What are you doing this monday? 12-6-04 I am anxious to take you up on your generous offer. (thanks by the way). I can't wait till the demo! I have monday off and could head up your way. As I said before I'll buy you lunch or a 6'er or something for some of your knowledge.

Blair,

weekdays are tough for me to comit to.

I usually only go if it's perfect during the week, otherwise I can't justify the time off work.

Results: KillaHz Tahoe SnowKite Tour #1 ....

What a big success!! Thanks Gabe for the great guide, and, since I was the only one to show up ..... private snowkite lesson.

For all those that missed it ...

I drove up Saturday morning, met with Gabe, we stopped by the meadow to check it out. When he felt gusts to about 3, he got excited that it was going to be good (I was like .... huh??!! ... later to learn that it really doesn't take much wind to snowkite) ... we grabbed everything, went out, pumped up 14s, lined up ... then the real lessons began ... first off, the light-wind self-launch ... now, this one I would never have thought of.

See pictures I have posted in Multimedia | Members Pics | david | "in the Snow baby!"

All in all, I loved it ... it is so very fun. Can't wait to do it again ....

Mucho Kudos to KillaHz for the info, now everyone please go to http://www.1cps.net and buy a calendar and video !!

So, who wants to go .... after this dump coming, Wednesday or Thursday should be good, or the weekend.

Let's go BAAAABBBBYYYYY ....

Hello David!

Thanks for the props.

It was a good day indeed...nice view, huh?

The winds are cranking today and we are about to get s ton of snow. Nice Launch instructional shots. Hard concept to grasp until you see the reasoning behind it.

The Ozone crew is coming to town this weekend for a free demo.
