Happy New Year, 2012

Lately the wind has either been very light or out of the wrong direction. Many days we only get in a short session of an hour or so. Today looks too light but Sunday looks promising as does much of next week. No strong winds but we'll have nice days and flat water. I may have to work this week. Así es la vida.

Glimmer of Hope

The afternoons have been nice out at the beach even though the wind has stayed too northerly and thus too offshore to be good for kiting. We may luck out for Christmas day and get some wind from the northwest even if it may be a little light. The same conditions or better are shaping up for most of next week. Come on out to the beach anyways - if the wind blows, great. If not, the weather is perfect for sitting in the sun and enjoying a brew or two.

The wind was decent all day but not many people showed up until late and several were still on the water after sunset. Water seemed warmer than usual - low 60's.

Christmas Forecast

What originally looked like a great Christmas forecast has taken a turn for the worse. Today, Thursday, looks fine but the direction is forecast to turn too northerly for the next couple of days. I hope that this is an erroneous report. We'll see what future updates have to say. Next week looks promising if you don't mind wind that is a little light.

Missing Anything?

Any day on the water is awesome and Thursday was one of those days. At the end of the day the last people to leave the beach usually take a look around and pick up anything left behind. Yesterday Scott and Jose Luis ended up with shorts, a bikini, and a girl's shorty wetsuit.

A Couple of Days A Week

It seems like all we can get is a couple of days of wind a week. The last two days have been good but Friday looks too light.  I'm hoping the wind comes back Sunday for a few days. The forecasts haven't been too reliable. We had a big group of kiters out on the water with school out and vacationers in town. Good times.

Good Day

Today went well. I've been offline for more than a week due to a computer virus but today Scott loaned me one of his and I am back in the cyber-world. The truth is that it was kind of nice being disconnected for a while. Also, today was good because we had wind. Nothing great, about 12 to 16 knots, but enough to get out on the water and have fun. I didn't think that the water felt too cold but the temperature chart says it is 62 degrees. Wind forecast continues to look poor. After a good start in October we've had very little wind, lots of clouds, even a little rain.
