Whats up with the wild turkey pics??


They're recently uploaded pics on my facebook badge, there's a tutorial here on how to add yours. The wild turkeys were cruising through our backyard a side lot the other day, very cool!

The guys are setting up at OB now and the onsite report is great. I'll be joining them in a bit. Come on out, look for the SS kites, have some fun, try one of the kites and join us for a cold one afterwards!

Shy-
Bra!! The new kites (RPM) are SO MUCH FUN!! I used the 10 m today at Alameda and was LIT out of my mind!! (I love that).. C-dog said I jumped three thumbs high (whatever that is??). All I know is I could not believe my harness didn't EXPLODE!! The first kiteloop went totally sideways- scared the poo out of me as I came in going what felt like 40 mph!!
Dude-the hang time on the sent jumps was like stopping and having a smoke break-- Just looking down and watching everyone kite around... then stroking the kite forward and coming in like butter, it was so relaxing going BIG... That kite is amazing- I can't wait to get back in shape so I can push it harder!!
I let a few guys demo the kite too and they were all smiles!! =D> =D> Maybe they will post there comments at some point.
All I know is I'm SUPER STOKED!!
MANY THANKS,
L.M.G.

If things turn W and NW drops we'll be at Berkeley.

If things stay strong NW and today's a repeat of yesterday, we'll retreat from the coast and if Alameda comes up, we'll just go have some fun and kite there.

YA Ollie! Yesterday Alameda was KILLER, loads of kiters- EVERYONE having FUN!!!
I'll be there for sure!! Today I'll bring my quiver- yesterday the ten was solid but having an eight will make for some more freestyle fun and since it's Alameda I'll bring my twelve also...
Anyone want to try one out- just give me a holler!
