Thursday morning

Rainy and cooler but all models agree it’s the best chance for wind in weeks.
I’m heading up around 8a
Vans anyone

Re: Thursday morning

There are a couple of desperate kiters that are likely to join early AM.

Re: Thursday morning

What am I missing? I keep seeing rain and 5 mph? Some other model? GFS, Iwindsurf, NAM, NOAA, Euro,,,,? Or is it just desperation? I'm up for going too so please clue me in.

Desperation and hopes of getting up in the gust.

I second that assessment! Maybe even without the emoji? 🤔

Cool, enjoy! I enjoyed some of the same over the neighborhood lake this morning, at the end my swim. A personal record day for me at 2.5k swim; so not a bad start to the day even without foiling.

Re: Thursday morning

Yes, it was nice. Kite or sail, didn't matter as long as you were there. (Foils helped. A lot.)

Re: Thursday morning

BTW - this spot (Lake Sidney Lanier Near Buford) on Iwindsurf is worth checking for easterlies. (Not so much for west). As I pointed out above, I was pretty skeptical about going yesterday. When I got up G-Ville was saying 6 or 7, but this spot said 15 which was enough to get me going. (Unfortunately not enough to get there at reasonable time, but that's another story.) Today reporting 17, but it is raining and apparently pretty hard. So if in doubt about an easterly, this spot is worth checking.
