Re: The best weather forecast site?

I use WindAlert... I think they may only be stateside though. One of our local riders is a meteorologist for them. They have 4 local wind stations here in Chucktown, for real time conditions and forecasts. They have others up and down the east coast.

Re: Lessons. Lisah's post got me thinking. How many took'm

I took lessons with my 15 yr old son 5 years ago. The lessons got me the basics of understanding the wind window etc.. and safety.
