Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
Ahhhh…ya. I'll ride the coast thank you very much.
Well.. suddenly I feel like taking up snowkiting
i have this growth on my shoulder after kiting the pond. should i see a doctor?
Yeah laugh all you want but I think the last laugh goes to the guy ripping up butter all by himself there yesterday.
No worries, just joking... the whole bay area is all crap anyway.
Pond A4... toll plaza... 3rd ave... it doesn't matter, just don't drink the water.
Kites: 2013 F-One Bandit VI: 12m, 9m and 7m.
Board: 2013 F-One Acid 134x42 & 5'6 Fish.
Harness: Underwave "Imperial" vaccust.
Wetsuit: Underwave Sultan shortleg 4/3.
Did you ever get the results from the water test?
Still nothing back yet. Sorry.
Cool - had guessed it was RPSkater. Was tempted to come back and join you. Unfortunately commuting by bike and carrying gear are mutually exclusive for me, and the chance it might blow there not often worth sitting in traffic.
Next time I'll know to look for that growth on your shoulder!
Got the results back. Posting the one interesting page:

Unfortunately, it doesn't tell us too much. It tells us that both E.coli and Coliform bacteria were found, but nothing on the concentration. Sorry, I really thought the report would tell us more.
On the other hand it does tell us what metals were detected.
A blue circle means: A contaminant was detected above the min detection level but not above the referenced standard.
The yellow triangle means, the contaminant was detected above the standard.
The standard in this case being drinking water.
All in all, this doesn't really tell us that much about the water quality. This was a 6 page pdf with a lot of stuff in it. I just posted the "interesting page", considering nothing else other than Chloride and Sulfates were even detected. Please feel free to PM me for the full attachment.
Sorry for all the hubub, which ended up not really amounting to much.
