Day 36:

Wind: 16-22 knots
Time: 4.5 hours
Location: Barra do Cauipe
Kite: Dyno 18
Lines: 25m
Board: Flyradical 128x38
Tricks to do: 16

Long session today! 4.5 hours. The day started with clouds and good wind...then it dropped. A bit later the sun came and the wind got stronger. I had a great session and we filmed several tricks, including quiet some new ones, like the Barefoot Slide Throw and the Barefoot Slide 360.
We are close to finishing filming the tricks...1-2 days for the to do list, and 1-2 days for re-filming footage from last year which look more stylish now and sometimes the shots were not sharp enough.

Day 37:

Wind: 18-24 knots
Time: 3 hours
Location: Barra do Cauipe
Kite: Dyno 18
Lines: 25m
Board: Flyradical 128x38
Tricks to do: 16

Today we had good conditions and re-filmed many tricks from last year. We are currently going thru the files and saw that quiet some tricks needed to be done again, since we want to deliver a top product and don't want to save on quality because time is running. It all costs soooo much, so it doesn't matter anymore. I just hope I will get the invested money back...otherwise there is a house for sale in Cumbuco soon...
