Brought my fishing rod as a hedge but was rewarded with some steady balmy southerlies - Del Ray to Shipwreck (not sure why we thought the wind would hold but got lucky) - somewhat crushtanic getting to the outside

fun day with Toby, Kraemer & Matt

Great Shotz G! It was pretty sick for a S-wind session, cherry poppin' sik. even warmer than in the summer & no rain, wow. 10+ miles, mucho respect for those goofys riding north wind. I'm sure I looked pretty chumpy riding backwards--

RPM was unscathed

Did get collected by a cleanup set about a half mile out - really dont want to fuck up out there - kept the kite in the air but the board got ripped out of my hand (nearly with arm and hand)

Board was gone, body dragged around for a few minutes but was pretty hopeless with all the seafoam, took 9 minutes to body drag/surf back in according to the gopro - seemed much much longer...

was surprised the board washed up a few minutes later - just 50 yards upwind - really didnt expect to see it ever again


Stringy you know you go Full Retard
