It's blowing right now, looking out the window, lots of whitecaps and one windsurfer cruising up to Hs. Lordships.

I don't know how long it will last...

Blew for an hour, then switched off. Saw a couple of kiters. One was on a ram.

It's even blowing at Sherman. The graphs look pretty jagged, though. Is the reason you guys do storm kiting at Alameda because it's more protected? Less insane if the wind gets really gusty?

I just looked at the graph for Berkeley. I bet Charlie and Ollie are having a blast on their 12s. Pretty steady wind for November!

Storm kiting at Alameda is great. Spring kiting is best, winter storm kiting comes in second. The wind can be harsh and gusty, but sometimes it's just plenty strong. I'll take any chance to ride small kites there for the most part.
