February is Almost Here

January has had its good weeks and not so good weeks but still had plenty of kiteable days. There has been a lack of nuking days but that isn't all bad. Lighter wind is great for the beginners and for working on new moves without the worry of getting hammered. It also makes sitting on the beach much more comfortable. The social aspect of this sport is an important part of the fun of going to the beach at every opportunity. We have a great band of kiters here.
We just lost two of our anchor kiters as Glenn and Sue are on their way back to Canada. They will be missed. Glen has a nice variety of moves, and he does all of them with a smoothness that makes his style unique. It was great to see Sue's confidence and enthusiasm and proficiency grow during her stay and she's an inspiration to the other female kiters that are coming out to take up the sport. Way to go you two - hope to see you next year.
February is almost upon us and the forecast is calling for some strong wind. February is often our best month.

Another Nice Day

Here are some photos that Greg took of me having fun on a Sunday. We were hoping for some nuking wind today but settled for 15 to 20 knots. This week looks a little weak, but should be okay.

Great Weather

The wind hasn't been perfect but the days have been warm and sunny. Water temperature is a cool 61 degrees. Several people showed up today but at different times and I don't think we ever had more than three kiters on the water at one time.

More Wind on the Way

The last couple of days have been quiet for wind but it has been good in general for the last couple of weeks and it looks like we might get several days in a row starting today. Not too many people have been showing up to kite which is too bad but it sure makes it easy to relax and have a good time out there. I have to work today and probably won't make it out to the beach but I'll be out there soon and I'll try to remember to bring my camera as I haven't had much to post lately.

Perfect Wind

We have had good wind for a week now and today it was almost perfect. It started out a little strong and gusty but by 2:00 pm it had smoothed out and was wonderful.
