      We're still in Corpus/...it's beautiful....80 degrees wind blowing out of NE today so we're out on the Gulf....Scott's riding well and jumping on the surf...I can go downwind easy now.  Think we'll head to South Padre as I hear it's great for learning.
      Too much fun!
      Kay and Scott

      Sorry hit send button early...

      Saturday was another good session even thou I put my stuff away last
      week after the snow thingy! I was ready to snowkite!!!

      The water temp is still agreeable and air temp was not to bad at
      10:15. I played for an hour with 4 windsurfers and Tom C. I had to do
      the hike b/c my beach options are gone. But Brickner Beach is very
      nice now.

      After kiting I went back and flew at Barclay for another hour. I had
      a buddy show up that wanted to paraglide also so for about 10mins 2 of
      us were in the air.

      Really fun day...thinking about tomorrow again if not kitesurfing then
      more PG for sure.

      Eddy
