|Given me five at the middle channel slick|
|Craig and I Ripping up the middle channel slick|
No parking tickets issued and I had a fantastic nonstop 4 hour kite session.
The foul weather looking start to the day keep the boaters from showing up - until the skies cleared and the summer sun warmed the atmosphere up. That's when the Boaters appeared and the wind cranked up a notch or two.
Craig, Millard, Larry, Jimbo, Pablo, Jerry and myself enjoyed the elements. The early guys got the best of it.
Kiting the slicks on 2 upwind trips and at times comfortably overpower and using that power to boost easily.
The late guys rigged 9s due to the heavy winds when they arrived. Craig started on the 12 and rigged down to 9.
