great video nick! one of the reasons I came up with the kiteline mount was to help others become better kiters.
You have demonstrated that very well.
look forward to the future series.
keep up the good work.

Nick,

Thanks for the visuals!! After watching your video, I took off my straps and had a great session at Jones yesterday. Missed many jibes but kept visualizing the correct steps and I actually pulled off a couple of jibes later on in the session. I owe you a six pack or a photo shoot! Cant wait to get back on the water.

Make that a half-rack. I might be at %50 with your help, Nick. But still hard to imagine pulling one off with a Westport Maytag barreling toward me. :)

I think two things at this point:

1) everyone in the sound will be riding smurf boards by this winter. Awesome! :glasses7:

2) all these emoticons are ridiculous. :wav: :clown: :binky:

#1 - No kidding. I'm seriously wanting to get a surfboard, but I know I have a lot left to learn on a TT.

#2 - Number of emoticons are inversely proportional to the amount of wind in the Seattle area.
