You were spot on that one Rick :wink:

Saturday was an epic day for the Southeast ~ Flat, crystal clear water and PUMPING winds 18-23 kts before the front line passed then it kicked up to 22-27kts. Flew a 10m & 120 x 38cm ALL DAY

Sunday wasn't as consistant, good winds to start @ 16-18kts but tapered off as the day went on. Plus the conditions were really punchy (lulls/gusts).

Would NEVER complain though, Not only was there wind
But it was good wind & it fell on a weekend :P

Saturday was a great day and a great start to frontal season. Sunday was a bit uneven. Mainly because of the waves and apparent wind, I used my smaller board and ended up doing more walking. Despite that it was still good. Looking forward to the next front.

We can guess when the wind will turn on at various launches and whether or not there will be squalls at the leading edge. Here's to a full season of wind!

Yes, Saturday was a great day here at Biscayne Bay,
however, Sunday afternoon was good, but it was not consisted as you mentioned and it was a bit gusty.
Indeed, we are lucky that good winds come by on the weekends!

Yeeha! It's here again. I was going to venture a guess at time of arrival this morning but it was already pumping 19 mph at Jupiter so it was likely just a matter of a few hours.

See you out there!

It's old news at this point but for the record it is 18 gusting to 21 kts. at Delray currently. The wind is on, but so is work. Next time.

Sounds good, enjoy it! Funny thing about being on the injured list, you start to ignore forecasts and even actual wind conditions. Amazing but true. Grab some joy out there.
