Harrison’s epic day and epic save!

Classic day out of the north, Northwest 20 to 30 mile an hour winds perfectly powered on my 7 m. Went all the way out to the channel and played on the far side in the waves for about an hour while enjoying sun and the entire place to myself until the wing tip on the kite touched the water. Next thing I know my kite falls down because of the slack lines nose first and becomes inverted. Thank goodness Craig came to check me out and help hold the kite for the next hour of figuring out the lines and saving myself from a long swim in. All in all a great day, but what a blessing to  have God looking after me. The only downside is the Strava on the Watch wasn’t working! Probably got in 20 or 30 miles easy. Beer me!!!

Back to Lex for Monday repeat with a Lite Downie

Should have stayed put at Lex. 9m Jester and Sun. 20-25 North winds. But went for it and found PSM down the coast at N 18+. Enough to ride and some waves but certainly not epic. Fast 1:36 with Sean and Craig. Classic sunny north.

Monday and late drive to Lex! Foil and Duke

3 hours driving for 2 solid hours sailing. 45 minutes on foil to start was good and fairly smooth until winds picked up and then the waves way out were crazy mixed up on the foil. Lots of jibes and no falls! 

Then on the Duke 9m made it work only one up to the north beach where under powered it still was really good in the shore waves. Coming back to the break wall there was nothing just made it back in. Great day 20 kiters out! And Ted Nugent playing in the village theater!!!

Saturday 2 times Ponto. Dry, super rocky and loose.

Dry and rocky. Actually a butt kicker done twice. Wore me out on a perfect AM ride at 75 degrees and sun. A lot of riders out.
