10m conditions tonight at Jetty. Of course those of us out there were all on our 14+ m kites formerly known as our Jetty Kites. Holy $%&#!
I don’t know what’s gotten into Jetty this season but I think it has been the best summer kiting since I started kiting in 2008.

Hi All,
I'm new to Seattle and was wondering if the Jetty is ridable today, looking at TJs forecast it doesn't look to promising?
Into the wakestyle thing, but happy to cruise on a skim if its too light.

Took the boat out of the water last night. Bummer! Managed to squeak in a late solo session tho. Riding alone at jetty is a strange surreal experience. Super fun! Hope to get more jetty action, but looking forward to fall! 8-)

I have, but there is no reason to go there if you can kite elsewhere. I dont know how often it is good when other local Southerly launches are good. If I needed flat shallow and safe, I would go to locust. DB will be shallow mid day tomorrow and fairly safe too if you are comfortable with the wind conditions.

Keep in mind there are a lot of boats currently mored in Useless bay. Might be like an obstacle coarse there tomorrow. I still haven't decided where I'm going yet.

Be smart. Don't kite alone. Don't kite in conditions beyond your ability. Assess the whole situation.

Forecast calls for a shift to SSW. I'd do local instead of DB.
