Where exactly are you talking about ? What is the place generally like regarding parking, launch area wind conditions ? I know the wind is hard to forecast but is it known for consistent or gusty conditions generally ? Sorry ✌️ :D
Thanks for any forthcoming information.

Kites falling out of sky at Spanish Bank launch - likely lots of south. Jeff came back in and reported about 20 kts outside.

I'll return at noon. Hopefully better wind.

Im going to try Acadia later but wondering whats the lowest tide height you can sail there these days. I remember 2M - 1.3M seemed to be the magic stuff, I haven't sailed there for 2-3 years, and heard that the bank is higher this year? Any input from recent sailings would be great.

Cheers, Rich

Fun session all by myself at Spanish banks from 630 to 830. Very light at the beach and puffy outside 15-25+. Went all the way up to tower beach looking for waves but the best on this tide were just west of dog beach. My new to me 2013 Naish Park 10 I picked up for $400 was perfect. Stoked to get back into kiting a little bit more hopefully now that I have a medium to light wind kite.
