Tomorrow is looking good. Wind SSE about 15 to 20 knots. If forecast is going to hold thinking about Keegs around noon or so. Any takers? I have the day off work. 8). The water temp is about 40° and it may hit 45° that's within the 80° rule for a wet suit.

So far so good @ 15 knots and building, headed out to Keegs should be there by 12-12:30.
Are you still coming out to Keegs?

Lit on 11 and 9 meter kites here today. I rode from 3:30 tp 5 on my 11 and 134 bro wake. Wind was right along shore and clean.

Got two hours in yesterday on my 13 and UG 142 on a classic thermal push around 1 until just after 3. Felt like summer in every way but the temps. Face even got sun burn

I have been kiting for almost ten years now and this is the first time I have ever ridden in February.

5 days out on the water now in 2012!!
I'd rather be Rollerblading
