- Jul 21, 2008Thats a shitter John. On top of that to get the REAL points you have
to come into the wind shadow to pull a trick. Well file that away
for next years games. Billy lost his chicken loop and made it back
to shore grabbed another loop and still should have won his heat. It
was absolutely lame they gave it to a wake skate doing goofy flat
water skate tricks. Thats cool and all but nowhere the skill level
needed to do KGB's etc. Some of the judges had no clue what level to
score tricks and there technicality. One even told us the night
before he was looking online to try to figure it out. Se la vie.
Saw J making some movie magic on his way through on Sun eve. Had a
great time mostly on the 9 but 7's and lower were the go to kite on
dangerous Sat at Hood. Kiters from all over the US and the long
distance prize went to S(?) Lenten from Holland and ALvaro from
Spain. All and all it was sick sick sick kiting, non stop. Im
barely able to walk but if Lucky is lucky its ON! you guys should
make that a vaca for sure next year. And the nectar beer flows
