Kite Naked - August 1-5 - Sherman Island

Post by kitenaked » Tue Jul 24, 2012 8:53 am

Is it a demo or is it a party...? We like to do both...

Full Moon kite session August 2.

If you have been looking to ride the Wainman and Shinn gear, our party is just 8 days away!

Lots of cool gear to ride, like the infamous Shinn Monk as well as the Joke from Wainman...

Surf boards from Wainman.... Gambler, Passport, and Magnum.

Of course the 2012 Wainman Rabbit kites and the updated Carrot bar.

We will be doing a photo shoot up at the 2nd Island during Saturday midday so kite on by for a little camera time.

Photography by: http://www.tanjakopper.com

We will also have Wainman prorider Jeremy Lund for the week for some help with big air / kiteloop training during the photo shoot.

You need some help with your kiteloops? Stop on by! We will get some pics of your cool style or your carnage.

Always wanted to try a full moon session. Any hints about preparing, other than to buy glow sticks?

Tips for full moon sesh:
1. know how to attach your lines without having to see them
2. Bring a headlamp to help with #1
3. Know what the tides are doing
4. Get a solid buzz on by 10 so you can be good to go later
5. Get zflow, yours truly, very buzzed and he will help you ;-)...at a bare min take some fun pictures
6. Go easy on the freestyle stuff - loosing your board blows in the night time
7. Don't go too far into the channel
8. Have friends on the beach with lights so you can see where you need to return
9. Pay attention to where you friends are on the water
10. Repeat step #5

Get sum, Z
