May 1st: Key Biscayne - Crandon Beach Park

A nice day with NE winds, starting around 15 knots and in the later afternoon increasing up to 20 knots. Shorts and lycra were fine, but a bit chilly, so thin wetsuit or neoprene was excellent.

Lucky if I could just ride all day...but it is lots of work, although interesting...

It depends on where the wind blows. Also locations can change, looks like we won't go to Fort Walton, but directly to Corpus Christie, since the forecast looks excellent.

The evening before we will post info on which beach we will be!

I hope to meet many guys out there for a chat! :thumb:

Hi Toby, and the nobile crew.
Well looks like you got your hands on that 555 before me after all. Any comments about the kites, and differences between the 555 and the NHP.
Can't wait to test the 555 when it arrives on the 23rd.
Enjoy the ride
Nico
