IF you are a kitesurfer you probably enjoyed the weekend, with strong winds around the region.

On Saturday the winds got up around 39km/h in Gladstone from the east to south-east, with one gust hitting 59km/h.

The Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting more wind on Monday, with winds of about 36km/h.

If you are not a kitesurfer, or if you are a kitesurfer stuck in an office, the good news is the winds will ease off on Tuesday  and over the next few days.

A few drops of rain fell on the region, but not enough to register on the rain gauge.

The dry weather meant school children were able to make the most of their holidays in the great outdoors.
