I'd love to go, winds are just too light right now though. How often do you fly around here?

It can be gusty depending on the wind direction but its fairly high up on the southern ball fields. Its a old capped dump so like today with the winds out of the north I will be down at the southern fields so that the wind is not as turbulent. the best days their are when its out of the south west.

I took it out last weekend and unfortunately, the winds were gusty but strong when I got there. When I acutally got going it was so much fun and I went quite fast. I even had speed wobble at one point. The board is real smooth, and I couldn't have asked for more. I gave up after about ten minutes- the winds were going from 0 to 20 every other minute and with a fixed bridle, that's not so easy to deal with. Hopefully next weekend I'll get some better winds and give it a good test.

Weird pain/strain on the little inside bone knob that doesn't want to clear up entirely. I can, and have, buggied a little since. But I'm still not back to my normal bouncy self. I'm afraid they'll tell me I need some big brace or crutch to get it finally healed (which is nuthin compared to the injuries some of the other metal0implant guys here have).

I just wish my shoulder would stop complaining. But I suspect the only way that's going to happen is if I wear a sling for a while so I stop irritating it :(

It's from before Wildwood, when I was using my board for downhill and clipped a bush. Oddly, it never seems to complain while kiting, just while doing random stupid stuff like taking off a shirt.

How was Colmar Manor on Sunday? I forgot to check the winds in DC, but was hoping you guys got out for some fun while I was trying to drown myself at Cape Henlopen. :)

The direction is supposed to be out of the southwest, perfect for west potomac park. I hope it holds true till the weekend.

You can't always even believe what you read when your standing right there with your kite. The other day it was predicting 12 knots at that current time, but I was standing there with my kite on the ground in 1 knot. Some little girl came up to me asking what I was waiting for.

Wish I could make it out this weekend, but Iím not going to have any time.

Hmmm.... southwest winds... I hear Dewey beach calling my name... Thats the perfect sideshore conditions for New Road... :saint:

If that direction holds, I might have to go kitesurfing again. Dont know how many more chances I'll get before the water gets too cold. If it turns more west, then I might hang around DC to hit Anacostia, or "the bowl". However, it is way to early for any of the predictions to be right... :frog:

Plus...it's a relatively small and, uh, apparently a well "urbanized" area.

Instead of driftwood and dried jellyfish, you prob. have to watch out more for discarded glass pipes! :ninja:

But, it IS close to me and is a proven spot.
