It’s about to get WINDY! Time to kiteboard.

Finally, after what seemed like a very long stint of early summer doldrums, we are going to have a few days of solid wind! Coming off of such a spectacularly windy spring, it has been almost painful to endure the past couple of windless weeks., however, our “suffering” is coming to an end. Get your kiteboarding gear ready, throw in some yoga sessions to loosen yourself up, and open your calendar… ’cause it’s about to get WINDY!!

Tuesday, June 6th

Winds will be coming up from the South/South East, at around 15-knots, on Tuesday morning. By the afternoon hours, winds will shift slightly to South/SouthWest and will pump up to 20-knots. Waters will be choppy and a high chance of showers and thunderstorms is possible. Tuesday night the 20-knot winds will diminish to around 10- to 15-knots with showers and thunderstorms widespread across the Bay Area.

The rain is going to move across the Bay Area throughout the day; it will not be raining in one spot the entire day. So, there will be several opportunities to kite.
