Fun night, flat water and good breeze. Tonight, was one of those nights that picking the right kite was an art not a science. 30 minutes before the start everyone was thinking 8s or 9s but by the time 5:15 rolled around about half the fleet decided to go big on 10s or 11s.

Day one heats were posted and every heat was stacked. The odds weren’t looking good for the average Joe, John, Phil, or Jeff. Bluerush and F-One ripper, Phil Tressenrider started off the day with a good heat nabbing some good waves on his way to a solid second. Then Haakon went to town on his heat with a newly styled and neatly manicured facial growth, clearly a sign that teenaged Haakon is gone and man Haakon is here. Zane Schweitzer was in my heat and he was a bundle of nerves looking at my hat.
