Session 59 of the 2018 season: EPIC Linwood slicks

Gear: 11 M Pivot to 13M Slingshot kite and TT board
TOB:   2 sessions between 1:00-6:00
Winds:  NE-ENE 15-30 mph 
Weather:   cloudy and some rain, mid 50s 
Surface:  Slick city
Highlights: First session, short and underpowered on the 11M. Second session, a marathon session on the 13M and TT. As soon as I rigged the 13 the wind ramped up which made conditions near perfect for the 13M kite. Straight to the slick where I played for the next 2.5 hours, jumping, boosting, olling, carving did it all with a butter smooth surface. Worked on my reverse toe side with great success. The 13M kite was well powered with the steady, solid wind conditions.
A record distance traveled, logging over 50 miles. A near epic slick day!
Keith, and 4 others that did  the downwinder. 

50 plus miles

Session 58 of the 2018 season:

A solid 11M, TT session with Keith.
Starting out cloudy and mid-60s then sunny and mid-50s.
Winds were NW clocking to NE.
The wind was surprisingly a solid 15-30 mph through out the day.
One ride out to the slick, spent a short period of time there. The wind clocked from NW to NE ruining the slick conditions.  Overall a near epic day.
