Semana Santa

Today and tomorrow appear to be our last chance to kite before the crowds and traffic really hit town. That is, if the wind cooperates. The forecast has been looking good but has weakened this morning to the point that it is very questionable. Maybe I'll bring out the 30M kite.

I'll be going to Tucson for most of the week, but for the rest of you - time to party!

There hasn't been a lot to report but the main reason for the lack of posts is that I've been busy with work and teaching kiting. I've got to make more time to enjoy paradise. The forecast for this week doesn't look too promising but you never know. Almost daily they change the forecast such that a day that was supposed to be good changes to nothing and a southerly day turns into a good northwesterly. We just have to play it day by day. A lot of days the air temperature is getting into the 80's but the water hasn't warmed up very much.

The beach is starting to get crowded already on the weekends and Semana Santa is coming in a week. This puts a lot of people dangerously close to the action. We need to consider getting better organized and maybe posting warnings about entering the kiting area. In some other areas the kiters have formed a legal organization and received a use concession for a section of the beach they use. I would hate to see us be banned due to being incompatible with other peoples use of the beach.

Having Fun

Nothing new to report. We've been getting enough wind to have fun. Weekdays are wonderfully empty of crowds. Everyone is working on different stuff and everyone is doing great. Today the wind was smooth, steady, with flat water. I'm hoping tomorrow is just as good. Forecasts keep changing and can't be counted on.

Jorge and Poulette are getting married tomorrow. Congratulations to a great couple!

If it is Saturday then Los Espriu must be kiting. Today was no exception. The wind was light but it was enough. Here is a photo of father and son.

Best Wind of the Season

Not everyone likes it when the wind blows really hard but a bunch of us do and we've had a week of it. Forecast calls for a little less today and tomorrow and then a few days off.
