Wind can vary from very light to very strong. It will often be windiest in the early morning and then again in the late afternoon during the primary season. A 12m kite will be good for most riders. Days that average in the low 20mph range are frequent all summer long. Typically there will be periods of very high temperatures and low winds, followed by several days of cooling and high winds. The first day of the cool-down is frequently the optimal set-up for high winds which average in the high 20 to low 30mph for several hours each day. The wind is typically sideonshore with a predominant SW direction. From gusty (in the winter during clearing winds) to steady in the summer. SW is best direction, but also works on West and South. North wind is not good.
