Let’s call it a Season

Sunday the 17th of April

The days of ‘Amihan’ are numbered. Still, there are some winds around. Usually til 8 am the wind seams to be the strongest. At midday wind speeds around 12 knots require big kites, big boards and/or low weight!

Today we had sideshore winds between 15 and 11 knots from east. Not very nice. Riding upwind hardly possible. Everybody was staying in the same lane, more or less. So, lets call it a day and lets call it a season as well!
