Test Pilot

Chapin- Nice day! Sunny, crisp, windy. I use my twin tip, my surfboard, and my fantastic new experimental piece-a-junk board.

It's a long narrow antique kiteboard that has been carefully re-engineered to look and perform just like a modern, hi tech ride.

I hacked off all the excess board on either side of the footstraps. New size is 83 x 40. No fins.

I can't believe this pie plate works! It's fun. Like kiting with nothing on my feet except straps. It's especially fun when I let my weight get a tiny bit forward on the board. I take an invigorating ride over the handlebars. Maybe I should change the name of this blog to Stupid Shit with Kites. Kerri's idea- Thanks for that.
