Another Day of WNW?

The forecast keeps changing. We were promised some wind for today but this morning it says not so much. However, now Buoyweather is saying WNW 12 to 17 for Wednesday afternoon. Now, if I can just get my kite to hold air - the valves keep coming unglued, one at a time.

More NW

Marcos and I got out yesterday on his 13M kite. (My 12M kite had a leaking valve.) Light conditions but it was great to get out on the water in the summer. We were joined by a kid from Phoenix that had a 17M kite. Just a nice day!

Today the forecast is saying NW wind but even lighter. I don't think it ever got up to 15 knots yesterday so anything lighter is going to be tough. Buoy says 9 to 12 WNW.

We got northwest wind in July!

It is supposed to blow even better tomorrow!


The wind forecast is looking good enough for Sunday to go out and play over by Condos Pilar. Forecast is for more wind in the afternoon but I would advise getting out there early, like before noon. You'll want to rig bigger than the wind feels, southerlies have less punch than the cold, dry northwest wind of the winter months. Let's have some fun!

Hmmm......just noticed that the forecasts are saying WNW wind today and tomorrow. I guess we'll see. Maybe we'll be kiting at Algodones....in July!
