Just jumped to 11-16 at PAG.

PAG or Big Beach will be the place to be.... or North, like Indian Rocks.

Backside will work, but it'll be 3 mph less is my guess. I am going to the gulf to jump the waves. Flat water in light wind is sort of boring!

Tom, Colin, Jordan, Bruce, Chris, Randy, Bayflite, myself, Donna, (forget some like always) got to ride Blue Flag. Most were totally litt on 15m Bows or 18m C kites. It was pretty sweet :P
It was from 14 to 18 is my guess.


Donna got to ride and had a GREAT time. She was on the 14m TD and Super Phatty. She got to ride the 15m Ion today right after the 14m TD.

She simply loved the Ion (no surprise) and wants one now. We think it was blowing about 15 knots when she was on the Ion. She said it was a piece of cake to ride. The 14m TD was definitely more low end "grunty" and she was at its upper limits in 15 knots. She liked the Ion better. Said it was less grunty, smoother turning, etc. I feel the same way. She is SO light, that I am convinced little nuances become exaggerated to her. So, when she comes back and says "piece of cake to hold down", I know its true.

What was interesting was watching her ride it (with ease at about 60% depower) and then watching Chris Moore go out immediately after litt and jumping. (I assume he powered up the kite a bit)
Kite seems to have a huge range. I got to ride it in 20+ and was amazed how easy it was to ride. I am very impressed by the Ion (if its not obvious )

Definitely loved the ION. When I hit the water I thought it was less windy, everyone said no it wasn't, it just felt like it cause it was so effortless to ride. That and the Super Phatty are the shnizzitt as Ebone would say.

Awesome day, thanks for letting me demo the ION Chris. Sweet kite! Can't wait to get one! :shock: hint hint sweetie :wink:

a number of us out at backside... low tide... most all got in some AMAZING riding out past the first channel. i was riding a 15m C and was fully powered most of the later afternoon.. most everyone was on 15m kites.. Dan was on the 12m waroo and very powered..

around 6pm or so the super shallows in the middle of the channel started to fill in and we all got in some long rides on GLASS. seriously.. super super flat water about 12 in deep or less and LITT ... ive never kited in those conditions and I kept thinking over and over that it was just too damn perfect of a day.

Everyone looked to be having a blast.. kiting in June in Florida.. gotta love it!

have a safe drive tomorrow Scott..

Definitely a great day. I am guessing that at least 20 locals rode. Pretty unreal for a weekday/summer day.

Yeah, super flat water is cool. Just dont' try anything too tricky or you'll eat mud :shock: .

Great last day before my "adventure".
