After 3 planes, 3 taxis, 1 hotel room without a toliet that flushed, no hot water, and a tv with no remote and most of the buttons to make it function pushed into the set, and about a dozen ´´louts´´ i made it. Lout is an Indian word for those guys that want to do everything for you from taxi driver to changing money.



One of those louts actually said gimme your passport and i¨m help u out... F·"!&er! the nerve of him.



So, El Yaque, the city is no big deal, it´s from what I can tell about a block long. I have to go into Palomar to go Salsa dancing and see the more cultural artsy fartsy stuff. but I imagine is has nothing to do with the town but the water and wind. As for entertainment American style.... nada. btw, speaking spanish is quite handy when coming here.



No wind today so no riding, though i do plan on putting up the 05 fuel 11m slingshot. Just becasue i have never flown this kite and because i i want to check it out.



btw, the people that work at the bar at Velawind have no concept of how to make a drink! each one was so watered that after 3 i hardly noticed a buzz. i think either i´ll have to buy my own bottle and spice things up, do shots (yuck) or just stick to the beer.



I´m staying at www.jumpnjive.com. the room and location is new and it´s clean. for $40 a night ya´can´t beat it!





anyway, i´m here and safe.



peace out

Jorge

... which literally means its blowing hard.

another morning session and more attempts. each morning and some afternoons i´ve been spending as total of 2-4 hours out in the water. broken down for today comes to about an 15 riding on the water, 45 attempting to ride ( get up and go real slow or super fast for some ungodly reason) and an hour of of just general attempts.


i went out with the 11 and needed to depower it by the time i was done about to half. i didn´t think that i had downwinded too quickly but i suddenly found myself near the end of where the launch typically picks up the bobblers. my word for those who are not technically adept enough to land the kite on a certain part on the beach and thus "bob" in the water till they are picked up.

the wind was a bit gusty this morning. it picked up quickly after i had gotten out of the water at around 1:30 . already there were mostly 9´s and some crossbow style kites which were bigger.

i´ve got more things tuned in in regards to kite position, been scolded for looking at the kite, posture.


If i had known, 4 summers ago that my progression to perfection would be more like the windsurfing learning curve, long and steady rather than the straight up then horizontal... i would i would have still done it.

as for this afternoon. just a good dinner, conversation, begin collecting emails addresses, and a photo shoot after the windsurfers comes in
