wind on Kona

Postby madmax7 » Fri Dec 06, 2013 7:02 pm

So I am in Kona and the NWest side has almost no wind

But there is some in The NE, by Upolu point and I brought my 17 m to try out

Is there a beach up on the NE side to launch?

Thanks Max

wind are slow this time of year. Kona winds blowing on shore are few and in between. Trade winds blow off shore at Kona. Need to drive to other side of Island, Hilo.
Next Tuesday and Wednesday trades will be back for a short time.
