Congrats again to Canadian Guy Lebrun for taking first place in the Hardwater Kiting ranking but also for breaking the 70 mph snow kite barrier!

Agreed. Denotes a difference of environmental conditions. Guy has the type of conditions found in March. Generally the best time of the year for speed. Whereas many of the perennial fast riders here and overseas, are experiencing more October like conditions. :roll:

We've had some cold and more areas are opening up. Speeds will get closer at the top. :D
