I'm in for Keegs on Saturday. Gotta' try out the new board and see if my new booties keep my feet from going numb..... :D

Also, I'm a newbie so I get tired fast. What to do when resting? How 'bout shoot video of all you folks boosting? I'll gear up, swim out and float centerstage.

Kite by me and I'll shoot video & post it later. 8)

The wind hates me....

I got called out to work. I'm in Palm Springs...waiting for an airplane to arrive so I can fly it back to Chicago. The plane just diverted to LA because of HIGH WINDS and windshear here in Palm Springs.

Now I'm delayed 2 hours.

The wind HATES ME!
