I sure have missed kiting. I've been thinking about snow and winter coming...kind of wrote off the WW for this summer. Brian Z came down to try Pepin. When he first launched there was a bit of wind but it rapidly died. Nothing kills a wind faster than launching a kite. Still he was able to get some air but not quite enough to use the board. Still it was a great site for learning...very shallow for a loooong way out and nice fetch. I have added the local kiting web sites to my blog. Check out Aaron and Emily's MNKiting and LAKAWA for kiting info.
