Charlie don’t surf! (& neither do we with no wind)


Mark: You either surf or you fight.

Ryan: Are you crazy God damnit? Don’t you think its a little risky for some R&R?
Mark: If I say its safe to surf this beach Ryan, then its safe to surf this beach. I mean I’m not afraid to surf this place, I’ll surf this whole f…ing place!

Mark: Charlie don’t surf!

later that day……..

Pete: Your mission is to proceed up the Cuyahoga River in a Navy patrol boat. Pick up the Don’s path at Avon, follow it and learn what you can along the way. When you find the Don, infiltrate his team by whatever means available and terminate the Don’s command.
Ryan: Terminate the Don?
Vic: He’s out there operating without any decent restraint, totally beyond the pale of any acceptable human conduct. And he is still in the field commanding douche bags.
Mark: Terminate with extreme prejudice.
Pete: You understand Ryan that this mission does not exist, nor will it ever exist.

    By the way just got back from 2 25knot sessions in the warm waters of Naples FL.

    1. Hey Pat

      That was Zack, he was the land boarder who posted comments during the summer. He said he had a great time out there. I go to school with him

      Mark A

  8. Big day at the bay. Don rolled from C-town in 4WD with a last minute call out. Mark A and Zack helped me keep C-kites the majority. Pete was a little late and non believing the slew of 7’s and 9’s in the air but added another 9 to the mix. Gary…I don’t know how you didn’t get cold! Thanks everyone for the great turnout!

    1. yes that was fun…great wind and snow…..sore!

      1. Yes it was a great and I am looking forward to the next session.

        It was also nice to be out there with so many other kites!

  9. Slightly underpowered on a 13 at Pburg soccer fields. Still fun, but the snow was pretty light

      1. I get done working at 1:00 tomorrow and will meet up with you guys if you have a decent place to ride. Give me a call 419-350-0089.

        1. I went out there to check out the conditions and there is plenty of ice but the snow on top is thin and patchy. I am going to try and find a spot with better snow conditions.

    1. I’m working until 5 and then might hit the ice near Cullen Park. Safe……something with grass under the snow? 😉
