Had a decent session at kits. 12m was enough for a couple of hours of fun, choppy water but still a good time. A boat full of aussies showed up to get a closer a look and were kind enough to pass me a beer as I went past. It was awesome drinking a beer, kiteboarding and looking out over downtown Vancouver. Need a rest now after 3 days kiting and 2 snowboarding in the last 5 days.

Ya fun times at the terminal!

Pretty lit on the 14m, good thing I still have the winter girth to help hold it down :o

Cash Boosting, as per usual. Going to have to start putting a tether on that guy or he might just float up, up and away!

Think he said the highest was mid-turdies...35’ plus :o

You didn't miss too much Alton. A decent 12m session, but no real waves.

I got out from 2-4:30 on the 12m + SB. First half was underpowered but then things picked up for a fun little session.

I shot this one in SuperView today, let me know what you think about the wider angle + more fish eye. My wife definitely thinks the other ones shot in Wide are much more watchable.

Funny, I find the SuperView to be easier on the eyes (flatter horizon works better for my cluttered adult mind). Although your last two session logs are kind of apples-to-oranges comparisons (larger 'waves' shot in Wide Angle vs. flatter day shot in SuperView). Comparison footage shot during the same session would make for better 'wave' view comparison. My two cents.
