Big Thanks to all Saturday Kiters


Hey guys,
I just wanted to extend a tremendous thank you to Mike, Michael, Brent, and everybody else who lent a helping hand getting me and my kite off the lake and back home on Saturday after a very mistimed jump. In case you were wondering, I did go down to KGH that afternoon and I actually managed to break my ankle, so I doubt you'll be seeing me snowkiting in my cast for the rest of the season. Although 6-8 weeks recovery time should have me fit as a fiddle when the ice disperses and water (which will provide a much softer landing) returns.

Again thanks for your help everyone. It's really awesome that there is such a great kite-camaraderie here. Tear it up out there.

Happy kiting,
Andrew B.

Hey Andrew,

A break sucks, but hey, probably preferable to a lot of ligament damage! Lookin for the silver lining! When the dog pissed on your bag, It was quite apparently not your day!! Hope it heals well and you get it back quick.

That sucks man. Brent is right though, a break is often way preferable to a sprain, tear, etc.

Case in point, I nailed my shoulder last Sunday when I bailed badly (Brent had a front row seat for that one too). This is an old injury (rotator cuff) that I first injured two years ago playing hockey. This past summer/fall was the first time since I hurt it that it felt anywhere close to normal. Now back at square one.

On top of that, I sliced one of my back leader lines with the edge of my ski.

Bummer...

Anyway, hopefully you'll get back up and out relatively soon.

Cheers
Craig
