The Journals - Ocean Rodeo's Weekly Report
UPDATED WEEKELY OCEAN RODEO REFLECTS ON THE WEEK OF WORK, WHAT LIES AHEAD AND HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD ONE RIDER AT A TIME.
Speed to burn
Days like today are a great reminder of the extreme gust / danger potential associated with large dark clouds. While running through some kite testing today, the wind was ranging from 10 to 20 knots, with the odd 35 knot blast coming through with the clouds. While an experienced rider with a bridled SLE kite can handle this, older C kites can be a real handful in these conditions due to less available depower.
If the clouds are dark and looming upwind,...its probably wise to wait for another day!
It's all work around here,....honestly!
Another rough week at Ocean Rodeo central. Nothing but work, work, work around here as we finalize the OR clothing project.
Joris (OR technical web/graphics guru) seems to be taking a long time on this one,.....I'm sure he's enjoying these images more than our regular kite pics!
