Got me some of the sunset sesh at SI. Majorly powered on a 10M!!! Got a little gusty around 4:30, but then levelled out for another hour plus.

I felt like I was riding in the Bay -- huge fog bank/low slowly moving in from the West until the wind got to be too much for the 10(!).

Killer. Nothing late season about it except the extra thick wetsuit. =D> :rock: :rock: :rock: :rock: :rock: :rock: :rock: :rock: :rock: :rock:

It's amazing how at this time of year, one or two sessions a week can get us so stoked. I hit the Bay this afternoon and conditions could have been a bit better, but hey, I am not complaining. I'm going to take what I can get!

great day at Alameda. Started off on a 17 underpowered to teabagging around 4ish and a very good couple of hours on a 12. When I came back to switch kites I was exhausted but still ran up and quickly pumped up the 12. At the end of the day I barely made it to the car and that's what I call a good day kiting.

Sorry, I don't miss that much... Wind in Maui isn't that bad at all! No wind yesterday and today but pretty windy and yes, wave was so much fun!!
I don't even use my 10m. Only 6.5 or 8.....and no wetsuits.

Yoko, it was good to see you out there. I had a moment of sobriety and wound up on a plain back home on Monday...should have kept drinking.

The waves were indeed good. As I flew out, I saw head high waves at Kite beach and kiters everywhere.

KOTA was insane. Biggest waves I've ever seen anyone kite.
