Session 29 of the 2018 season: Morning and afternoon 7M kite sessions

Highlights: The relentless winds keep on coming. Looking too windy for my 7M I watched as others rigged and flew their 6, 7, and 8 meters. Finally deciding to rig the standard for the week my 7M. Got out for one hour of riding in the morning session and one hour for the afternoon session.
Afternoon session ended early due to this roll cloud rolling in and killing the wind.
