Hope you're right. It would be good to see folks get some nice storm-free wind for a change.

I haven't had much luck with ikitesurf forecasts. Their realtime winds, weatherflow and other resources are great. The computer generated forecasts were rarely accurate however. How have they been doing lately?

Be sure to checkout the resources we have laid on for our area. Over time they've been pretty good with the odd exception at: http://fksa.org/showthread.php?t=6734

Now why do u have to try and burst my bubble

I hear ya. I'll use your resources and we'll see. I think with this area the iKite is a computer generated forecast and places like Hatteras and such have a live forecaster.

Nope, not in this case. The NWS forecast implies the same for Sunday (at the above link).

SATURDAY
EAST WINDS 10 TO 15 KNOTS. SEAS 2 TO 4 FEET.
INTRACOASTAL WATERS A MODERATE CHOP. CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS.

SATURDAY NIGHT
EAST WINDS 10 TO 15 KNOTS BECOMING 15 TO 20 KNOTS.
SEAS 2 TO 4 FEET. INTRACOASTAL WATERS CHOPPY IN EXPOSED AREAS.
SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.

SUNDAY
NORTHEAST WINDS 15 TO 20 KNOTS. SEAS 3 TO 5 FEET.
INTRACOASTAL WATERS CHOPPY IN EXPOSED AREAS. CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS.


We never had human forecasters checking the machine info down here in the past at ikitesurf. Have they added a forecaster down here?

Any iKite guys cruise the forum that can give us some feedback?

Im likin' that Sunday forecast. Nice direction too. It's time to dump the easterly and get some good coastal wind directions for a change. Lets keep it going til June!

I haven't seen any sign of a live forecaster in south Florida... It's all just computer forecasts, and they usually aren't that close... I've been pretty disappointed with iKite since I got here. At least it does give me some idea of what the wind is currently doing...

It's not Epic, But it's kiteable. None of the sensors are showing it either due to it being almost Due North. But from LW south it's 14-18kts and building

This is your chance to get your share of some Ocean "flat" water, before it swings around to NE this afternoon.


Peace~ I'm off to the beach

Wooooohoooo!..........Again

NE 20-25 knots for Friday and 15-20 for Saturday. Sunday time to recover.



From iKite: Crandon Station

10/28/08: The building to which we are attached is undergoing renovations. We plan to install a new station, but do not have a date just yet. We hope to have it up in a month or so. We apologize for the inconvenience.



That sucks the big one. Down for a whole month in prime time? What building is the sensor attached to thats under enovation? Anyone know?
