While Ben and John may be off in Las Vegas goofing off, the rest of iQuad (well most of them) is hard at work in South Padre Island, giving the new XTRA Vents a proper beating in 30-40mph winds....

Me, Bazzer, DeRooy and DeWillow give the XTRA Vents two thumbs up! 3 wrap frames, 90 pound lines 30 mph +

(that being said, thats pushing it, we SHOULD have been on 4 wrap frames and 150 pound lines but, ya only live once...)

A seriously nice kite in high winds.

Well KTAI went well and there were lots of time spent with old and new friends, then right before I left for SPI the
airports were closed and for the first time ever I missed an event....Posted Image Then to top it all off I have a terrible case
of the flu and am just sick as a dog here at home....Posted Image The thing that really bums me out is letting down all my
friends in South Padre Tx. down but even I can just not get it all done.... The good thing is iQuad is there and as always
where they are I am also, at least in spirit.... So Family forgive me on this one but between ice storms and a wicked
case of the flu I was just not able to make it this time.... Also Bazzer please add some photos of the award you made
happen cause bro thats all you with a little help with your friends....Posted Image Once again I'm really sorry to let everyone down
but by the grace of God I'll make the rest of the events world wide no matter what and to the team thanks for being who you are and going the extra mile, well I'm headed to bed for now but will be at it again soon.... BenPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
