Yesterday was a truly glorious day of kiting on Flathead. Sun and smooth south wind all day. I started on the 12 meter speed and after a few big jumps I decided it might be windy enough to bust out the new 10 meter Flysurfer Unity. What a cool kite. It does not feel like the other Fysurfers I have flown. It kind of reminds me of a Fuel. It turns very quickly, and when combined with a solid edge set it rips you off the water. The hang time is not like it is with the speed kites, again more like the fuels. It is fast to redirect and land with power and speed. The kite water launches easily and the 5 th line safety works well. No tangles or spinning foil mess. I think it will be a great snow kite as well. Let me know if you want a demo.
After I wrapped up the morning session I headed to big fork and had some lunch. Dan and Bob came out for the afternoon session and we had a blast. Back on the 12 speed to me, 13 edge for bob, and a 14 rally for Dan. We rode well into the evening and all went home pretty whooped. It was one of those days I would of have wanted to be any place else. Sun, friends, smooth fresh water winds. It just doesn't get better.
