I missed the event, was at Sherman.
Caught the North guys at the shop on sunday. They were tired,but couldn't be nicer, and took a lot of time to discuss the products and they were of major help.

Don't own a North, but talked my buddy into 2 after I demo'd my father in-laws in OC. (Admittedly I have not converted yet, My Best's are still in good shape and a 20 hellfish on order.) But it will likley be NORTH for me next... great guys, great team, great product.

Yes! Thank you Jeff, Emily, Will and John for a truly memorable event! Images: Foggy but lit launch at Crissy. Shooting a hole through a regatta traffic jam. Charlie taking off like a banshee. 40+ kites emerging from the fog near Alcatraz. Ollie doing his double-back-flip thing at altitude - somewhere in the middle of the bay. Chip, riding up to within a few feet of some big sailing rig asking for (and getting) a beer. Is that legal? Bob skipping over huge rollers down the slot - especially near TI. LMG ripping it as usual. Everyone landing everywhere, and some feeling a sense of accomplishment. Cold beer. Friends. Good times.

Nice goin Jeff/Emily/North!
