Oh man - what a day!!


Hey Guys,

It was a blast kiting with everyone there at the Big Sandy today.

Winds where great at the beginning and boy did I get bashed around. Tried my first Back loop and had some really entertaining falls - Ken I can't believe you didn't see that one when I landed on my back.

Loved trying the Best Warroo today - so so so so light in the bar as apposed to the heavy bar I have on my monkey - it's like going from Sports car to a Motor bike. Totally different feel but both fun to ride.

Shane if you have not figured it out - you left your harness there today - I took it home. call me (613)887-1815

Till next time,

Michael

Thanks for the help during my GONG SHOW today - Sept 3


Ok Gang,

I'd like to thank a few people today for there help during my personal GONG SHOw.

I'm not going to go into many details but it is suffice to say my kite is OK so no need to worry. Also, my board has been recovered and is only suffering from minor boredom.

My ground support staff (Rob / Jarret / Age) has done a wonderful job today and should be nominated for the:

"Kiteboarding Kingston Cool Guys Award for Heroism and for Guy Who Should Be in the Lab Doing Research Rather then Being Out and Having a Good Time Kiting":

So thank you Rob / Jarret / Age for the
ground support:

Your searching skills are welcome any time and also your mad taxi skills - KYC to beach to house was a wonderful touch!!

Anyhow, thanks a bunch and see you guys on the next windy day!!!

Michael

Oh the board looks like crap with the damage but moves really well. Can't complain as I like the size and its ability to carve and deal with my mistakes. Oh and it's buoyant nature is a real plus.

I know I was going to come back to get that handle added but I don't think I like those things on there. I may just come buy to coat the edge with some epoxy when the winter makes water kiting unmanageable.

Take care,

M
