Got out late, was well powered on a 13 m, could have gone a bit smaller. It was nice to have some "normal" spring wind for once. Who else got some?

Wow, nice session today or what! Winds 17 to 22 gusting to 25 kts. at one point. Fun times and no squalls in my area but some miles to the north and south at points. I was hoping to at least get 12 to 15 kts. per the forecast. Photos to come.

What a great day in parts of Palm Beach County. I know the wind was lighter at points to the north and south but we lucked out today. Winds were around 13 to 20 kts. for most of the day, ENE with some waves nearshore to go with. The water was clear and blue at points, almost felt like the Bahamas at times.

Hope some other kiters got some quality wind time in today. Tomorrow's winds should be more widespread by the forecast.

Better late than never ... WIND is on the way!!!

South Florida is forecast to have several days or more of wind in the 15 to 20 kts. range starting tomorrow. This May hasn't been that bad really, not nuking but rideable for quite a few days. Hope you can get out and grab some quality water time.

No, as far as I understand it, we're done riding there on weekends until after Labor Day. Its an annual tradition after all. You can hop a sea taxi boat to the flats however.
