Fooled by the Wind…

… could have been ‘kiteboarders’ slogan for today.

One can not predict nature. That’s a fact, everybody knows.  And yet, one or two kiteborders were pissed off by that constant ups and downs and even coursed the crazy  sideshore wind from north of these days.

Kite Bulabog

Today I started my personal kite season at Bulabog. Since there was a lot of rain reacently and it was cloudy too, the water was not so nice. But the wind was quite good.

The wind picked up sometimes to 25 knots! I used the Core Free 9m² and was quite comfortable with it.

Bulabog Beach

TODAY, FRIDAY, 24 NOVEMBER 2017

Since the northeast monsoon (Amihan) has begun, so has the season for kiteboarding at Bulabog Beach. Bulabog Beach is on the opposite side of White Beach. Kiteborders’ favorite weather channels, Windguru & Co, made promising forcasts for today. An average of 17 knots was  pronounced all day long. However, a mediocre breeze of 12 knots was more in accordance to the facts.

In addition to that, Bulabog Beach revealed itself!

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!
