Winds were about 3 to 6 mph all day, my kite is absolutely tuned into this wind range. There were huge crowds around but I placed a couple of safety cones in my flight zone and stopped everyone from sitting or standing in my area, (sighting safety concerns and my right of first arrival)
I provided a few lessons, chased the spectators crossing into my flight zone, plus the lifeguards, beach patrol and city cops naturally. It was a fantastic afternoon, jamming to the music and practicing my slack line tricks.
People who fly in these conditions all the time are so incredibly spoiled. Smooth steady winds & gorgeous sights (wink-wink!)
The next day I came back again, but the wind was stronger and my life returned to normal. I even met up with Dave (Monkeyboy) for a few laughs late in the evening Wednesday.
Alas, I'm back in the no-wind DC Metro area again, sitting in my office working on a Friday afternoon, but what a great time I had on this road-trip.

But, my salvation came once I got out on the field... no one there but me and about 100 geese, crapping all over my flying area... It's great fun chasing them away with my Revs...lol
But, I had a 'Chicago' steady 8mph wind out of the north and my 1.5 SLE never touched the ground during the pathetically short hour I had to fly.... a beautiful 3-D blue sky with giant puffy cumulous clouds... No music for me as lately, my music is the sound of the wind blowing past me from behind, the occasional singing of my lines in a gust and the sound of my 1.5 zinging through the air...
It's really amazing to me that after a stressful and hot week, when I should have been in a terrible mood, my Revs can change everything....
Now, who do I have to thank for a truly life changing, mood altering hobby like this?
