      What Mike is referring to . I went up for a jump and at the apex a bridle line broke. the kit went into a down loop and I hit the water and immediately pulled the release , kite ended up in a spiney olive tree . but only a 3 inch tear . Tragedy averted . Now if that line would of broke in the middle of CJ . I could of had a case of hypothermia by the time I got back to shore . So everyone check your gear . Any way got in 2 solid hours it was 7m but Mike and I flew 9m . I had it 100% depower and flew it over head with the  bar pushed out as far as I could reach  all afternoon . the water is rite at 50 to 51 degrees and the air temp did reach 55 . Jack windsurfed and used his AHD gorge board and a 4.5 . though he said he could of used a 4.0 . the swells were as big as I ever seen them . they were crashing over the spillway it looked like Katrina battering a sea wall . very impressive.
