Yesterday the sun didn't come out and the wind was cold. Only a few kiters went out as the wind was up and down and the cold air kept most of us hiding behind shelter. We did have some entertainment however. Jeff tried out our new 30M kite. It was blowing 12 to 18 knots, not the ideal conditions for such a huge kite. We had someone hold him down when we launched, just in case. Being so powered up, it flew great and Jeff looked like he was having a blast catching good air and doing back rolls. Most of the time he was digging the edge of the board in as hard as he could, fighting the obvious power of the kite. We bought the kite as a novelty as it was on eBay, brand new with bar and lines, for about $100 and it was well worth it. It truly is impressive.
