I did a superman crash yesterday foiling and ripped my kite in half. After resurfacing and checking the yard sale, I ditched my destroyed kite and started swimming for the foil. I did a quick calculation of replacement costs and the board and foil won.

Two young foilers came over and checked on me and I said I would appreciate a tow in since I was mid river. Will gave his foil to his buddy and he took off foiling with Will's foil under his arm...amazing! Will then hung on to my footstrap and drug me across the river with me hanging on the back.

10 minutes later I see his buddy dragging my shredded kite back to the ES on a foil! These guys were amazing with their concern and skill level. I appreciate what they did and and I appreciate the wonderful kite community we have in the Gorge. You guys rock!
