Re: [kiteboarding-29] This weeks Kiteboarding round up...

From: Ramiro A.
Sent on: Saturday, July 11, 2009 12:44 PM
Thursday morning and early afternoon was perfect. The wind was strong but manageable and the waves were not as high and really fun too play with. After 2:00 the conditions became almost impossible, so o know exactly what you mean Luc about wiping out all the time! The BBQ on the 20th sounds good. Cheers. Ramiro
