will it be pro soulfly type of winds?

At Va. Beach , east wind is onshore off the ocean. Buggy with ease both directions. And with wind 10-15 I will probably use my 5.5m classic PKD Century . Or even the 4.2 Combat(full blown racekite) if there aren't too many people out there.

Easy on that Combat, should be a good day for it.
Any day is a Buster Soulfly Pro day.:cool:

The wind was east but only around 10 mph . I got around 5 miles in just tooling around . But the main reason I went was to teach a young (23) coworker to fly.
He is a new hire I am charged with training. I saw a Go Pro sticker on his truck,so I asked what he GOPROed . He mentioned surfing and wanted to know what I GOPROed. When I showed him on my tablet what I did he was stoked. So,I had to take him to the beach.
By the end of the day he was loopin a 4.7 Rage.:P Good kid! I even let him fly the 5.5m Century I. I started him on the 2.2m buster and it took a while ,but he finally figured it out. Now he wants to get in the seat,but understands there is more than he thought as far as control. He thought it was some supereasy thing that he would just do. And he soon found out there is more going on than you think. LOL But he's got it now,and he's hooked . I had more fun teaching him to fly than riding today.:thumbup: But ,I am tired and sore now...and my cheeks hurt from GRINNING. Sorry the rest of the kokopelli kiting crew couldn't be there to see our number increase by 1. Maybe next time;)
