Just got in (with better half :hotchic:) from our 3rd day in a row at the beach with heavy pull LW

( similar in many ways to what we experience in July / August during an ocean upwelling)

8 knots only everywhere that we could see / feel or possibly measure...palm trees...sea oats etc....

Factor of 2 for the wind speed....and factor of 4 for the power in our kites

16 knots for 1/1/2 hours in the 3-4 ft waves with that special winter SSE side side-on wind direction

Warm 80F wind over cold 70F water special effect ( similar in many ways to LW videos out there)


2 :beer: :beer: to 4 :beer: :beer: :beer: :beer:

"Heavy light winds"

Pity this wasn't a question. You'd be on the podium once again.
