Turned out to be a pretty good day and decent temperatures, low 50s. Although I consider any day out with a kite a good day to me. Wish I could of stuck around longer.
Blitz - You know that venom. I love that kite and finally look like I might know what I am doing launching and landing. I wish I had the 16 with me. I would of liked to see if I could of gotten it going.

It was an awesome day, still aching from yesterday. 15 miles all in and broke my speed record. 30.3 mph, not enough nerve to go faster even though the 8m century could have gone up to get a few more mph's out of it.

Bri and all, glad to see you getting out. Do we want to go back to using the email list to let others know when sessions are occurring or are you getting out all the time now? I don't mind riding alone but would put more effort into heading back there to ride with others if I knew they were out. What's the parking lot situation currently - open only at the rotary or is access to the parking lot wide open from the Tides on down?

B-roc, if there is an email list that goes out i think that woukd be a good thing. I always like it better when I find someone else at the beach.
The whole parking lot has been open all winter from tides restaurant to the rotary.

I use either Coyote rollerblades on beach or regular rollerblades in the parking lot along beach..up to a mile long.

On that day I used regular rollerblades in the lot with a 3.5m NPW on 20-25 ft lines.... winds averaging in mid teens.

I have not sat in one of my own buggies in a Long while. ........I like using my legs and sometimes feels alot like ski/slalom action!


Bri, the old group e-mail is dead ( i tried it) so need a new set up dedicated site or you will have to start posting in 'meet ups' here on PKF...

My camera battery died before I got warmed up... so all I got. I'm no Conrad! If only he would visit Nahant to make a great film to capture the feel of here.

Well, I guess that explains why it's been dead for so long. Does anyone here remember who set up / owned that service? The address I had is Nepowerkites@lists.funonastick.com

All's I ever did was send an email to that address and it told everyone that a session was on.

Email list would be nice. it is always nice to be out with other people(and have a nudge to get out).

I'll do a little research and see how we could set something up if we can't resurrect what you all had been using.

GravityGuy: That is great to see her in the air. I do miss that kite. I set my PB with that kite almost two years ago. Still have not broken it. The ground work is the most important. Once in the air she will take care of you.

GLX or Ski - I am looking to get out tomorrow before a couple of grueling weeks at work. I am thinking Nahant probably will be less than ideal with wind from the NE. Maybe something at low tide? Any other recommendations for NE wind that could be a better option.

Nahant your best bet.

...mid bath house to restaurant curve is closest to NE or more on-shore direction of shoreline...then the rest is mostly full East and 45 degrees off...so just tack and then downwinder... and repeat!
Beach suffered last week from storms(got pebble exposed from sand loss, and..... also had red tide wash up also:(.


....also the parking lot had lots of thick sand wash up down at wide end- leaving a mess where I ride inlines w/ kites... hindering riding untill removed forcefully or naturally. Got to examine closer.

A lot can change in a week, or a day even.

Weather looks cold and raw..wet early...? single skin kind of weather:smug:..

Not sure on any other places. Went out today and it was a waste of time very low wind 3-6 mph and from the n, nw. Only was able to run for about 2.5 miles, with a barely flying 8m fb, from the water to the dunnes until the wind died out completly. As always, when everything was packed up and loaded in the car, the wind picked up a little.
Will be heading out there again tomorrow if there is more wind even if the direction is n, nw again.

Tide and hard pack were very good. All the mess from the storms had been erased. Parking lot is still closed so did not get to see in what condition it is.
