Even though the forecast looked sketchy Keith convinced me to head out to the Island. And I'm glad I did. Thank You Keith...
Rigged the 11M and rode like there was no tomorrow. On the water having a blast from 1:00 - 5:15, with a half hour break for some fluids. Covered 41.5 miles and every mile was well spent. Chop hopping, toe siding, ollie ups and carve city.
Last run was up to the channel slick until some duck hunters announce their location by firing a few shots over my head. Cut that short and carved my way back downwind.
7 hardcore kiters appeared by days end. Keith, Craig, Mark, Trish, Scott, Tom and 1 more.
