So sorry to hear you didn't break 200 last year :cry: Put me in the bitterly envious category. I just took a 4 day weekend where I drove 12 hours each way to get in one awsome session Saturday, and get skunked on Sunday :baby:

Keep up the good work so that all of us who are geographically challenged can enjoy hearing about someone living the dream. :thumb:

Happy New Year! :rollgrin:

if you have a break or change kite sizes does that make it another session? or is it times to the beach?

I logged 132 sessions this season totaling 312 hours. The numbers indicate I was able to kite every 2.7 days but the reality is there were times when the wind was up and I logged 13 days straight then the truly horrible times when the wind was non existent and I went 2 weeks straight with no wind.

Jan..................7 sns
Feb.................5 sns
Mar.................8 sns
Apr................13 sns
May...............16 sns
Jun................14 sns
Jul.................12 sns
Aug...............10 sns
Sep.................9 sns
Oct................18 sns
Nov..................7 sns
Dec................13 sns

I'm jealous of Toby. His numbers are awesome.
