Kind of early to anticipate 7m Keegs conditions Saturday but let me know if anyone want to carpool and Kite noon to dusk.

I am coming in town for a week.
Anybody have a surfboard for me to use on Saturday?
Heads up, it will probably get pretty messed up.

KITING!

Reconsidering departure time to early Saturday since looks like rain and storms in the afternoon. I've got room for one more kiter. I'm on the near Northside. tyedye21@hotmail.com

Windalert shows 22 with 37 gusts at 12 noon at Keeg.

Is this going to be a problem with a 15 mpg differential?

It's going to be a handful, but I personally am of the opinion (watch me be proved horribly wrong :roll: ) that the forecast won't come through as strong as anticipated. It's been a trend this fall so far. I'm not saying that there won't be wind... far from it! BUT it won't be as horrendously gusty as some forecasts are showing. I'm bringing a 12m and a 9m.

10 or so kites in the sky. Some boosting huge. Some mowing the lawn. Some riding the amazingly clean waves. Either way, everyone seemed to tolerate the less than ideal temps for whatever their reason. It only took an hour for me to regain feeling in my toes. :shock:

It was nice seeing all the guys out there. Round two tomorrow if the rain holds off!
