:lol:

Proof that blimp flyers would rather ride the bus than deal with the hassle of pumping up the kite twice in one day.

If he flew a foil, at days end he could just chuck it in the air and rip home with his superior upwind ability.

P.S. Pity the IT manager who has a daily commute to the office. Lamer.

Stoner - LOL!!! Really, what IT manager worth his salt is unable to work remotely? :wink:

I had the same thought about foils - no bag, no pump, just take the kite & board and ride. How the hell does he fit a pump in his briefcase anyway?

Still, he has a damn good excuse to kite every day! I wish my house and job were so close to the water...
