Strong Wind

Good strong wind today that should continue tomorrow.

The season cranked up on Wednesday and it looks like the wind is going to really blow today. Maybe gusts over 30 knots. We've had a few beginner kiters showing up and making good progress but they'll get spanked today.

Here is a photo of Roland getting one of his first good runs on a board. Remember those sessions?

Wind is Trying

The wind has been blowing WNW (or something close) pretty much every day but not quite hard enough. Tomorrow looks better and then it should really kick in starting Thursday.

Friday was wonderful! The water and air temperatures were both in the mid 80's, and the wind was strong and stable. October kiting is the best. Tomorrow looks like no wind but several days next week could be good. Any day with NW or WNW wind has the potential to bring enough wind. Right now that includes Sunday and Tuesday and then for sure good wind starts Wednesday and lasts the rest of the week.

Harness Left Behind

We had a good weekend for wind, although Sunday was pretty light. The forecast doesn't look too encouraging. We are already getting some clouds from hurricane Paul, which should stay on the outside of Baja.

Dan, from Tucson, was kiting this weekend and left his harness. This was his email to me:

hey don, I was down kiting this last weekend and left my harness sitting on the the cement in front of the abandoned building.  it was left sunday at sunset.  its a dakine pyro black and white.  if you see it or hear that anyone has it, please let me know.

The Season Has Started

The season is off to a good start. Wind was strong and the water is still warm. The weekend should be awesome.

Right On Time

It looks like the first multiple day stretch of good wind is coming. WindGuru says that it will start this Thursday and go at least through Sunday.

Wind of the Week

It blew all afternoon today but it looks like we'll be waiting at least a week to see it blow again. Only a few showed up but San Carlos, Hermosillo and Ciudad Obregon were all represented.

Sunday Was Wonderful

Unfortunately, I didn't bring my camera. It was a great day at the beach, which made it a little crowded with all the people in the water and on the water, also jet skis and boats. The wind and the water were the stars of the day. The water was warm and the wind was strong.

Buoy is calling for 10 to 14 knots today - not much, but maybe enough to have fun. The rest of the week looks weak.
