I'm up in Tucson but it doesn't look like I'm missing any wind. Since I don't see any wind in the forecast until maybe Saturday, I am in  no hurry to get back. See you all this weekend. Don

Beautiful Beach Day

Saturday was a great day at the beach - we even got to kite for a while. A bunch of us showed up expecting good wind but arrived to quiet conditions and hot temperatures. Once in a while the wind would pick up and we'd hustle onto the water only to return to the beach ten minutes later. Finally, the wind came around at 4:00pm and gave us a great late session. The weirdest part of the day was how warm the water was. I was wearing my lightest shorty wet suit and was not cold at all. That is nuts for this time of year.

We'll Take It!

Yesterday was good early but then it got really light and stayed light for most of the afternoon. It didn't matter, we still all got a session in.

It was very good for people new to the sport; here's Julie (the one not smiling) after a round of body dragging.

Finally - Wind and no Work

It has been a while since I've been on the water. Today and Saturday are looking good and I'm not scheduling any work for these days. Forecast for next week calls for light wind but from the right direction so you never know - it could be good all week, or not. I'm due for a trip across the border so I'll miss the first part of the week.

Nothing to Report

Haven't had wind in a while. Today is cloudy, a little rain, and no wind. Forecast calls for wind on Wednesday, but just the one day. Monday or Thursday could surprise us with enough wind. Next Sunday may start our next good blow.

Water Still Nice

Water temp is cooling down but it still isn't bad. I'll be switching to my dry suit soon as I'm having circulation problems in my fingers and it is aggravated by the cold. The wind was good yesterday and should be even better today and Wednesday.

Missed It

It was supposed to blow yesterday so I spent the afternoon at the beach and had a  light wind session. Today the forecast was for less wind so I didn't even bother to check to see what was going on. Someone told me this evening that it was blowing out there in the afternoon and I just checked the wind history for today:
Sure enough, we had wind. Damn.

It's looking okay for Monday and better on Tuesday.
