opinions are like assholes everybody has one, the bar was too small, it was set for there high friction setting making it hard to move the bar, and the bar was too close to me, the bar is very adjustable, and ass setup for Demo's I could get not feed back from the bar as to the feel of the kite.

I'd like to try the Rapture today but at 2pm there is very little wind over here in Berkeley. Maybe it will come up in a bit.

Ollie - Thanks for pulling the event together. The high tide made the start a bit hectic - not much beach to work with....the WW guys were mellow and it all worked out.

Much thanks for the cold beverages post session. Wish the wind was more cooperative for the demo....it was typical Berkley unlike the sweet day before.

Flash is one of the originals fathers of freestyle ripping: he rides a directional and sends it ever so hard. I have a lot of respect for his style of kiting. Very smooth.

Good wind + waves, Z.

I got there late and the wind was dying so I headed home. Was crazy seeing that many kiters at Point Emery but pretty cool as well. Oh well. Gotta work to pay those bill, maybe another day!
