Well it looks like we finally have some agreement across all three forecast today. Currently we have cloudy skies and mild temperatures with the wind blowing 9 MPH side offshore from the Northwest. WF-WRF model, Belmont wind graph, and Mike are all calling for that wind to slowly turn and build into the early/mid afternoon. Then a slight drop with the wind having a slight rebound in the early evening. Yesterday's wind kicked in a bit higher than the forecast, and I'm wondering if we'll see the same today with slightly higher numbers. This could also mean a bigger drop if it does fill in more than projected so be mindful around late afternoon. I'm saying we'll see that nice little build as projected, but possibly a bigger drop as Belmont never seems to fail with quick exit wind. Should be a fun one out there for the foil folks, and those with big kites and big twin tips eager to get out.
To start making these blogs a bit more engaging I want to begin doing a topic/question of the day. Each day at the end of the forecast write up I'll ask a kiteboarding question of you, and would love to see your answers in the comments below. I think this can add to the following days blog by creating discussion topics we all might find fun or useful. For this first one lets make it fun! Ok, here we go!
Why do you kiteboard? Is it a stress relief? Is it a way to get out extra energy? Do you love the mechanics of it? Tell me what keeps you coming back each day!
Stoked to read your response! As always happy kiting!
