Fearing the knee again which is bad. Did a few little unhooked things to get past it. Convert is a nice kite, Aggression board super light, finless Lunacy is not a good choice :).

18
06/21/2008 Forest Kite REV 13 & 9, Lunacy 129 JK, Geoff, Bill, JE, Bernie, Kathleen, Luke, Des, but no Timmy. Overpowered on the 13, traded to 9m. At Forest for a bit then ventured to Stage Harbor. Super nice slick, worked on a bunch but not really gettin any better, must be the gear. REVs are great but Fuels for wakestyle are the way. Lots of kites at Hardings, no longer the secret spot it was. Thanks to Karen & Jim for the ride back.
19
06/30/2008 BigK Kite Fuel 11, Lunacy 129 JK, Frankie. Gusty but nice session. Rode Timmy's Fuel, great for wakestyle but REV is better all-around. Mostly on backside but a bit at Stevo's Great Isle slick. Very gusty there.
20
07/02/2008 BigK Kite REV9, Lunacy 129 JK working on pop. Mostly backside riding again. Such a nice slick. S-bends are not so good as of late, but finally figuring out how to stop the kite from downlooping. Nice session.
21
07/03/2008 1st Encounter Kite Fuel 11, Lunacy 129 Sweet sunset downwinder with Jim Carswell, who rode my 9m REV. Perfect conditions for the 11 Fuel. Worked on a bunch of unhooked stuff, tantrums, raley to blind, back to blind, indy glides, s-bends. Finally back to landing the raley to blind consistently but in new direction (to protect knee). Jim did well, rode toeside and was stoked about that. Bayside downwinders rock. Fireworks for long walk back
22
07/13/2008 SoutBeach Kite REV 13, Lunacy 129, Nobile skim Took the OuterMost ferry to South Beach to meet Jerry, Janice, Luke, Desiree. Rode ocean on skimboard in nice lil cove downwind of launch; light wind but enough to get out and ride a wave back in. Switched to sound side, riding towards North Monomoy, where wind was stronger. Nice Day!
23

Rode with Timmy, Joe_knee, Lee and the infamous NETO! Haven't had the pleasure of riding with Neto since Hatt. Great session, but can't land nothin. Ocean was super cold and scary looking. Good jumping and toe2toe backs off small waves. Killer. Thank you Timmy!

34
09/19/2008 Nauset to Chat Light Kite REV 9, skim Downwinder with Todd, Peter, Barry, Geoff, Mike, Jon Modici (sp). Nice session. Stayed on the inside having fun on foam mattress and small reformed waves til new break. Then fell 20 times trying to get out of shorebreak off of north island. North Island vertical wall was fun for zero gravity walking...
35
10/06/2008 Mayflower Kite REV 9, skim, Lunacy 129 Philip and a few others. Quick lunch session. Very onshore with incoming tide. Spent most of time on the skim. Tried Philip's quad surfboard - still not liking the fin drag feeling. Oh well. Good sandwich after also, Peterson's rocks.
