Well how about that? Quote of the day was: "Came up a little bit."

Hope nobody got hurt or lost any gear, saw some pretty crazy shit happening.

First off...I put up a 12 and was having a fine time until I looked-around and realized that everybody else was off of the water. I remember thinking that maybe there was something that I didn't know. That's when the explosive & lofting gusts hit. I ended-up pointing straight down wind riding toeside with the kite just off of the water as far up in the window as possible. It didn't let-up so I had to ditch in a wind shadowed area on the Oregon side just east of the marker. It was insanely windy.
I did manage to get some decent 8 later, then lounged and took some photos of Sir Bam and a feller named Alex harvesting wind. Photos below. Bam is ten weeks out of ACL surgery and asked that I take photos of Alex instead. The last one we'll call Rehab Air:

Dang, camera's every freaking where! Yeah, I tried to keep the fins on the water... Unfortunately the dark side won... Check out Chris out on his new 16m line set... We stayed pretty late, and the wind just continued to build...

It was a few years ago buy I remember my surgeon telling me it was a minimum of 6 months to fully heal and get the blood flowing like it should. I had a donor ligament though, so maybe longer for the blood to flow but less recovery because no graph to heal from.

Nice Barge pic Bam
I should have ventured East rather than stay close to the Sand Bar.
I gave up too early.

I heard the fish were biting on the Deschutes.
