Default Sunday (Whatta Day)!

Whatta day. Whatta day. At one point we counted 38 kites in the sky and 14 on the ground.
Pretty much perfect conditions.



(mid twenties, so the sensor says 25 to 30)

No need to tell! This is of course my workday (Real Estate). What happened to my weekday wind???? Oh well, guess I shouldn't complain at least on the weekdays there are only5-10 kites. I'm glad you all had a killer day!

I have a ton of pictures and an hour of video to go through... but in the meantime my mom sent me these. Man what an awesome weekend! I weep for any poor sap who was not at E.B. today!

Too many people for me to be comfortable, I rode the gulf and had a good time.

that there were not many new riders (or at least riders that were having troubles staying upwind) it really did not seem to be that crowded.

the beginners were staying up or down wind of the pack and traffic was flowing smoooooth all day.

amazing day to be a kiter in this area.. simply amazing.

I rode from about 10:30 til 4pm .. came home and watched the Tampa Bay Lightning kick Pittsburgs as$..

pretty much a perfect day minus the fact that I had to be at work by 3am.

oooo.. also have to concur w/ Stevil regarding Bob.. he's got my vote for most improved rider.

I remember in the spring he was really struggling and ended up hanging out on the beach more than riding..

give that guy a waroo or two and now hes a seasoned veteran boosting in both directions.

You guys are too kind. It is only because of the encouragement and advice from great friends I've made any progress. This is an awesome place to be a kiter, and we are all lucky to have such a great community. Sunday was awesome! My best day on the water so far. THe memories and aches and pains will keep me warm and smiling all week while I'm up working in Boston.

Bob

PS Wolfie I've still got your self launch stake and cone in my car, call me if you want to grab it at TIA 727 638-0014
