Mid-week Delta Wind

Postby Pablito(guest) » Sun Jul 24, 2005 11:00 pm

The marine layer should deepen middle week and onshore flow should
increase as a trough approaches California. This will bring the
marine air into the Delta area and possibly into the adjacent valley
areas and cooling temperatures in the middle 80s to middle 90s.[I]

Dewey,
I was there for the good wind, but I was playing chase car for my girlfriend's downwinders.

By the time I got launched (around 6) it was getting lighter and by 8 it died completely.

I guess you still haven't got a 10M kite, huh?

I already blew my kite budget for, like, the next two years.

If you like the Outrages so much, how come you're getting a 9M Rapture instead of a smaller OR?

I don't like small high aspect kites. The 8 needed a lot of wind to get my but out of the water. I though that the 9m rap would do a little better. Never flown one yet though. Charlie loves his. A new one is less than $700, so why not give it a try???

That's good to know. I love my 10M kite (Liquid Force). It picks me way up out of the water. And I almost never use my 8, an older Airrush, so it hasn't been a priority to get a newer one. :shock:
