Had my first real session of the season today, It felt great to get wet and throw some spray. It was good to see some of the old Sherman Crew and see some of the Bay Locals ripping the river. Here's a shot of Ollie testing out his new Windwing Outrage today.Image

Hey you guys,

Today was awesome. I was a bit on the late show, I kind of procrastinated about the drive, but got going in time to see all my homeboys and girls and score a killer session! It's so much fun kiting with friends, especially when it's blowing like crazy and sunny and warm. The season is just now really getting underway, and it's still early, but a day like today makes me reflect on how cool it is to have gotten to know so many awesome people through the sport.

John - Thanks for the shot, I'll post it in the gallery also. Do you have any more?

Yoko - "Ollie finally smiles once Charlie shuts his mouth." Nice quote!! :) Not his fault though, I can be uptight and intense when rigging sometimes, especially new bridles on a new kite! Which I subsequently abandoned and just flew it in fixed-line mode. Too much stimuli to focus and make sure it was right. That Outrage will be the shizzy once the S.A.F.E. bridle is installed. I have to say, for a first time out with a new kite, it come through for me today.

It looks like it will do the same tomorrow, but I won't make it so I hope you guys can and have a blast!

Ciao,
Ollie

HAve fun tommorw. I have some family business tommorw but would be right back there if I could. :roll:
