I guess this is more of a recap then a status update.

I really didnt think about riding today with the dark cloudly skys this morning and aforecast calling for storms and clouds. Even with the wind meter saying 22 South this morning the wind on the shore was a WSW-SW 3-10. A few guys put up 14 meter kites and struggled out to the wind line around 10. Well the clouds cleared around 10:30 and the wind was good by 11. I rigged a 10 and was set all day. In the distance a heavy line of clouds was always in sight but never moved in to kill the sun. By 4:30 the storms came.

Most guys out this season with most on 10-12 meter kites. Wind was lighter and gusty near the show but nothing that bad.

Third sunday in a row
I'd rather be Rollerblading
