Boracay Day 1:

Wind: around 16 knots
Location: Boracay Bulabog
Kite: Dyno 18
Lines: 25m
Board: Flyradical 128x38

Back to filming! Getting used to the conditions and light with the new camera.
Wind not that strong, but good to get more tricks on tape!
Snapped my chicken loop after 3.5 hours so stopped filming for the day.

We started later today, around 10 am, since then the light is the best. The wind was weaker than the day before, and then dropped to very light...at least a few tricks have been filmed, including a new trick, the Board Throw 360 Transition.
