Perhaps someothers will take advantage of this late season NE

Good luck to all!!!
Thanks for the heads up. The Windomatic at Delray has it at 13 to 18 kts. average around 15 kts. right now. Also, no squalls on the radar, time to hit it!

Have a good session.

Hope your able to get some time in Rick, I powered out a 2.5hr session.
Sargasum (seaweed) was THICK and I feel a few lice. But it was WELL worth it. I hadn't inflated a kite in weeks and was having some serious withdrawls :shock:

Glad it was a good session, it does seem like a while since the last wind. I saw some huge mats of sargassum offshore in the Straits yesterday flying back from Abaco. Well, it sure is here now!

It was a good day, not nuclear but worlds ahead of extended calms. It was good to get out for a while.

I saw a couple of other guys up and down the cost. How did folks do tonight?

07-20 @ 11:50AM

I've checked the radar, I've watched the trees and I've looked at all the cams and wind graphs.

It's B-L-O-W-I-N-G and I can't take it anymore. I'm hitting the beach (Boynton Inlet/North side). looks to be 16m'able

Hope it doesn't peater out and I can enjoy the rest of the day on the water :lol:

7-20 @ 1:34 (packed up and off the beach)

Like a parched man chasing a mirage in the dessert, the doldrums of July fooled me into bailing out of work to hit the beach. In search of the wind that I watched all morning.

Be it the EXTREME heat or just the way Mother Nature toys with ones mind. I did my best and was not rewarded. So here I sit back at work, trying to focus. But only dreaming of the days that I have to make a choice between my 10m or 8m :roll:

I'm just about ready to sacrifice....... a kite, a board, heck if I knew of any virgins. I know the wind gods would reward us all. Rather then to continue this torture. I just want to RIDE

Just got back from Surf Expo. Per tradition, there was no wind during the show. Strange how that works out.

Sounds like a nice downwind session. I'll have to head up that way and give it a go. You do get some nice swells up that way at times too.

WIND ALERT!!!

It is 18 gusting to 21 kts. SSE at Delray, 3:15 pm, 9.19.06. No squalls nearby for the moment. It MAY shift offshore from the SW but it is still rideable for now.

Go get some if you can!

WIND ALERT

14 kts. gusting to 16.5 kts. Sunday, 9 am at Delray. This isn't forecast, isn't thermal but it's here. Get some if you can.

I see it is about 15 kts. at Fowry. Some of this may make it in closer to shore down there. It may even build or then again it might vanish?
