The ups and downs…

riding 11am-4pm 14-22kts

wind is never steady. if the forecast says 14kts average it will be 12kts about 50% of the time and 17kts about 50% of the time. on an average day there are 20-30 seconds between the changes, but then slight flickers around every 7 seconds.

what does that mean for kitesurfing? hold your wind meter up for more than 2 seconds!! and better still – look at other people on the water – and use your eyes.

today was on the wrong side of gusty – up to 22 and down to 14. that makes it hard to choose a kite size!! variations of ‘damm where’s the wind’ to ‘holy s$%#!!!!!!’

i think the wind’s about to change…
