He makes Chuck Norris look like a newborn kitten. I saw him on the nightly news first since he's had the Cops and the Water Rescue team called on him dozens of times. It's not illegal what he's doing and they've learned to respond properly now. Kinda like the early days of kiteboarding at Montrose when there were calls of "a guy with a parachute in the water" LOL.
BTW, I found a really good technique when your hands start getting numb. I set my stopper ball, throw both my hands to the side and shake them violently. New blood is forced to the extremities. Just one tack of about a minute was enough for 15-20 minutes of riding. Since my core was still warm I could have gone on forever in those conditions. Impressive considering the air was 35* and water, well, we all know that's cold as shit. Now what to do about my feet. I woke up with some green smelly stuff on them, hmm, maybe another session to wash that away
