Go Jesus!

First, here is a photo of our kiteboard hangout building:

The wind on Friday was very light and marginal for most of us, but it worked out great for Jesus. Most of you regular kiters know Jesus. He's the guy that comes down from Nogales a couple of times a month,  puts his kite in the air and keeps it there all day as he practices his kite flying skills. All that practice paid off as he was finally comfortable getting the board on his feet and he was popping out of the water and getting full runs on the board in both directions. Congratulations Jesus! 

Forecast for Saturday and Sunday looks good. Buoy says 15 to 20 knots both days.

Oh, about the building. I was told that it is being remodeled into a bar/restaurant called La Salsa.

It's been a quiet week so far but there is hope for Friday and Saturday. Bring big kites if you have them, or buy a new Cabrinha. I'm jealous of Ramon's new kite. It is so efficient in low winds and handles the big blows as well. New is better.

It's Been Blowing

Three great days with one more mellow day yet to come. I thinks it's been the windiest days we've had all year.

Don't Miss This One

The forecast is saying that we are going to have nice wind later this week. Starting Wednesday and going maybe until Saturday. Water temperature charts show that the water is still only about 70 F, but it sure feels warmer than that. Several people are already kiting without wetsuits. Last year we had some good sessions until well into June. Check out the blog from last May, and June,

Just in case we don't have such good luck this year we should all make an effort to be kiting this week.

Nasty Good

Today was gusty with changes in direction. mostly too northerly, and still it was a great day. A couple of  kitemares but nobody got hurt. There's a chance of wind tomorrow and then nothing until next Wednesday. Water temperature is still only about 70F but it sure felt warmer than that.

Vacation's End

The beaches have been busy during this vacation week called Semana Diabla. No wind for the weekend, but we had one of our best kiteboarders here to celebrate his birthday. Happy Birthday Nico!

Next Week

It's been a good start for April. We'll have a few days off and then next week is starting to look strong. It is showing big wind for Tuesday and Wednesday but I'm hoping it is delayed a day because I have to work all day Tuesday.

April Warmth and Wind

Weather is wonderful. Warm temperatures and nice wind. The water has warmed up to about 72F. Monday was good, today was good, and tomorrow is looking good.

Someone left their harness behind and Scott picked it up. He plans on being at the beach tomorrow. Check your gear.
