Of course, as soon as the 2010 Pismo Beach KiteXpo was done, the wind turned back on. The riders and brands who stayed in town for one more day were rewarded with perfect 10-12m weather that strengthened to 8-10m before the day was done.

Just proof positive that you can’t count on the weather when in comes to kiteboarding events! All you can do is be flexible and get on the water when you can!
