What do you think. Enough east in the forecast for the Whale. I always hate dead on NE forecast for the keys becuase its a hit or miss situation. A little too much N in the NE and its shutdown. A little more E in the NE and its lit. Anyone gamble?

Default Where to kite @ palm beach/Del Ray, visiting

Intermediate Kiter visiting, and looking for good locations to kite around palm beach Sunday with this wind. Prefer to get some local knowledge before heading out. Thanks in advance.

You will likely find other riders close to Palm Beach in Jupiter to the north or Delray Beach to the south. There are waves in both spots, perhaps around 3 to 4 ft. maybe a bit more off Jupiter currently. More about each riding area in this forum in the stickies.

Great wind weekend and out of no where. Well almost from the advanced forecast, was a great set of conditions. Who got some riding time in? Was able to hit it both days for a while.

Nah. Got the short end of the stick. For some reason NOAA got stuck on the forecast for the Keys. It never went past Friday AM and I didnt notice. It switched from 15-20 to near 15. My last few experiences with near 15 have been pretty cruddy. Low and behold Im out midday Saturday and the wind is honkin. By that time it was too late and Sunday was out of the question.

Big mistake for so close to season end. Glad someone got to ride.

Glad some got some time in across the Keys. Had some waves on Saturday off Palm Beach Cty., smaller on Sunday but less chopped up due to the wind shift to side shore. It was blowing 24 kts. at points Sunday. Hope we get some more before things are turned off for the summer. Strange wind year we've been having.

Al lI know is I didnt get nearly enough riding in this season. It was exhausting looking for wind. Im gonna have to fork out some dough for a FS Silver Arrow 19 or Zephyr to get some summertime riding. I will laugh if we get consistent 15-20 knot easterlies all summer.
