John,

Congratulations!!! May this wonderful union between the two of you bring many warm and smooth winds!

I am very happy for both of you!

I was just wondering after looking at the pic of the two of you flying, does this mean that the beautiful misses will be upgraded from the 1.5 SLE to a B-series?? From one married guy to another, you better make it a B-series Pro! :sign_kitelife:

Thanks Kent, and to all those who have chimed in since my last post. :)

Actually, she got a set (STD/VTD) of red/white B's about three weeks after that photo was taken in May. <grin>

Once she's made the move over, she'll be training up for iQuad and touring with us whenever possible.

As for the B-Pro, shoot, I don't even own one yet and it's my bloody kite! LOL

It's all good. ;)

John...
Well done! You've had a lot of interesting journeys in your life; all of which has made you who you are today. You're a good man, Charlie Brown.... :kid_devlish: oops :kid_smartass: ... no, seriously, you are a good person right down to your core. I'm happy that you get to share the journey now with a very special person.
All the best of everything for the both of you; always.
Laura

A little like a Japanese sunrise, eh? <grin>

So I wondering is there something in the water cooler in the KiteLife offices that is setting this off? :sign_kitelife:
Or maybe the iQuad team is drinking somekind of new vitamin water? :blue-music:
Either way, congrats to you John and Takako!
