Bloah's launch looks pretty nasty. The question is, though, what is above the eroded edge? if it is nasty there too, I think he wins. If its a nice field with lots of room, then I think Starsky can give him a good run for his money. I know the launch Starsky is describing, and it's pretty nasty, with lots of obstacles on shore too. Not as much broken concrete and rebar, but no shortage of steep rocky stuff with only a few spots to come ashore.

This launch at palisades dam is pretty sketchy! Torn a few holes in my wetsuit getting pulled down the hill. We can self launch and land here. We have an anchor on the big log and a small grassy spot that fits a kite resting on its wingtip. The wind here is as steady as it gets and thats the only reason we can pull it off. kite wyoming!
