Think the wind starts picking up when the rain is passing by:

Front side of a medium size T-storm with lots of lightning coming in 1 hour. The real problem is the second storm coming behind that.

Kudos to the boyz at Keeegs for making the best of a lighter wind day.


Great to see the smiles and the stoke on Ivo's B'day. 12's and 14's and a lot of walking, but it reminded me of why I got into kiting in the first place. Hangin' with your buddies at the beach, and having a good time....that's really what it's all about.

Here's to you Mr. Soul..... 8) there will be more wind another day, but you sure had a little on your 30th!!!!!
