Franklin is at Pat right now. He's rigging up. Says I would be on my 9m.

I'm held up in town right now. Depending on when I get free I will head to Pat or try a Floodway session.

It looks like this is a hot topic. I'm going to suggest that we keep it going! At least the discussions are kite related.

Lots of beach but tons of debris at waters edge.
Washrooms are open. Gate still locked. Snow is off the road past the gate.

I'm rigging 6m, no extensions. Franklin rigging 4.5 and 4.0. 2 boards.

Well, great first wave day! Rock steady winds on my 6m. No debris in the water. Still great wind but started to bubble close to shore. Always lots on the 6 though, But noticable. Very tired.

There is water at the channel this year but could be debris hung up on the sandbars??

Water is pretty nice already. Think it could be around 10C.

They opened the gate while we were on the water. Two kiters launched in the back.

It's like that the entire length from the corner to the channel.

One of the kiters found a jigger in the debris.
