Leaving Saturday!
Kitebag includes:
Blast 2>4
SLE 1.5
EXP
Supersonic
extra rods, lines, handles
Guess I have the wind covered from about 5 MPH on up.
All packed up in stiff cardboard tubes and in the bag. (Blast takes a little work to fit in a 4" tube)

Wish me sun and wind!

Actually I don't know if I'd go to Mazatlan. They've obviously had a change of heart and are now against Rev flyers. I mean the Look at the statue ... someone has vandalized it and cut the handles from her hands.

At least they've left the boy alone. I'm pretty sure that's a young John B. teaching at his first flying clinic.

Cheers,
Tom

Let's see ... two days ago it was 19 degrees and snowy and blowing ... yesterday it was warmer, but rained all day until the snow disappeared ... then it followed that up with freezing rain and snow.

And then you post a picture of paradise ...

You should be happy that we're only "not talking" ...

Do enjoy ... we're watching, but too envious to speak ... well, those of us in the mid-west are ...

Cheers,
Tom

PS ... have you visited the statue of John B teaching the mermaid to fly a rev?

Thanks guys, I was just kidding. I am still steemed though about packing around two grand of camera gear and my girlfriend took the SLE sunset photo with her Nikon cool pix!

Anyway, I am going to track the statue down tomorrow, get a photo with the 1.5. Went fishing today, cooking up some fresh Mahi mahi w/ butter, garlic, and onion tonight. I'll downsize some more pics and post soon.

I'm breaking this up so as not to overload the resort's "two cans and a string" wifi.
Maybe get the PB out tomorrow. Had the supersonic out yesterday, a little above my skill level. Dive/ stop was spectacular, but even with the shortest handles, I'm way over-controling it.
