How many runs did you do today? I think I saw you do at least 3 runs from upper launch to the lower launch.

obviously alameda would be nice but it will probably be a little too North. 3rd is the obvious choice. but i am lazy. Could be possibly, TOO gusty??? We'll see. it's not even 9 and the caps are creeping around all over!

looks like my laziness is finally going to drag me to Alameda midday. I realize it is gusty, but can't resist after meetings in Berkeley at 11. Guess it'll be my chance to meet your crew out there. go easy on me.

Or would berkeley marina be better? haven't kited either spot in N NW.

Hey! I got two runs in. After the demise of my 13m a couple weeks ago and some recent discussion as well as research, I was inspired to experiment further with my self rescue techniques. That dug into my time on top of the water a little bit but was time well spent and quite entertaining in its own right.

Looking forward to my number of "runs" going to one as staying up wind becomes more and more of a reality...

Yesterday was probably my best day so far. I was STOKED by the end of the session...Like had to call best friend stoked...

Looked like a lot of people were having a fun day out there. A lot of big boosts in the pockets of good wind...felt like the stoke was on!
