Re: Friday 11/12

Part of the backrool thing is identifying your front hand and only putting pressure on that hand. Pulling on the back hand could loop the kite. So, once you pop off the water, even a little front hand tension only keeps the kite turning slightly down towards the water. How far you pull in your legs ...

Re: Sunday 10/31

I got out after 3 p.m. on the swamp too. Tried out this new kite, the Airwave Koala 8m foil. It was great. Only a two level bridle system so about 33% few lines. The most stable foil I've ever flown.

Re: Saturday 10/30

Everyone, please welcome Sean to the kite community; he did his first rides today at SSYC! Don left early but the wind was enough to ride a 12m with a big board. Everyone else must have been to tired from yesterday because we were the only ones out. The sun was out more than half the time and the ai...

Re: Friday 10/29

I've cooked up a downwinder with BBR, Big Joe, Carp, and myself around 1 p.m. from SSYC to Grant. Anyone else want in?

Back to SSYC for flatwater, but does anyone want to get a downwinder going? The waves might be good!

Re: Oct 24-25

I did a lesson at SSYC so we could have flat water. Then I rode a little. As I was leaving, Dalius showed up to wing and Carpenter showed to kite. Matt is the new kiter is learning and will soon be joining us.

Who's riding this afternoon?

Little Hat (AKA The Swamp, AKA Big Muskego) seems good today. I've got a wedding. If anyone rides it, let me know if it is clear of weeds enough for lessons to resume.

Re: Week of Sept 20

Steve, BBR, Nurse Ryan, and horde of surfers went to Bradford today. It worked. BBR hit a new PR on his Woo, Nurse Ryan winged, Steve rode is Core, and I got some time on the water before a lesson. This is the warmest I can remember the water being this late in the season.
