I was on a downwinder when that squall hit, It wasn't funny but brief, It settled down to a more sensible 35 knots afterwards when the sun came out.

No nothing does! When we got there I was actually a bit annoyed that it wasn't calm 9m weather to learn new tricks. How wrong I was..

Is it just me or do amateur vids seem more fun because you can associate with their stoke - even if there only doin 1 or 2 tricks or just the jumping jellybean thing....

as opposed to big brand videos, which you soughta expect to see everything these days anyway..
