A frustrated kiter myself

Crissy sensor taken out by kite.

Hi Gang,

Yesterday the Crissy sensor atop Anita Rock was taken out by an out-of-control 12m red with green stripes Slingshot Fuel. Fortunately the kiter was rescued by the Coast Guard near Alcatraz.

Getting this sensor fixed will take time. It is a Schedule 40 1.5 " stainless steel mast so it will take time to buy and ship a new mast and cellular electronics, solar panel etc. We also need CG permission to board the Nav. Aid. Then to fly a repair crew in, rent a truck, charter a boat and then hope for a calm day.

The very first step is to assess how extensive the damage is to the unit.

So we could save some time if one of you could use a telephoto lens and photo the entire sensor so we can see what is missing/damaged.

Send the photo to mike@iwindsurf.com

Thanks,
sanjose_kiter

Read the prior post on Crissy Paradise. In other news sanjose_kiter did you find the laundry list of items you lost at Alameda kiting over a 2 week period. I believe 3 boards, your wetsuit and a Harness.

Yeah, found EVERYTHING except the wetsuit & harness.

My handling skill is good enough for Alameda, 3rd, Sherman but not good enough for Crissy so I 'd stay away until I get better.

lmao -- I don't know why I don't spend more time on this forum...

PS: thank you teabag_kiter for taking out one of the three sensors I pay $10/month for.
