Today was mostly epic - I was expecting a super gusty survival session in angry waters or maybe boost session, but the wind actually came in smooth enough for some rotations.

Unfortunately there was a really bad accident at 3rd upper launch. Helicopter brought in. Prayers.

We are going to have to get better at policing ourselves to prevent major accidents on launch. Hindsight isn't good enough. Boardsports is working (i think) on a site stewards program to help keep people safe and launches open, but a few people won't be able to do it all. We all have to step up a bit more when we see something sketchy happening - and quickly. I'm happy if you YELL at me if you see me doing something wrong (or even possibly wrong). In fact, please do!
