OUCH -- $799 !!

Use my stuff, see if Ya like the sport first ; & you
know Darin , if there's an inexpensive way to make
something , (He "Will" find it) !!

I'd get Him to teach Ya, or Romona ; that woman is Quite Good !!

I haven't even used it yet, the wind has been shit, flew the kite, or tried, looks like one of the bridle lines on the starboard side is some how wrapped one time around another bridle line... it just spins , and I spend my time un doing the tangles....

off to Mexico the morning of the21st. , I'll bring it back to you the 20 Th, 6 am flight, and will come
to town the day before, still be in Mexico the 1 st.

thanks man, you were cool to lend it...
