Dang, I had no idea. I guess if I don't look at forecasts I wouldn't know!

So, what did I miss? _>:<

I was overpowered much of the time on a fully depowered 12m and I weigh 170 lbs. It was great for jumps, though. Probably would have been just fine on my 9m, but jumps wouldn't have been as much fun. Overall--awesome day. I counted over 20 kites in the water at one point.

I am 200 and was fine on a 14m until about 1:30 then it was too much. Anyone going out there today? The forecast looks better for 3rd ave/coyote point area today on ikitesurf.

Yesterday at 3rd was great.

Pretty powered up on my 10M @ 170lb. I'll be out there today if/when the wind picks up. Forecast is looking good. I'll be on my 10M North Rebel again.

Awesome waves & wind this weekend! I'm looking forward to more shredding in the Bay!
If anyone needs a deck hand or launches, feel free to add me to the crew list.
