasn't good enough for most kiters. I assume the majority went to the south side. I checked the wind report when I got back to the cottage and it was blowing up to 40 mph down there. Too much for my 10 meter kite in crowded conditions. Tomorrow should be another good day.

Calm Before the Storm?

I've been on Cape Cod for a dozen days but have only had a few sessions of medium winds.
Lately the weather has been great for just about anything that doesn't require wind. Here are a few shots of the beach today.

Tomorrow Hurricane Earl should be off the coast of coast of North Carolina and bringing big waves and wind to that area.
In two days the hurricane is supposed to start passing by here.
