Daylight saving time is over in Florida :(

Postby jats2k9 » Fri Nov 01, 2013 4:46 am

Daylight saving time ends this weekend.
I was having great sessions after work, but now is not going to happen. So, what do you guys do?? I was thinking of going early in the morning before work since now we are going to have earlier sunrise. Please mates, share your experiences and tips because being a weekend warrior it's just not enough for me. Thanks.

Make arrangements to get off one hour earlier from work if forecast is for 20 knots ++

Yes Monday at work will be rough....if you miss out....since the forecast shows...20-25 knots NE

Talk to your boss today about cutting out earlier

Or as you can see you could go early before work....there is wind early next week in the AM :wink:

After work Monday....central Florida sunset 5:35pm....so enough light to kitesurf til 6:05pm

Those in Canada..like Toronto area....their sunset at 5:04pm....Montreal area....sunset 4:37pm

We need to be thankful and count our blessings

Yep, but the problem is that it takes me 40-45 min to get to the beach from work, so I arrive at 5:45 pm at the beach and won't have enough time with the time change. I guess I'm trying going early morning.

Your sunrise is 6:32 am this Monday...what time do you have to be at work ?

Do you have a least 2 bar/ lines that you could have already attached to a 12m2 and a 8m2 kite

That really helps when time is a factor......prepare your kites this weekend...and be ready to go

That would cover you for winds of 15 to 30 knots

I got to be at work at 8 am till 5 pm. I thought about having the lines ready and maybe the struts inflated the night before.
Is anyone out there in the Miami area??

Yeah I had the same issue when I worked 8-5, I live literally on the beach but driving home from Fort Lauderdale takes an hour plus at that time.

I ended up making an arrangement where I would work 7-2 (no break) and additional hours from home when it was required. I'm lucky to have a nice boss that lets me do that, otherwise you get almost no time to kite since our windy season is during the winter/early spring.
