Fall/Winter Sessions 2009/10(Post them here)
We made it my fellow wind junkies! Summer’s over and the wind is back~ I’m so glad to see it too!
Time for a new thread, so we all can hear about other riders enjoyment/adventures in the South Florida area. Kiteboarding is exploding in my area(Palm Beach County) for sure, I’ve never seen so many kiters. It’s great to see all the stoke!

What’s the scene been like down in Delray Rick?

It’s been so good around here lately that I believe the only part on my body that isn’t sore would be my fingers ~lol~

Good winds ~n~ Be safe!

Hey Guys,

Welcome to winter, even though this wind is tropical in nature. Hell, we'll take it! Cold front winds will crank up soon enough.

Like lots of other people, got some nice riding sessions in three days over this and last weekend. Was even able to use the 9 m last weekend along with 11 and 16 m. Like those smaller kite sizes when there is enough wind for them. Big waves too!

There have been some nasty squalls but easy to avoid up this way with some input from radar. Not everybody chooses to avoid them then again, not everybody chooses to avoid readily dodged injury. So it goes.

Check this out from Saturday afternoon ...

After the rain passed
I've been slacking here and on my blog. Time~time where does all the time go?

I did get a chance to get in a fantastic sole session w/ Jeff Biege from BESTKITEBOARDING yesterday afternoon. We rigged BIG as the wind was lite and went strapless. We were able to squeeze in a fun hour+ w/1-2ft SE wind swell. Water temp is PERFECT this time of year!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a little somethin-somethin this weekend :cool:

Glad you guys made it out. I was able to get out on Sunday for a run down to Atlantic and barely back to kitebeach in Delray. The wind died! It was good while it lasted and at least I stayed off the guarded beach. Bring on those cold fronts!

HIGHFLYN 10-24-2007 08:06 PM

Yeah~ we kited also sunday and it was the same up in Boynton Rick (marginal) But hey we all got spoiled from the last 3 weekends now didn't we :D

Tonight was GOOD though! Pre cold front SSE wind , you had to hit the beach to see it. None of the meters (LW/BOCA) were even showing it. But it was there and we caught a solid powered hour 4:30 - 6:00pm. Flew a 13Bul & 12HP and mixxed up the session between a 125 & Surfboard. Surf was on the small side 1-2ft maybe. Super fun and totally stoked to be splashing around in the liquid playground~

Has everyone been getting some water time? The last two days had some good wind in the SE. Unfortunately, I missed out on most of that and have only been able to grab some late afterwork sessions into dark when even a 16 m may be a bit too small at times. Still, it sure is fun particularly with all the waves.

Got great DP sessions the last 2 days. Powered on 15M.
Fun waves and very steady wind.

Did folks get out today, how was it? I went north for a change to a launch I haven't been to in a couple of years. It was mighty fine, not much chop with nice ground swells forming intermittently. The wind filled in a while later and it went off for hours all afternoon like that. Didn't see any spinner sharks but heard they have been seen in the area.

How did you do?
