I look forward to seeing you both again this year.

I met you last year and was really impressed with what a great team you two were. Good for you!

I offered last year but you were too reserved or concerned about something and did not take me up on it. So...I offered again...join me for a ride to all the GPS points this year!

Unfortunately not. I had to take time off to help my Mother getting home from hospital.

On the bright side, She has bounced back so I am free to attend SOBB this year!

In honor of Ken (the one and true king of the playa on skates) I will be bringing my skate gear with me this year. Far from Ken's "balls like bull" approach to skated powerkiting, I intend to putz around in gentlemanly (read geriatric) fashion donned head to toe with plastic courage and free handing my StreetStar and NS3s. No hooking in for me on skates. After my freak gasoline fight accident a couple of years ago I swore to my wife that I wouldn't skate or ski hooked in, reserving that only for my buggy equipped with Jeff's AQR.

Any other skaters coming to IBX next month???? I saw a few folks are coming with mountain boards which is awesome.

DANG.
It would be fun to push you to a safe PB. You can always go faster when sharing the stoke. Be sure and take your GPS. It keeps you honest! The low friction makes flying unhooked a lot easier. You can stay out for longer than you may expect.

BOB CHILDS will always be the King when it comes to blades on the Playa. He created wheels of doom and hit 50mph. On them + Gifted us with this website!!!

Thanks for putting that together.

I know it isn't intentional but it's like one big ad' for Born Kites. I mean that in a good way.

I suspect Stephan may like to use some of that footage?

I know!!! That wasn't intentional, but it happened that I only flew Born Kites this year and my only footage was from my own helmet cam, so go figure.
