Nice images, as always. I particularly like the one where the perspective makes it look like the rider is doing a frontside 50/50 on the jetty... Very Happy

Slither you are entombed !

Was a good week for February - hanging with Tak and stringy for a moody Stevenson session and Saturday on the north strip for some frontal north westerlies with Barfly, Toby, Matt D and Mark 14’ @ 12 sec

I regret to inform you that the STOKE METER is BROKEN Thumb's Up

The last measurements were in EXCESS of the last known measurement at Stoke Level 9000+ . (Crews have been dispatched to UTAH to find the remaining pieces and hopefully locate the black box in hopes of an eventual repair and return to function)

SNOW KITE FUN @Strawberry Res near Heber, UT It's hard to see in these pics but I think I sprained my face smiling too hard...

PS - If you go hit up Steve Mayer @Cloud9 in SLC - He's a deep resource for all things wind and wings.

Wow so stoked I can't sit here. Anyone down for a go out today!!?? Already windy and sunny here in Lyle. Further east the warmer and solid wind. My sources say temps approaching 60 with isothermal compression in the Rufus corridor by 1. Further can be an option too, Help! don't wanna kite alone(again)

Loving the coloring and design of the Ghost kite in the first pic.

It is very similar to the design and coloring of the SShot REV (might of been REV2; 2007 and 2008 I believe).

Way to charge it on the Columbia and out in the ocean gents!
