Nice Frank. Way to stay on the accelerated progression curve. Your new board looks fun. Glad you could get the Hatteras local to sail Clinton Lake with you. :wink:

Don't worry, I'll try to keep Ben away. 8)

Frank- hey this is scottg. I know clinton rather well from my windsurfing days down there and always thought on the other side of the bridge looked really great but no launch. Seems a raft could be anchored out in the lake just kite line lengths from shore to make that happen?? Whats your thoughts on that? Also seems a jet ski in the picture for you guys would help for safety but of course thats a hassle itself? Keep us all posted on your launch progress because clinton is situated in a warm wind zone for sure.

now thats pretty darn cool. be pretty sick if you could find a narrow spot where you could have one on each shore. cruise across with the opposite line attached to your harness then switch off to go back the other way. throw a ramp in the mix and you gots it all good.

Frank, I like that dailer. I have been looking at that one since last year. Hope to get one this summer to ride along with my worn out celritas. It your riding it in the lake take those straps off. Its super easy to ride with out them and 10 ties easier to jibe on.
I'd rather be Rollerblading
