Was it me or did the entire bay look like it was having a windy summer day yesterday? The ikite wind map looked like it could have been July 4th for a few hours anyway.

I was surprisingly LIT on my 14 rhino yesterday at alameda. that kite has so much rediculous low end I always forget. It doesnt depower much though so when it hits 20, it's all edging. Loved it! Oh, Bob, I made a steel/ipe bench, so no flipped chairs anymore. :)
