Re: Lanes, Hookipa, Kanaha 3/18-?????

Season is year round. Had an unusual 3 weeks without steady wind, but even that means you'll get one or two days a week on 8-10m.

Re: BROKITE 2016...the Journey Continues!!!

You won't believe how much lighter and stronger these things are compared to any ol' BS marketed carbon...

Re: Slingshot 2016 Wave SST and 2012 Rally comparison/review

Got a chance to fly the SST this weekend in 8m overhead conditions. Very nice flying kite that was a pleasure to fly. I'm a huge 2011-12 Rally guy that has been waiting for a response from Slingshot for screwing up the Rally post 2012. The SST is a light bar pressure, tight turning, smooth kite. It ...

Re: Who Likes Great Beer Part 3!!!!

Hey guys I got a coupe of questions regarding cooking tools availability. Well, all have access to a fully stocked kitchen, a propane grill, and outlets for crock pots, hot plates, etc. on the serving table. Feel free to bring a dish/side and it'll be a potluck occasion... And of course beer!!!
