Nice metric, Ollie.

Here, I was able to open my windows before I went to sleep last night and it was cooler outside my house than in in the morning; also a good sign. I knew it would be blowing at Sherman first thing.

But I'm with Charlie on wondering if it's going to last. It's already heated up really quickly and will probably be just as hot as yesterday. I can't see how it isn't going to fade, especially with the graph bouncing up and down already; the only question is how long it will take into the evening to turn back on.

I so hope I'm wrong!

It says 10M, but it's really a 9.

It'll be even better tomorrow. I know because my last meeting is at 1pm, then I could go to the beach.

graph smaph

Cahrlie/Big D./Paul - you guys all know way better then to trust a graph??? right??? especially when it's created using data which is a few long reaches downind from where you kite, where the wind is totally different, especially during a Westerly marine surge like we are experiencing.......RIGHT???? Just kidding, it's a data point....

Seriously, Paul, when it's the push due to good fog bank, which we have now, the channel marker at the sign always reads gusty and too low.

I bet it was sick all day long today. 10/12m, whatever, just good. Don't need no crystal ball to forecast a bunch of solid days in a row.....

Too bad I don't have a board to ride - will have to find one to borrow....broke my board a few days ago.....big boys come down heavy when doing powered moves with one of them 'old school' C kites.....Thank god for the slingshot demo......

See you at the river, Z.

Z last year you got me on the water for several weeks with your loaner boards. I have a extra UG board that you could borrow for as long as you want. I don't ride it anymore, and Harriette hates being stored in the spare bedroom.
