Moose Mitts are the bomb at Addison x2

Twice around in 1:36 minutes for 14.1 miles on a very cold 32 degree Saturday. Got a really great chance to try out the brand-new Moose Mitts to see how they work and they are toasty warm excellent wind protection. I can't wait to ride more as soon as I pick up a pair of these!

Cold 12m 2fer Weekend staying warm and dry.

Near perfect 15-20-25 SSW both Saturday and Sunday at MB. 20-30+ kiters out both days running 12's powered nicely. 3 solid hours both days with no breaks - no chill. Great 2-4' wave and swell sections both days just inside the tip of the MB beach point was great for working on wave timing and figuring out the kite pull/slack and transitions. New drysuit perfection, super warm and paired with 5mm fingered gloves - loved it. 41-43 degrees no problem. Give me more weekends like this.

Lex disappoints with rain, snow, gusty holey 20-40 winds and West....

3.7 rigged with 40 N gales followed by snow and frequent drop to 20 NNW and help I need a 5.8! Jerry and I gave it our best in 30-40 degree temps which actually weren't the problem. The day was ruined by the west components and the nearly ever changing weather and inconsistent wind speeds. Shame even the waves were down for what should have been a huge day.
