Re: [ksurfschool] Humble man!
- You weigh 130 lbs or something like that don't you Hung? In my book you've
got guts, bud, and you're lucky to be here. I was out in similar wind with
same kite several weeks ago and I got hammered - and I weigh 200. What
probably saved me from disaster was the fact that 2 bladders had leaks and I
couldn't fly the kite! Stay alive, later,
