I watched Matt ride his Flysurfer Peak in moderate rain and it seemed to do well....after I had to put away my wet foil kite-as it could hardly fly.

Nice to see a bunch of you made it out yesterday. I had eyed the day as a good one. Unfortunately I driving the car for 8hrs well watching the trees sway in the wind. Hope to make it out again soon.

Wondering if anyone in the Nahant crew wants to be part of a chat/text group to communicate gatherings and when its going off. I really miss the old email distribution list and I suppose that lack of hearing that people are getting ready for a weekend session or that one is going off in a few hours has stunted my interest in making the trek to Nahant for the past year or two. If there is interest, I could collect cell phone and contact info here (u2u) and then send out a group chat (standard data and message rates apply) and then those in the group chat would always know when other riders are out or getting ready to go. Could even post pics or vids. I'm not on FB and the email list is dead so just throwing the concept out to see if anyone is interested.

Some requests for a group email vs. text line. I'm OK either way and have no preference. Group emails work well for me but if you are on the recipient end you'll need to either keep the email to reply to or create your own distribution list once the email goes out. Whatever the majority decides - just let me know and I'll do what I can to set it up. I have most of the emails from the crew with the exception of those who have been added in the past two years.

KONE @ Nahant beach with a packed beach and parking lot.....some tried to buggy. I scudded and jumped a bit in the 'caution' taped off 120' square buggy demo area :o With a big 10m and 13m borrowed FB kite in low, but steady ~7-8mph wind.. (give or take 1 mph)

That 13m (nor 10m) doesn't need much to pull (or lift) you!(thanks Dan And Genci)

Dan somehow-the pilot that he is- took guest riders on tandem thru the crowd of Bikinis, boogie boards and beach blanket bodies...

Nice day anyway...

Yep. Today was an awesome day. Plenty of wind and from a good direction at getting some speed going one way. Even got to set a new PB. There were many people on water but no one else on land until my last hour when Skimtwashington came and it made for a very nice hour of riding side by side.

Man I wish I could make it out this Sunday. If the rain holds off it could be a pretty sweet day. Tide out with sunrise, tide back in with sunset forecast mid teens with gusts to mid 20s onshore!
Wish I could go.

Yep it looks awesome. They don't show any rain until latter in the afternoon, so a morning session will probably be awesome.

Wind on vacation last 48 hours

Visted Lake Q to test ice, skate. No wind. Heartbreaking:(:(:(


May have to continue to breach the beach until ice and wind sets up...then I'll see you on the lake!:smilegrin:
