24 hour Wind for Kite Beach Cabarete

Kite beach Wind

Wow, it´s been a good year for kiting Kite Beach, Cabarete. We almost have 24 hour a day wind. This is because the Big Winter Storms which continue to pound North America are passing far North of Kite Beach Cabarete. Generally these Winter Storms would take a more North to South Movement, bringing Kite Beach Cabarete Big Northerly Swells, Rain and Lite Winds. Because the Storms  are moving rapidly West to East, Kite Beach Cabarete is getting wind all day and all night because:

1. The Bermuda High is not being Displaced

2. A Southerly is mixing with the Trades.

 

Because the Storms are so far North of Kite Beach Cabarete, the High Pressure System which brings us our winds ( Bermuda High) is not being displaced. The Southerly (wind before the front) mixes with the Trades to make for nearly 24 hour wind. This is good news for Kiters, but may spell big trouble for Kite Beach in  July and August of 2014. Strong Trade Winds help the sand migrate off kite beach and the North Swell brings Kite Beach Cabarete waves (and new Sand). These North Swells simply are not happening. Instead of having a 50 meter beach this time of year, we have a 20 meter beach. If this cycle continues, there will  be no Kite beach this summer, or a bigger ocean at Kite Beach depending on how you view it. Either way let’s hope the storms slow down a bit and turn to the South!
