So even after 6 p.m. is wind ok? I fear wind shuts down around that time, that is why he doesn't kite there? You know Charlie, you took me once but if its a short sess like after work, would it worth trying to go there and kite? I am just curious.

I always see you guys out there from my window but unfortunatly I can't leave work until 5pm. I may take some early outs next week if the wind is good. The problem is that Berkeley shuts off at around 4:30-5 so by the time I get out there it is too late. I will keep posting though if I see wind out my window. At least someone is getting some!!!

We should be getting our two weeks of wind sometime soon here in Alameda. It has happened every year I have been kiting. UNfortunatly I was in the hospital last year. Hopefully it is starting now.
