Oh boy, too much of a good thing? Forecast looks scary... I am sure the poleboarders will be psyched.

At least hopefully Stevenson is doable. I don't know if I want to be out on my 7m in the Hood. Might be a good day to explore some of those spots below the Bonneville maybe...

Take the time, cross the road, and Learn how to poleboard folks! It will make you appreciate how easy kiteboarding really is...

The Bammer will be going back to his roots, see ya all at Doug's on a 3.7!

How do you fit all that poleboarding gear in that little Acura of yours bammer?

I'll be off at noon today looking for some place to try out my new 9m...

No nagging girlfriend to take up valuable room inside is how!

Good luck to all the NW wind addicts with finding a fix this afternoon!

Bam... out!

Yay! Stevenson was fun... well the 30 minute relaunching session wasn't fun. Jeff says I probably pumped up my LE too hard, doh!

Then it was a straight 3 hour session powered on the 13m. Man I was tired by the end... A few of us were so tired by the end we were crawling onto the beach after landing our kites.

Anyway, tomorrow looks like more good stuff, probably be riding further up in the belly of the beast than today, sandbar/lyle/etc.... hope to see you all out there!

30 minute relaunch? I think you don't crash your kite enough!

Yeah, I don't know... haven't figured out the relaunch on the new yarga... I think your really have to dial in the LE pressure between rock hard and "baywatch firm" so that it doesn't just keep resetting itself down in front of you when trying to swim to the side.

I'm sure I'll get it figured out...
