Coyote and 3rd Ave WNW!!!!

Postby buckidge » Sun Apr 28, 2013 12:34 pm

" Coyote and 3rd Ave WNW!!!!! " As the ikite forecast for today.

Any idea what is the reason for such a big use of exclamation points? What is he implying? It seems pretty normal and okay to me...

Lol. Yeah, I think they didn't pay attention for the past couple of days. Forecast was saying WSW. It was obviously a mistake but they probably received a few emails from angry riders who didn't make it to the beach thinking it would be off shore. :mrgreen:

What provides a better forecast? Or maybe a good complement ?

I could be totally wrong but it seems to me that the blue line on iKitesurf seems to be much more accurate than the human forecast.

Unless there is a cut off low or marine surge. Then the human usually seems to be right.

Or ask Sonny. ;)
