Respect to superhumans who were able to ride it today, and enjoy themselves. For me, 40 gusting to 50 proved too much.
Thanks, Ivo, for magically appearing to save my kite, and perhaps my butt too

I bet you were peeing scared in the same time, and if not----> you should have! :lol:



Zion was firing 5m conditions,I get punished couple times on surfboard when top of the wave start closing over me and smack me down like a little sissy..Not many times you have to choose if you can get over the wall of fury in time or not,good times,,Rode with John till dark,Arten,Greg,Ben riders of the day!

I'll admit to managing some fear. The downwinder got better as we proceeded south.
Thanks for coming along, Ben.
