10-25-08 West Dennis Pond
Saturday was an excellent day for strong SE winds and the pond at West Dennis Beach.
I picked up Sumpamda in Boston and hit Rt-3 for the bridge and Jermy had left and was already on Rt-6. The wind picked up to about 17 and was expected to gain from there. When we arrived Kristof and Jermy were pumped up and about ready to go. Sump and I pulled out the new Wainman Hawaii Rabbit kites to take there maiden flights. Out came the 12m Boss and the 9m Smoke and the day was about to take shape!
While rigging I saw Jean Francios and Helen show up in the van. I was supper psyched to see them as that meant their were now 5-6 Rabbits to hit the water. It was great to see them and funny that we had all the Rabbits in MASS and beyond at the same beach!
I think I did 2-3 tacks on the 12m and realized a crew was forming in the pond. I signaled to Jermy to head over to join the group. It was awsome! Flat water and the wind just kept building! We were tearing it up for hours! So much boosting and big loops were all around. Justin and Sump were going big!! Jermy was jumping now more than I have ever seen, even backrolls appeared!
