It's clearing wind season and IWINDSURF has removed both the Topanga and Leo Sensors and I assume they are not coming back. What's going on? Isn't Malibu kind of a go-to spot for kiting/windsurfing where the sensors would have a lot a value? Some kind of fight with the surfers? Maybe Mike can comment on this.
Last season Ben flew into Southern California and visited several possible hosts in the Leo area There are very few suitable locations along that stretch of coast and most of the possible hosts are not very interested. There is always lots of initial interest but once you get down to signing contracts for a sensor on public property lots of issues have to be negotiated like liability, aesthetics, insurance etc issues arise.
That said, we are waiting for one party to make their final decision a Leo sensor location.
Topanga has been down since Dec. and is in the repair queue.
Right now the sensor crew is focusing on sites where there is winter wind action.
Last week Ben was in the Cancun area installing a bunch of sensors for our Hurricane Network
