What do you mean the water is warming up. I was in it with just boardshorts last week. You FL people have no respect for cold water. upon my return to Michigan my water season commenced with 2 hour 35 degree water and 50 degree air session in full body rubber.

Was the session on on your newly acquired 07 Torch III 18M?

yes sir, and you were right, torch 3 vs 2 def made improvements. Can't believe how stable that kite is in the air in low winds.

Left work today and the bouys were reading 12knots gusting to 16knots sw.. Just like michigan, sw seems to be the best wind down here. Got to my beach and the wind died. blah.

By the way, looks like there is going to be kite comp hosted by the undertow right at the beach you stayed at anytime after april 24th. The way it's being setup is a combined total score of three events: downwind strapless board race, boarder cross, freestyle. Sounds like some fun.

I definitely wasnt as extreme as some of you guys up there, but i rode some 50 degree air in tawas with a shorty on and booties before. I have respect for it! =P dang, i guess i am turning into a floridian. oh darn
