Swiss-heads:
y'day was an ok sesh at CB on my 10. Thats all I sail now.
New 2 kite quiver: 10m Halo for winter and 21m Reactor (still in the bag one month later) for summer.

Today was frigging gusty at BH in ankle deep water(off to the right!) - too gusty for the Halo even. Unsafe.

I was out and handling it but a beginner followed and I made him abort then so did I. Discretion.

The wind was, PERFECT!!! I was on the 16m crossbow
it was gusting up to 25knots and I still had my kite sheeted out,
the power and control was unbelievable, that kite still amazes, I wonder if I can ride that gusting 30knots
that 16m crossbow is diffidently looking like a one kite
quiver.
The only thing that killed my spirit is the water temperature, it was
Freeeeezing, my muscles was all tight and teeth was chattering I
To get out of it, despite the perfect wind, it wasnít fun battling the cold
It was sweet and sour cause I called in sick for work and only kite for a few hours .
So I tested the C Bow in 20knots, now 25knots next gusting 30knots
