Just stopped by the beach in that area over lunch. Waves are building and you can see wind lines being driven from the NE. I think it is build, thanks to the gradient between TS Gustav and the system to the north. It's 16 - 18, avg. 16 kts. ENE in Delray currently. Barring storms, didn't see much of that at lunch, it is ON!

Nice session today at Delray. I was a little worried about being swept over by a particularly nasty feeder band from Gustav just south down the coast earlier today. It looks like Gustav pulled far enough west to yank the feeder bands west with it and off my part of the east coast. Had no squalls at all for the second day session. I had a choice between 13 m and 7 m in new flat kites. Have several in between but they are a couple of years old. So, I opted for the 7 m. Guys were out on 9 to 12 m, must have been pretty lit on the larger kites. I did ok with quite a bit of sining at critical points. Well offshore about a mile out I could lock it in quite a bit. Even saw a pod of dolphins out there! They kept sounding and swimming off so I couldn't manage to get them to jump when I did. Next time! I hope no one went out in the squalls earlier today. It's sunny now and this one is over, til next time. Fingers crossed on those systems.

How did you do today?

Haha~ Great job there on the 7m Rick, We went over to the West coast and Surfed the Jetties in Venice, FL

It was Fantastic, Chest to 1-2ft Over head with 20+mph Offshore winds. Seems as though there is still some wind here (PBC) this am along with a some waist to chest high surf. I'm off to the beach w/my 14m and surfboard!!!

Gustav has been good to FL~

Sounds like fun, surf on the SW coast, there's a contrast! It was good this morning then the wind backed off, great swells too! I kept switching from my smaller to monster board, fun stuff either way. See it is blowing through nicely right now. Lots of guys are catching up on all that no wind time over the last few days.

How did folks do today?

Sorry guys, it looks like it has changed. Lots of weather inbound. Doesn't seem to have a lot of large holes either at this point.
