2012.10.07 A great day of jumping.  Learned back rolls on my weak side, and front hand  nose grabs.  Photo below is one of my biggest stalefish grabs at McGregor Lake.  Estimated at 18ft.   This was also the first day I felt the wind hold my surfboard to my feet during a jump...  Still a long way from being able to boost strapless more than 2ft.

2012.01.14 Special thanks to Grace Au at CYREX REPAIRS in Calgary, for doing an AMAZING job modifying my jackets for snowkiting.   She added another zipper to my Goretex jacket, and custom tailored a new panel  for use with any of my other winter jackets.   This will allow me to wear my kiteboarding harness under the jackets and simply feed the hook through the small zippers.  No more jackets riding up with the harness on the outside.

2012.01.13 F-One has a great 2012 kite video called ANTANDROY....  Definitely worth downloading in HD.  It has a great strapless section.     Click Here

2012.01.12 My goal is to update my antiquated Slingshot Fuel kite quiver with newer North Rebel Kites.
2011.12.08 It is snowkite season finally in Alberta!!!
