Although Friday isn't a clinic day, most of team will be on the beach from early afternoon on... The city has authorized iQuad to fly (as part of their celebration) in front of the promenade until the fireworks start, then everyone's gotta clear out for safety reasons.

How coincidental. The 4th July is my wife's birthday too! Mind you I didn't get her a present. Lucky we are already divorced!

Think I will try to keep mine a bit longer Jeremy.

She rolls her eyes a bit. And I must agree when she says "Another kite, you already must have about 10, and some of those you have leant out to folks." I do agree with her, just for a split second.

If only she knew how many I have got, no on second thoughts better not.

Got back a few hours ago from the clinic. I truly think the learning curve just skyrockets during these.

Hey John, remember the week at WSKIF when I finally learned how to axle my duelie.. and later that night when I fell asleep in the chair watching tv with everyone, I was still doing axles in my sleep??

Well, I just woke myself up out of a sound sleep doing a flick flack.. hahaha... scared the heck out of my dog!

Really great clinic.
thanks

I wonder, could I wrangle one of you fine folks into writing a brief report from the event?

Pros, cons, anything that comes to mind.

1,000 words... Comes pretty quick, once you start.

Would be a great help for Kitelife. ;)
