Hard day on hard water.

Postby SaulOhio » Mon Jan 20, 2014 6:56 pm

Didn't have much of that soft fluffy white stuff here. Had a good weekend.






That last one was especially fun. Just as I was about to land my kite to end the day, the wind picked up to something over 40. I couldn't handle it, and had to unhook and let go of the bar. Not fun walking back dragging an 8M kite behind me on black ice with gale force winds trying to blow me away.

Nice. Saul if you post on "Metro Beach Kiteboarding Team" (on facebook) you might be able to car pool next time and save some gasoline.

Thanks for the offer, but Presque Isle is in the opposite direction from Michigan, and I always being so much gear there wouldn't be room for anyone else.
