Ok, I don't want to get you too down on the place. We do totally know how to shred around here.

Here's a sick shot I got the last big wind day.

And don't think life is all doily for me. I also take in the majestic austin wildlife. We have some spectacular birding you know.

Belton is definitely better. Here's a picture of me getting some epic hangtime at belton last week. I'm stoked because this picture represents a crew height record. I'd like to see some florida nice person beat it.

Never has been good for you to run low on your meds
On the proper drugs....you imagine that Austin is a good place for kiting...and recommend it
Medecine dulls the reality pain train...stuck inland hours from coast...riding ponds with sh**ty gusty
As far as younger Coleman ....who is slowly becoming you....i believe you two have blended into one

I like :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Could you photoshop it and add the mast of a foilboard to the bottom of your board
You are at @ 3ft high...it would look as if you are even cooler foilboarding that flat pond
By the way our waves a 4ft high so i am already one foot higher than you just surfing over them
Keep up the good work :wink:
I really like the way you keep it real

Pj I do think birding is pretty cool but the doily thing I am not so convinced.

Can you somehow incorporate doily into your pfd so I can get a sense of it in action?

So to sum this up:

Austin: great place to live but also really sucks. Kiting here is available but is shitty although the crew is cool except the Travis folks. They just sit around and get lap dances from windsurfers while waiting for the wind.

You can mountain bike, see music and find lots of hot girls of you are a kid but technically an adult now.

And if you are looking for a old tranny to kite with then Florida is the place for that.

So, in spite of the fact that you live in a kiter's paradise and get to kite well over 200 days a year, you are still such an angry, bi-polar psycho that you feel the need to spew venom toward people who enjoy kiteboarding enough to do it in less than ideal conditions. I would say that the Texas crowd is actually more dedicated than you because they have to work harder at it.

Jeeze, I cannot imagine how crazy you would be if you didn't get to kite all the time.

Here's a video made by PJ (Splatnik Ganglion) of the local Lake Pflugervile crew.
PJ is the guy with the orange helmet...

Sounds like there is a pretty large crew with even larger drama. Wow.
