A Few Kinks

I felt like I was all thumbs and toes this morning. I ripped a strap out of my board on my first waterstart. Better then that, I tried 4 boards, 2 kites, 2 beaches, but couldn't find the right gear at the right time. And none of my footstraps adjust big enough for my new size 12, 7MM booties so I could only jam my toes in the straps. On one fall my bootie toes were jammed in the straps so tight that I came out of both booties, they stayed on the board. It was pretty funny actually. I would have had a good laugh but all the fits and starts had put a kink in my brain. I think it's going to stay there until next weekend when I'll have another chance to get on the water and work it out. In the mean time all of my boards are going down to the workshop for footstrap work.

Mayflower, Chapin, Kitesurfed, 4 boards, 2 kites, with Jean, Peter, Igor, Kristoff, Johnny, Jeremy, Alex & Franz from NY.
