Missed it again, second day in a row too. Hope no one got caught in the wind shift offshore. Looks like a weak cold front in late July?! Amazing, times are changing. It looked nice until around a little after 6 pm. Next time.

Hey Rick,
Yup You sure did miss it.. The last two days werent bad at all in Boynton. We were all out on 15s and had a great session for July. Yesterday at around 600 pm the wind did shift or totally died. I was right near the beach so i just swam in..The kite just fell right down and that was it . There was also a local news crew at out spot covering the drowing of a lobster diver from Delray. Sad to hear that..He drifted from delray to Gulfstream...

Sorry you missed it too. I noticed it went off again yesterday, was good for a few hours then dropped like a rock and shifted offshore again. As long as I keep missing these sessions looks like you guys will be in for some good thermal winds?

Hi All,
We all had a great Lightwind day yesterday at our spot. We were all on 15s and had a blast. I never realized how great a light wind day can be,Sunny,Wind, Clear Water it was beautiful...After a while a few of us started racing each other back and fourth.. Didnt see anybody out in Delray but there was a kite or two up near the inlet. I would give yesterday a 10 not for the wind but for an overall lightwind fun day. Late afternoon it was all gone...Hope some of you others got out !
