Start of the Season?

Northwest wind today. Not a lot but enough to get out there and play, probably 12 to 15 knots. Tomorrow may be the same. Thursday and Friday are looking better, maybe 20 or more knots. This will make a good week and may be the start of something. Hope so!

Great Day at Nahant

Nahant is a beach in Lynn, Massachusetts. I'm in the area visiting my parents. A strong weather front was predicted to pass through the area so I went out a bit before it was due. Wind was gusty. But the gusts were beautiful. I could relax between gusts and then be ready when they came. I'm using a 127cm board  with big fins that is so easy to dig in, let go, and boost straight up. And real floaty. I would just hang there and then land nice and soft.

Lots of room.

The beach is more than a mile long and there was never more than four kites on the water.

The weather passed by, a bit north of the beach. I could see the lightening but didn't think much about it. Later I saw in the news that two women were struck by lightening at a beach north of where I was. They are not expected to survive. Things can change so fast.
