Berkeley was OK today, a bit up and down, but not too holey. I rode a 10 R2, which was a bit light, but wanted to try some new stuff. Pulled off a fat kiteloop with timing a bit off and did a nice shoulder/face plant. The doc says I might want plastic surgery to fix the face, but I told him it was already like that before and I wanted to save the money anyway. :vom:
Just joking, it only stung a bit. O:)

Wind showed up at Sherman around 4. 14 mandatory, 16 better. It was a sweet flood sesh with lots of swell. Steady mellow wind for 3 hours, then around 7 it picked up quick, and everyone came in overpowered.

Sounds like it was a backwards day, with you guys in the Bay on 10s and the Delta guys on big kites.
