Default "Seabreeze" today

It started at about 2:30 and was pretty good. I went out to check it because I noticed the SW sensor went to zero and when I checked the baynews9 skycam the trees were moving around good.

Anyway, I just checked the SW sensor. It is saying SSW. I think it is off (lol).
Maybe tomorrow will blow at the beach again, is why I am posting. Keep your eyes open for hints of NW (or SSW spikes on the SW sensor).

It looks like Cypress kicked today as well, did anyone try it out?

Today seemed more like March. The water was warm and all I had on was a shorty and I wasn't even close to cold. I think a pair of shorts would have sufficed. Weird winter.

Talking

Undertow. Roberto just said it was blowing 13m weather out at Treasure Island all afternoon, as well. Hopefully tomorrow will be a repeat.

I wanted to call and give someone on the forum a heads up to post, but I left my phone at home. Hoping for tomorrow again. Really seemed odd today to be riding in a shorty.
I guess it's spring already (?)

Default Question on N N W

If it is blowing N N W with a possibility of shifting to N.........is Treasure Island a good spot? Looks like it might blow again tomorrow afternoon.

Default Sarasota Crew Reporting In

rode with Dr Mike at Siesta Key from 3-5PM

was slightly on shore (so it had to be NW)

was on a 20 but overpowered - Dr. Mike was on his new 13 Best and pullin off jumps - man what an awesome kite!

wind started going off shore (N) and started to get nasty/gusty

both of us ended up flying downwind cuz of the notorious Siesta Key current

still better than nothin

Tony
T.I. is notorious for coaxing kiters to ride on a NW.
Not the best call IMO.
When (notice how i said "when" because it always does)the wind shifts NNW or even worse N things can get ugly quick.
I.R.B. is a great place for that direction and senario.
That's my expierience in the past.
This year...all bets may be off...it's just been freakin wierd.
Damn cowz.

Bayflite -

Thanks - I appreciate it. I am assuming IRB is Indian Rocks Beach?

Yes, It is Indian Rocks Beach. I would like to add that Sand Key also works even on a N and it is a great place to ride. But you do have to pay.
