I didn't "call it" per se, I saw it ramp on the meter. But, these Easts are notorious for ramping up at sunset, like last night, so I woulda bet some cash on it, if the bet were offered 8)

Glad to hear everyone is in one piece.
I hope I can ride tomorrow late, I was stuck at work from 8 til 8 today.

If it does it tomorrow, I'll be back working on the kiteloops again...


The first one I got so damn close to landing... Hopefully have better luck tomorrow or next time.

Josh,

Good bet. Its a win/win. If it doesn't blow you make money. If it does, you "paid" 5 bucks to ride.

My bet is for a repeat performance of today, heck, maybe better. I will bet you 5 to 1. In other words, I give you 25 bucks if no wind (15+ for at least 3 hours total from 6am to 9pm), you pay me five if it does blow for 3 hours or more.
Whatcha think? (That is a win/win times 5, IMO, but still a sucker bet :? )

Scott... you really gotta stop this betting stuff...

Skyway Scott 04-10-2006 10:20 PM

You're right. I just stopped all forms of betting. Forever.

kevin, what you were doing wernt real kiteloops. i told you that. You MUST get in the air before the kite loops.

right when you grab the side of the bar you have to pop and realease into a railey before the kite starts the loop.

this is the reason downloops are so hard, because it's hard to get in the air before the kite loops. and if your not then it wouldn't be conciterd a real kiteloop.


work on raileys and other pop tricks before attempting any more kiteloops, you can barley railey, so your not ready for kiteloops.

Well, you only did see one of each... The first kiteloop I did pop earlier and was in the air before it looped.


You really need to cool down on this superiority complex you have.
