We're in the normal light wind time of year but it looks kiteable in the SE currently in the low to mid teens. With luck we'll have thermals later on and the wind might build a bit. It is close to onshore so be sure to stay out of lifeguarded areas and at least 50 yards offshore. Have fun!

It looks like kiteable thermal winds are coming up off Delray Beach. It is in the low teens now but I have a feeling it may build. Fingers crossed and go grab some if you can.

It's blowing 16 to 18 kts. SSE in Delray right now! Get some if you can.

The prospects look poor from the forecast today:

"Rest Of Today: East northeast winds 7 to 12 knots. Seas around 2 feet. Dominant period 4 seconds. Intracoastal waters a light chop. Showers likely and scattered thunderstorms."
NWS forecast, http://fksa.org/showthread.php?t=6734

It picks up a knot or so over the next two days, but it still looks pretty light. There is also supposed to be some squalls moving through today that you will want to stay well out of. If it were clearer you might expect some thermals to increase the windspeed but with rain and overcast the they usually don't develop.

If you want to wind wait you might go to Delray Beach, about four hundred feet south of Casurina Road. The light wind out of the NE will blow you away from the out of bounds guarded and condo property to the north. If it is from the SE and light, go somewhere else with a safe lee shore to the north. Otherwise you'll go right into the out of bounds condo property and guarded beach. During this light wind spell, you may do better to work on your board skills at the cable park at Quiet Waters in Deerfield.

The wind turned on in Delray, Pompano and beyond. Currently, 14 to 17 kts. SSE in Delray way above the 5 to 10 kts. forecast.
