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: https://web.facebook.com/Club-Cortez-107073708108309

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.
