Wind in Barbados in August?

Hi all, was hoping someone may have been (or lives) in Barbados during August. It appears that the windy season dies around the beginning of July.

OBX April 27th-May 4th...anyone interested?

heading down during those dates! Yay!! Anyone interested in getting a house? Best deals I've seen were for 4 and 5 bedrooms, which will come to less than $200/room.

Let me know if interested!

Core Kite Stopper Ball

Hey all, I have been trying for some time to get my hands on a stopper ball for the Core Sensor bars. Core used to make them years ago and now wont because they consider it a liability. I have tried making my own (unsuccessful). Does anyone have a stopper ball, or the technical know-how to make one?...

Thanks again, but it looks like Wolf lake is 6 hours away from Waukegan, (at least from a google map search..maybe there are 2 wolf lakes). Going to try Kegs! Thanks all.

Re: Flat water spots near Waukegan? Water temp?

Thanks guys for response. I thought I went thoroughly through the "where to kite" section. I didnt really see a flat water description, but was guessing that when it described a spot for beginners, there would be flat water. Thanks for the info (between the piers). I am not used to cold water, so 6/...

Flat water spots near Waukegan? Water temp?

Hi all, not a local, but taking a trip to Waukegan July 7th-10th. Was wondering is anyone would be so kind to point me in any direction where there may be flat water and kiting allowed. Would a 4/3 or 6/5/4 wetsuit work best right now? Anyone feel like joining me:)? I land in Waukegan airport. Todd
