merry christmas!!

22 12 2016

well christmas is coming! but the wind…. hmmm maybe…. maybe not.

the forecast is very unreliable when there’s not much windspeed, so hopefully it’s wrong. i’m sure it will be light over the christmas weekend, but hopefully 8-12kts? 8kts is not so good, but 12 is fine. and there will be no waves! great conditions for learning, as long as there is enough wind.

and then a bit of a blow coming in from wednesday – new year should be typically windy and sunny. nice!!!

lovely wind november 29 – december 5 in pranburi

28 11 2016

looks like we have some niceĀ northerlies!! at last!!

the highest point for wind will probably be friday, although the weekend looks great too. if you like waves that is, and as i love to say…. ‘we love waves!!!!’

have a look at the tidal chart here, normal high tide is about 2.2m and it’s going over 2.6m sat/sun. that means big waves and lots of current! all fine if your kit is well taken care of, and you avoid the sandbanks.
awesome fun if you have a surfboard šŸ™‚

Rainy season slim chance wind update

8 06 2016

aka: lessons in thermals….
Looks like we may have kitesurfing wind for a little longer. it’s a pure thermal, so it doesn’t show up on the forecast at all. well it shows up in the direction, but not the windspeed numbers. i look at the direction arrows more than the numbers. actually a little bit of offshore wind high up (1km or so) will assist the thermal in forming, as it helps the return of hot air offshore so it can sink and come back inshore. too much gradient wind doesn’t help, it just all comes down to earth and we get offshore or no wind here. it’s a delicate balance so it’s very very difficult to predict. but the last few days we’ve had 10-14kts for a couple of hours, and no rain, so hopefully we’ll get a few more days of it.
fri/sat looks ok, sunday maybe, we’ll have to see. a lot can change in a couple of days…
