Session 1 of the 2019 season: Happy New Year with the first session at the Sanibel plaza

Mid 80s. sunny, south breezes to 25 mph.
The most dangerous launch I ever did. Launching 40 feet upwind from the busy Sanibel causeway.(Sanibel Plaza) with cars and trucks wizzing by at 45-55 mph.
Overall a marginal 13m day. Nice venue with shallow water everywhere and directly onshore breeze. The warm water felt good for a change.
Nice crowd of 12-15 kiters and 3-4 WS with 12-19m kites being used.
Finally about 2:30 the wind lightened up to 17-19m level.

Gear:  13M Z Kite and TT board
TOB:  12:00 - 2:00            

Winds: South breezes, on-shore 10-25mph   
Weather: Sunny, hot mid-80s
Surface: shallow, mainly flat water venue
