I was there 10am-7pm but it wasn't until 12:30 that it really started to amp up. Boosting for 7ish hours and I'm already feeling sore. Worth every second of that drive to/from Aurora. Most kites I counted at any point in the air was about 15 give or take a few. It was nice to meet a bunch of newer guys too. There didn't seem to be any problems with beach goers either.... At least from my (north) side of the pier. It was too crowded on those butter smooth waters but I ducked in a few times anyway.

Great day at Keegs! I launched from within the sketchy breakwalls and came out to play on the north side in the waves.

12m 10m all day. Left after doing a mini lesson till 7:45.

Dialing in on the 10 with the waist harness after a lifetime e in a seat harness.

Roman and R-tem were looking good!

I'm dead.
