Early Wind

The wind came up early today, really early. Before 10am. It mellowed out in the afternoon but I just checked Glen's meter and it is saying 20 mph at 5:15pm. As you can see in the photo below it was a quiet day on the water, perfect for beginners.

Meli & Lorenia, where are you?


After a week of wind weaker than the forecast we had a good blow when the forecast said 10 to 13. It was blowing 20 knots for a while Saturday and it was just a beautiful day at the beach. Buoy Weather is saying 8 to 11 knots for today, but who knows? The week coming up doesn't look too good.

Ten to Fifteen Knots

We've been getting a steady diet of around 10 to 15 knots. It's not what we are accustomed to here but it's okay. The water is still warm, low 80's, and the surface is flat. Plus, these are just great days to be out on the beach. If you come out to kite it is best to bring a 12M or bigger, although I was out on my 9M yesterday.

Another nice day at the beach. Tomorrow more of the same and then more wind Monday.

Consistent Winds

We are getting northwest winds just about every afternoon. The only problem is that most days it has been light, often staying below 15 knots. 12M kites have been doing well. It looks like this will continue all week, possibly blowing a little harder after the weekend.

The warm water has been great, and most days there are only a few kites out on the water.

ATV's  have been a problem and there are still areas of lots of trash left from a storm a month ago.

Mild Winds

This week, starting today, we are looking at a possibility of 15 knot winds most any day. Especially today, tomorrow and then again Friday.

Good Winds and Big Tides

With that big moon out there the high tides have been the highest I've seen here.

AND.....The wind is back. The next few days will be somewhere between good and great. Windguru is calling for west to northwest winds and Buoy Weather is saying stuff like WNW 15 to 20 knots. Starting Thursday. Buoy has been pretty accurate.
