We will save you some wind Bro

Todd RT 03-13-2008 09:30 AM

Looks like Sat. is gonna be S 15K. Is EB good on a S wind??

There's a 'Modern Mopar Muscle Car' car show/meet and greet at EB on Sat. I've got a bunch of old friends that are gonna be there. A few are interested in kiting, so I figured it would be fun to ride at EB!

Also a heads up that this car show will probably have over 50 cars on EB. :rolleyes:

My crystal ball says south wind, will be ridable anytime after 3-4pm. We'll get that funnel effect on Dunedin Causeway, maybe even earlier.

<jason 03-13-2008 01:07 PM

SB=sunset beach...?

Is their decent parking there..? (meters?) never been there...:confused:

Is the beach giong to be packed w/people...

inferno 03-13-2008 01:41 PM

considering the forecast, it will probably be packed, no meters, and not a lot of room to launch... some will probably have to drift lauch because there isnt a lot of beach room......

Skyway Scott 03-13-2008 01:47 PM

So....why exactly would I want to go there?
I just told Donna that's where we would prolly go, but now I am wondering why when EB is right down the street.

Danny, give me a reason or come here. I want to practice landing (as opposed to falling out of sky) those megaloops.
I want to ride with you so we can figure it out together, but not so bad as to drive an hour to a cramped parking lot and drift launch. :(

Todd RT 03-13-2008 01:58 PM

Is EB good on a South wind??

Skyway Scott 03-13-2008 01:59 PM

Awesome on South. Probably the best direction for EB.

Todd RT 03-13-2008 02:16 PM

:cool: :cool: :cool:

<jason 03-13-2008 02:17 PM

Doesn't accuweather say SW on saturday...????

BigR 03-13-2008 02:24 PM

actually it will be more like SSW on sat, when it clocks it'll go straight from SSW to NNW but not till evening

toby wilson 03-13-2008 02:26 PM

BS would be good...

<jason 03-13-2008 02:46 PM

Will eb work on ssw...?

Maybe just have to stay upwind...?

BigR 03-13-2008 02:54 PM

Awesome on SouthSouthwest. Probably the best direction for EB


Steve-O 03-13-2008 03:00 PM

I think SSW is the best wind direction we have. Consistent, strong, and warm. Me likey!

<jason 03-13-2008 03:36 PM

Be there or be....uhh..
On a crowded beach drift launching.. :)

bigairal 03-13-2008 05:24 PM

Friday looks good too
its looks like tomorrow might get a southerly in the afternoon....count me in where is the prayer meeting my muslim

Skyway Scott 03-13-2008 07:20 PM

Tomorrow seems very likely :)

I did a little investigation. I think the cars will be down in the parking lot by North Beach area.
If not, then there will be two car shows at the same time in DeSoto. I guess it's definitely possible.
I will try to remember to just ask tomorrow.

Let's hope this times 20 isn't the scene at EB on Saturday.

Unimog Bob 03-13-2008 08:04 PM

Is that woman a giant or are those very small cars? I actually saw an identical orange one in West Plam yesterday...Lotus, gives a whole new meaning to zoom zoom. There will be favorable southerly winds tomorrow Ishna Allah. Salah Malekum my brothers, I will join you at EB after my Duhuhr Salat.

Sam 03-13-2008 08:13 PM

lets hope the wind looks a little better than in that picture too!!!!

BigR 03-14-2008 06:47 AM

They had a car show in Desoto last saturday, about 30 z's in the north beach parking lot = no problem

Skyway Scott 03-14-2008 07:11 AM

Car "shows" seem to be out there all the time.

Chad085 03-14-2008 08:30 AM

that's a HUUUUUUGE bitch!!!!!!!

They'll be at shelter 13. Only thing that concerned me are these pics from last year... Looks like EB to me!

misfit 03-14-2008 09:05 AM

Hi all,
I'm going to be in tampa from out of town on sat and really want 2 kite. Looks like eb is the spot but I have no idea what eb stands for or where it is. Please help me, I need 2 kite!

Skyway Scott 03-14-2008 09:22 AM

East Beach Fort DeSoto Park.

There is a map of it in the car forum post I linked to.
In their forum, they are going to North Beach. You would take a left on Anderson at the primary T in the park (at the big flag) and go all the way to the end.

<jason 03-14-2008 01:47 PM

Is this system going to change things for saturday....?

Man I hope not

Saturdays forecast on wed was off the it just looks ok... Hope this isnt a preview...??

Skyway Scott 03-14-2008 01:59 PM

I knew it wasn't going to blow today. I hate to be negative and to post about it earlier, but it was a no brainer.

Not sure about tomorrow. It should be obvious by 10 am by looking at doppler and stepping outside. If it still feels pretty cold, put a fork in it is my guess.

<jason 03-14-2008 02:09 PM

Here is the thing...
Im quite sure these boobs could do a better job...but we are the only ones affected by their lack of one else why should they even try....

Sorry that was not more positive... :)
Fingers crossed for tomorrow..

Skyway Scott 03-14-2008 02:56 PM

I hear ya'. Actually though, I bet some guys didn't go fishing 'cuz of the forecast. It was actually a great day to go fishing, I bet.

Maybe tomorrow. ;)

Tom Stock 03-14-2008 05:56 PM

Willing to bet if it's cold and windy those guys won't be parking cars there... it'll mess up their hair..

Skyway Scott 03-15-2008 06:51 AM

It looks good outside. Warm, not cold. Clouds are of a different type than yesterday and they are hauling ass.
Plus, I saw some birds and a butterfly :)

I think it's gonna be a good one.

<jason 03-15-2008 07:32 AM

You saw a butterfly...sweet cause I watched a movie with subtitles last night...and we all know what those two put together means...
