Default Tangled @ cypress

Was riding at cypress Sat eve. and a guy rode pretty far out(yellow warroo) Got his kite tangled in a crab trap, had to leave it and swim back 300+yrds. Does anyone know if he ever got his kite back?

Luckily there was a windsurfer there who let me borrow his rig to ride out and get the guy's kite. It was wrapped pretty good. After deflating the kite, I tried to windsurf back in dragging the kite but that was pretty damn hard. Luckily made it to the shallows and walked the rest of the way. The guy's kite looked fine but since their were barnacles and crap on the buoy I told him to check the lines real good.

Thanks again to the kind windsurfer b/c the whole thing took over an hour and killed his sailing time - he was really cool about it.

Yesterday was a blast at Cypress. I just bought a new board, Cab Imperial 128x37 w/ Liquid Force Luxury straps, and it was a delight in the chop. Can't wait for the next session
