How's the fall Bash going? I won't make it down for the Thursday night beer tasting, but I hope you all toast to some good times, good kiting and good friends!

Mood: Serious Buggy withdraws!

Plenty of riding has been happening all week with a great mix of onshore and off shore winds. Today is forecast, and proving to be 30+mph with gust to 45 mph from the NW making it a tricky day for sure. Small kites and a decent amount of skill will be required.

Overall it's been a great week for anyone that's here. Today and tomorrow will be highest winds to be had

Here's my morning yesterday. First time I've had my days worth of buggying before both lunch and high tide.

Today is too much wind for me, but tomorrow is looking great.




Go ahead... tell me to "go fly a kite!" Please!

Anyone shooting video?

Today sounds a bit risky:o, but I hope those out riding stayed safe. High winds most everywhere on upper Northeast coast.

Trees or parts of them have broken and fallen all around Boston area and MA coast from high wind gusts 65 to as high as 75+ mph.

Lots of property damage scattered throughout.



I see that 45 mph Max speed,Howard. Very respectable. Good job Howard.:thumbup:

It is no doubt that yesterday was a little crazy. Very few buggied, it was extremely gusty. Those who did, had safe rides but it wasn't fun. One second no wind next second 45+ mph gust.

Today seems to be a much better day with winds in the 18-20mph range but not onshore.

Sounds like some interesting weather. I won't be kiting this bash, but I am hoping to come down to the beach tomorrow to say hello to everyone. I miss my WBB friends.
