Awesome day had by all, thanks for coming out.

Not real easy conditions but we made the best of it. Westerly but changed directions frequently and blew between 15 to 22 mph at
times as the little storm cells blew through. Very exciting stuff.

Meat was totally rippin it up, he has no problems going fast!
I chased Sunset and Eli, as always, up and down the beach all day.
It was one for the record books.

Is it possible to design for strength, if the designer doesn't really understand what strength is?

Was a good time. Though you may have had to use half of your quiver to stay properly powered... soooo much wind variation. But when is was right there was some hauling of ass to be had. Today was just too rainy to get back out. Now I'm ready for more.... oh well, I guess this gives me time to get my hands on a bigger depower!

SOLD! The question is... should we cut off 1.5m2 from each side or 3m2 across its length. Hmmm, definitely lengthwise...higher aspect! It's cool, I have sewn once before. :thumbup:

Nasty down in Rockaway it was. @ chris- hell no! If it's willing to bite a sweet 'ol Canadian like Sean. I can only imagine what it would try do to me.
Looking for something around 8m.
