Not a bad day at all today... I didn't get cold while out there... Just a 4/3 wetsuit and some booties.. My head did get cold when crashing into the water.. but that was only for a minute... Othewise, totally worth it.. Up and down winds but I suspect it averaged out to 14-15mph.... I am loving my new kite, but hate inversions... I spent some time trying to figure out how to prevent them and get out of them in the shallow water... I think they can be prevented with just a slight amount of rear line tension... takes some tuning, but if you set the stopper ball so that the kite barely says in the air, when you let go and it hits the water, it will prevent inversion.. On the other hand, if you let the bar go all the way to the extreme depower, when the kite hits the water there is a good chance of an inversion... On another note, I found that the kite is controllable while inverted... I could probably even ride the kite in inverted to the beach... probably not good for the kite though...
I'm surprised. The graph looked weak so I didn't bother. What am I missing about the conditions as reported on iW versus on the water?
Check the Sherman meter from 2 pm until 6 pm. Flat out 20 mph, almost no up and down.
I know the launch is messed up, but is there any some other way to get into the water this time of year?
Ollie, if OB has the only wind tomorrow (NW) are you going to head out there?
