Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
I pulled the forecast graph from ikitesurf's new site WIND ALERT....
RE: John Lindsay, not sure who John Doe is but I find Lindsay's report to be more than 50% accurate (maybe not total wind speeds but we do have wind), just like NWS/NOAA forecasts AS LONG AS TEMPS STAY BELOW 75 at beaches and inland 85. And as disclaimer I have been chasing wind locally for almost 20 years from Santa Barbara to Big Sur for paragliding and now kiteboarding:-)

It should also be noted that according to Kinsley it has blown 100% on his birthday which is Saturday April 13! It is just me that was switching dates/months around when we have had freak rain storms or high pressure. From now on, Pismo KiteXpo will always happen around Kinsley's B'day:-)
Keithdkd: I trust you saw the forecast Marina just posted in another thread?
I couldn't imagine the forecast looking much better unless they said "and we've added new artificial reefs to make the waves peel instead of closing out"
Looks like a nice forecast for Pismo - Have fun!! should be awesome and a shit show at the same time..
I don't think there is going to be any shortage of wind up north
