Crap! I didn't expect it and made other plans.

What did I miss? :cry:

Was good! :D :D :D
10m/TT, quite lit at times, much boosty!! Much fun!

Great ripping through the shallows as the tide flooded the sandbars, only four then three kites out. Shame session got cut short by a line snap, but happy it didn't happen 3m up :o :shock: !!

Angus why the hell were you on a 17m kite??!! :D

Glad you made it out Chuck!!
I was waiting for the tide to come in but by then the wind had dropped.

Rushed down to 3rd Ave to score almost 1.5hr on 12m+surfboard in NE 18-22. A couple of lulls but at times overpowered. Best wind and sea state was around Centennial. Fun riding with a couple of kiters (including Slappy) and a couple of windsurfers (including Brad).

Nice to end the week with 3 sessions.

I was lazy and thought it was going to be max 14 knots so I didn't bother bringing the 12m in the car. I must say the OR Flite 17m handled the conditions swimmingly!
