Funday Sunday

Perfect day at my pavement paradise. Temps in the 30's, rain in the forecast took the morning off, and lots of wind. All of the above limited the non-essential personnel to a minimum.* So time to do some buggy riding. Aside from just fun stuffI worked on tacks (which are easy on windsurfers, but not so much with kite power - even Kainani says they are hard). With a little work my tacks will be as bad as my jibes. BTW - you will see a few times when a tack is way to recover from a blown jibe. I have plenty of those to work with.

Tacky video

Long and probably boring to anyone else video.

*There was the guy with metal detector, a couple getting to know each other better, a guy sleeping in his car, and a few dog walkers over the time I was there, but they all kept clear of the parking lots most of the time.

There is no off season.

Re: Funday Sunday

Yet another trip to pavement paradise today. This was dawn patrol for real. I arrived a few minutes before sunrise. Unfortunately I didn't actually see the sunrise due to mist and clouds. But some people in my house wanted a ride to the airport at 5 am - so I was already up. Eventually I got two kites wet and gave up around 11. As for the wind - pretty much as reported - 10ish. Sort of the thrift store version of last Sunday's winds. While riding I kept pondering questions like are these foiling winds or flogging winds? What if the Lone Ranger had a kite buggy?

There is no off season.
