      Reading the reports from Mother's Day.  Sounded pretty on the edge.  At risk of sounding like a mother hen, be careful boys on those Spring time fronts passing thru days.  We all know how scary gusty they can get.  40 mph and 10 ft. water devils is serious risk stuff.  And conditions can change fast.  When Steve L. and I were in SPI week of 15 April, we learned a kiter in those more benign conditions was killed just a week before we got there.  And Rod Williams just sent us notice of a windsurfer killed at Rufus.  It would be devastating and crushing to have a catastrophe like those happen here.  I kinda like all you guys (even though Steve L. doesn't !)...
      When the stoke for water time after a long winter collides with frontal days...just give it an extra measure of caution
      I'll see you out there one of these times when it warms up.  Have a great season all.

      I don't have the sense to give up unless someone else is there to tell me.  Alot of times I have pumped up the kite and thought, 'Am I going to regret this later when I am draging in a damaged kite or worse, a damaged me?'

       and i say oh what the hell I can allways go back to golf when I am to old to kite.   Hope to see you all out soon, except Ed who will be off to CC later this week, lucky bum.

      Today was the most challenging wind ever! crazy flukey! I was taken out by a water devil that was gusting in the 40's and spitting water 10 ft in the air! i put my kite in the water and swam in. soo scary! I am humbled to say the least.
      be careful out there people.
      btw- Tony you are a wild man. Every time i see you out there lauching these moster jumps and blowing up at like 40 mph! How do you do it?
      Cheers, Ryan

      Last one on the water and wow that was fun.
      Had ICR to myself and the wind was all over the place.
      I only had my old 2004 cstyle 10m but I forgot what a challenge it is to ride those things in the big gusts.
      No depower, just ride it out with all the edge you can hold, jump or in the worst case...just butt dragg yourself till you stop. It is also wierd to be on that style of kite to remember how they move across the window, jumping forward with the gusts and falling back in the lulls.  Over all it was a real challenge but in some ways more fun.  Like skiing the black diamond instead of the cruiser run.  Well any way at least I have a kite to get me through the next couple of weeks till I get my 13m fixed.  So if you see a red white and blue kite coming at you fast in a big gust, give me some room downwind as I may not have any edge left to hold.
