RED FLAGS

Friday, Oct. 20, 2017

Red flags today. That means, for those who are not experienced enough, swimming is dangerous. Strong winds create big waves and rip-tides.DSC_3368 At 2:45 pm no kits on the water yet.

BIG WINDS IN ADVANCED SEASON

Unexpected strong winds blew yesterday (~ 25 knots) and today (~ 25 – 19 knots). Yesterday “sunny side down” today “sunny side up!” It’s still cool for this time of the year. Air 26°, water not over 22°C. With 9m² I was occasionally overpowered. My friend was using 5m² having much fun. Average 10 kites in the water. Tide at 11 am at a comfortable 1.1m rising to 1.5 til 3 pm. Incredible white, flat wave bases inside the reef.

Last Rear Up of the Wind

It’s late in the season for kiteboarding at Bulabog-Beach. But yesterday and today wind-catchers are happy. Windspeeds up to 23 knots (the peak today 2:30 pm for 30 minutes) was possible. Today in the morning was less wind than in the afternoon. Usually it is different.

According to windfinder it should be 23 knots. It shows, that Windguru and Co. is not really reliable.

But as a low pressure will close in to the Philippines, the situation will change within the next few hours. The skys will turn cloudy and the wind will pick up.
