Nothing like a bay full of 23.5 Contras, 25m Gaastras, and ass old Fuels mixed with a Peter Lynn here and there. Good times!Barclay launch probably not conducive to crappy old gear...On Thu, Jul 26, 2012 at 3:15 PM, Jason Brickner <jasonbrickner@...> wrote:
That was my goto kite for LP before my 14.5m. What are you doing with a 17m? If you need another, I’ve got a 17m Fuel up in my attic. $75 for you. No Leaks!
That's why I got a 17. I like beer!!!

Eddy...you sure the "little slower and little less altitude" is result due to unfavorable kite...or just too much of the good life & nachos & beer accumulating amid-ship? ;-)

Had fun this AM could have played longer had a I made it up sooner...and stayed later. I cheated on a 17m, but it is sooooo nice.
I think there is a chance every morning for the next week, nothing weather wise to deviate from the current pattern but nothing stellar either. Get up check meter and go early.
Unfortunately, Bill Binegar knocked me on the head or something and somehow stole my Zephyr for his week long Cascade Vacation. Therefore I'll be a little slower and a little less altitude like the rest of the kids out there. :-(
Hope to see all on water soon, as summer is half over.
