Day 5: Should have gone back to JR. Scooped out ocean and Rodanthe pier and one guy out looking underpowered - too bad too because shorebreak looked doable. Morning fail at Salvo to try for downie to house with Bob Craig and I. Light 11-14 flow not enough to kite much less try anything. Back at house though it's up 15-20 for fun day on the Duke with 12. 3-4 hours out erases the AM but JR would have been 9. Home Dinner with Boys Pizza and Pasta.
Day 6: NNE 20-30 Strong flow for almost 9 hours on 9M! Sun again and great PM downwinder in an hour to Salvo. Great full day on surfboard with 100+ jibes wearing the harness line down to nothing. Highlight sail day at house. Dinner Watermans rare burger with crabmeat topper. We should go here more!

1pm and TJ at Cass rigging 13 = time to snowkite. I packed early in AM and decided to only bring 12 and not the 9m.... however all the kites look alike and I grabbed the 9 and not the 12... didn't realize this until I was packing the kite at 5pm to leave! Winds were S 10-15 and the lake was powder coated with 1-3" over 80% of surface. Somehow the 9 worked even though I had about dozen times where there were dead holes and the kite fell out of the sky. Got top speed of 24mph and logged over 30 miles in 2.5 hours. Really fun and only one fall trying to jump and spin. Wearing waist harness in place of seat hate the jumping aspect of not sitting down while getting lifted, seat to tight fit in ski clothes. All done by 5pm with legs fully toasted from doing all the work. Alleve and beer, beer, beer.
