Something weird happened today. I was blown off of my 4.2. I couldn’t hang on, I could barely waterstart. Bottom turns were manageable, but top turns were out of the question, unless you went one handed and flagged the sail. Very weird, indeed. My suspicions were confirmed upon checking the meters: Frisco Pier was reading average 38 with gusts to 47 mph! Yes, yes, it was FREAKING WINDY out there.
It’s all good, though, because we scored a sweet day in The Cove! It wasn’t until the last hour that it went truly ballistic. The waves were in the chest to head high range, and most people were on 4.2-4.7 or 6-8 meter kites all day long. One thing is for sure: there are a lot of smiling, tired, sore bodies on this island tonight!
I took a bit of video from the beach, and tied on a GoPro while sailing too. Here are a few frames from the clew mount camera to tide you over until I get a chance to edit the vid:
There is a lot more wind in the forecast for tomorrow and this weekend too!! Come on out and join us!
