Wind, Waters and Waves – Bimini – August 2011

Welcome back to the Wind, Water and Wave report from Bimini Kiteboarding in Bimini!

The last four weeks we’ve seen a lot of high temperatures and not much wind, so here in Bimini we have been spending our time Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) and free diving / spearfishing.

Entering the months of August and September, we are well into the 2011 hurricane season and officially at the end of our kiteboarding season. Our kiteboarding season will restart in early October when the cold fronts start pushing down from the North Atlantic.

In August and September, we will see lots of very still and hot days, which gives us perfect weather conditions for free diving, as the sea visibility will be incredible most days. One thing to be aware of is the afternoon storms that develop off the coast of Bimini most afternoons. If you are out on the water, make sure you keep an eye on the weather as you don’t want to be caught out far from shore if a storm quickly develops. Most of all for paddle boarders and kayaks, as the wind associated with these fast developing storm fronts can increase in no time at all.

If you are unsure on the best locations to get out paddleboarding or kayaking, then give Bimini Kiteboarding a call at (242) 473-4545.
