Not looking good on iKite for today.
Maybe OB?
Any suggestions?

Where are you looking on there ... model tables are reading 12m conditions everywhere starting at 3p for me

I think yesterday we had to overcome an a.m. off-shore flow, whereas today we have much stronger NW morning base to work with - you can definitely feel it in the wind chill here in the city.

(Edit: I hope?? - 3p wind still not here)

3:25 edit: let the games begin...

Nice day at Berkeley---there were at least seven or eight kiters out. Wind was light to moderate, so jumping was kind of wimpy, but warm weather and mild swells made for pleasant riding. Low tide meant lots of beach space for kites (not always the case).

OB hit 14 at around 3:45 and was "not enough knots" by the time I got down there.

4th day in a row at Berzerkley. You need to be down there at 2pm to catch it and its union wind, so it shuts down at 5
