Re: Video review - High as a Kite
- Is it right in the launch zone? I remember there was a bunch of
'crap' in the water there due to the algae over flourishing...that
ramp might help getting over that stinky crap. I remember I had to
step down on it when assisting another kiter and my foot sank into 2
feet deep of slime... yuck!
I think I saw you there that day (maybe we met?)...I was the guy
limping around with the hole in the top of my foot who was hanging
with BIG Mike...(not good to have the hole sop up lovely bacteria
laden slop from the beach! heheh)
