Anyone know any good waterproof foils for kitebuggying in a monsoon? It's been over 2 months of no wind, or heavy rain and high tides. I did get one day in with 45 MPH winds and a 1.4m Buster in a field the size of an elementary school soccer field. Man I can't wait until SOBB 2020.

I was going to suggest an LEI, but looks like you are FB only. Maybe worth the investment - they would do much better in the mud there I would imagine. And after that it's only a few more steps to the bay :D

I've been following a guy on YouTube in your area (Angus/SlappySan), and he's been saying the same thing about the wind there. His last 2 sessions have been pretty much victory at sea.

Success today, steady onshore winds around 15 mph at Garry Point, me and the boy were out for a couple hours today before the winds died down, 12m Access did beautiful for us. Next weekend the wind should be cranking, we have a small depowerable on it's way. Just need to talk to a certain someone about finding me a 18m Chrono for those light wind days.

Braved the knee deep mud and water to drag some gear out to Mud Bay. It's the worst I've ever seen the access path. Once we got out onto the flats, beach was sopping wet, but the wind was good and the sun was shining, Best day we'e had out there in a long while.

A couple days late, but had a fantastic weekend snow kiting Lake Sacandaga. Had the entire lake to ourselves, snow and wind were perfect and picked up all day. Unfortunately it was too cold for my poor old GoPro, so I only got a couple minutes of footage.

What did I do today..?
I fixed my PkdJoy2 after a stormy run last Saturday.
Took the complete bridle from an old one that was completely blown up and put it on this one.
New lines with strength 220/110kg and better handles.
Just got back from a 'dry' test run and it works like it always did..
Really happy that the problem was just that. :D

Pkd Joy 2m
