Still Getting Some NW Wind

 As the season winds down we get some absolutely wonderful days. Today it started to blow before noon and blew all afternoon. It blew strong, although the warm air doesn't pack the punch we're used to. Warm water makes up for it.  Below are Beau and Othon going high.

One Day of Wind

 The season seems to be winding down early this year. We had one day lately. Yesterday. Almost perfect conditions. Warm air, warm water, flat seas, and steady wind. We had six or seven kiters on the water for a while. I don't often get photos or video of me on the water but this one is courtesy of Marsha.

When It Blows It Is Great

 The season is winding down already. A couple of great days and then nothing for a week or more. Here are a couple of videos from our last session. But we don't have anything good in the forecast.

Spotty Wind

 We had some wind during Semana Santa but then we had very little for a while. The last week has had some wind but some parts of some days it wasn't even enough for 17M kites. 

The building next to the Soggy Peso has reopened as a Membership/Activities Club. They are still working out the details of what its going to be but it has some promise. They have hi-speed internet  (they say) and offer space as shared office space for people who want to work remotely from a beach setting. They have some beach games available and will have kayaks and sailboats and stuff like spear fishing and kiting available including instructors. I asked if they could put up a video camera to live stream our kite area and they are getting right on it!

They don't have a web site up yet but they do have a Facebook page:

Weather is Heating Up

 Last weekend it blew hard. Not many kiters and even less people on the beach. The police had a check point set up coming into town and not letting non-residents without Covid tests/vaccinations come through.

Empty beach, Saturday:

After the weekend we had a couple of days off and now the wind is back and the temperatures have been getting into the 90's. We are at the peak of Semana Santa but the crowds are still moderate. A few more people at our end of the beach than is comfortable for kiting and also some ATV traffic.

Yesterday the wind came up early and was nice but then died off early to end up being a 12M afternoon.

 This past week the wind has been wimpy. Here is Julie getting as much as she can out of the wind. On a positive note, the water has been wonderfully flat.

Today and tomorrow(Saturday and Sunday) are looking very good and then not much until Wednesday.

The State Authorities are putting in roadblocks and restrictions for Semana Santa already. Don't know how that's all going to play out.

 More days with strong wind than days without wind. It's been good. Lots of 20 to 25 knot afternoons. Usually mellows out after 4:00pm or so. Water seemed to be warming up a couple of weeks ago but then it cooled off again and is in the low 60's right now. 

Most days there are only a few of us out on the water.

Beau's been ripping it up. Here is one of his more casual jumps.

One of the calmer days.

OK Wind

 Last week ended with some good wind. They took the fence down on Friday that was keeping us from driving to the end of the beach. After a few days of rest the wind came back but so did some clouds and the wind has struggled to get up to 20 knots. The fence also came back. What? 

They've been getting ready to open a new bar business next to Soggy Peso and I assumed that they were opening up access for parking for it. But today they put a new fence up. Doesn't make much sense to me so we'll have to wait and see what they have in mind.

The wind is supposed to blow strong the next three days. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

More Wind

 We continue having more days with wind than not. Often it starts out strong and gusty but evens out as the day goes on. It's looking a little bit lighter today, maybe 18 to 20 knots. I could use the break. The gusty and choppy days wear me out. I can't seem to bring myself to depower the kite. 😂

Juan Pablo from C.Obregon was showing some nice moves. It was just him and me that day.

Excellent Day

 Nice warm day with strong wind. At times it was gusty but when the wind was clean it was great. Here is Othon doing his thing - getting big air.

And this is me trying to keep up with him

Due To Popular Demand, The Blog Has Been Revived!

 It's been a while since I last posted anything but I'm going to try to get it going again. 

Yesterday was cloudy and the wind was okay but Sunday should be great. It was quiet on the beach and on the water. Here is Julie catching a little air.
