Sweet day at Crandon. Averaging at least in the 20 knots. And man was it gusty. Thank god for depower.

But even with the gusts it was nice and solid wind and some really nice riding. Will do it again in the morining. Will have to see what the winds are forecast to be.


Edit:

Wow. Just checked iKite. Consistant gusts upper 30's to low 40's (mph) all afetrnoon with a rock solid 20 knots. Guess the meter is back up

14 gusting to 18 here with an occasional 20 here in Pompano. All I have to say where the heck is everyone? I was down at 1000 s trimming a thruster 8m for like 2 hours with a little skimming I was surprised there wasn't many out... Polo.

Who got some wind over the weekend? Grabbed some in Islamorada and Palm Beach. It was on the lighter side but nice to get back into it.

Outstanding or what???! Some nice conditions today. Probably best for a 9 or 10 m but in new kites I have 7 to 12 +. Figured I would risk the 7 m, rigged it big and hope for the best. I was amazed to come to shore to retune it for LESS power. It doesn't boost all that great in marginal winds but for ripping in strong winds, in and around waves it works well. Locking in most of the time too.

How else got some good water time in?

Default Very Windy

Wind was extreme all day, 30 knts up to 40 knts, to much for my 10 meter switchblade which is sadly my smallest kite atm. I decided to drive out to EB to see what was going on, noticed some 7s and maybe smaller not sure. Watched as mike hall and billy parker did some huge jumps and kite loops

Had about 15-20 knots in the keys today. Very nice riding. Solid wind too because it was just coming rocksolid off the water coming inland. Just enough side on to get you safely out there.

30 -40 knots??? Where was this?
