On the Horizon

Today is Friday, the 31st of December and the forecast is calling for very little wind. Tomorrow should be better as well as Sunday. The really good news is that it looks like we may get several days in a row starting Tuesday. The fly in the soup is that the weather forecast calls for clouds, cool temperatures, and maybe a little rain.

Fun Times

It's too bad that the wind has been poor so far this season because when it blows a bunch of people show up and it is like a big party on the beach. It can get a little hectic out there with kiters of all different levels in a small area. But it has been fun. The forecast was looking good for the up coming week but this morning they've changed their predictions and who knows what we'll have. We can only hope.

Looking Better

The wind kicked in for a good afternoon session. Tomorrow is supposed to be good as well and late in the week we should start a way overdue multiple day blow.

Two Days

Two days. That's all we get are two days of wind after waiting all week. I hope 2011 is better than the last year for wind. Just like last year the water temps are staying several degrees too warm to create the thermals that bring in the good consistent wind.

And even though the weather has been perfect for just hanging out at the beach, there has been almost no one out there and the restaurant Bonifacios appears to be closed. Today, Christmas Day, looks like a great day (although without wind) to do almost anything. The Soggy Peso will be open and that is where I plan to spend part of the day.

Merry Christmas

Promises, promises

Forecast keeps promising wind a few days out but as the dates get nearer, the forecast gets weaker. We may get some wind this weekend but it is already looking weak. The next chance for wind isn't until Thursday the 23rd.

Water temp is finally below 65 degrees, but still about 5 degrees warmer than usual. Last year was warm as well and the wind sucked then too.

This past weekend had good wind, although it would back off a bit at times. Only a few kiters showed up. One new kiter is Jackie, a newbie from the Gorge who is doing great and improving daily.

This week's forecast doesn't look so good.

Wind, Yes!

This weekend looks good for wind. Weather is warm and the water is still in mid 60's !!

I guess that I've been missing some decent sessions. The weather forecasts look okay but then there is very little evidence of wind here in town. Without some kind of confirmation that there is wind I hesitate to drive out there, especially if I've been working most of the day. It would be great if we had a web cam or weather station out there that we could access online. There is Internet at the restaurant, Bonifacio's, and I am pretty sure we can use their connection.

Anyone out there willing to help?

I am going to search to see what is out there for cameras that we can aim remotely and that don't need a computer to interface with the Internet. Anyone with any experience with such a device?
