    Ha! Yeah, small world! My wife's dad has a cabin on Bill's Island (where you likely saw the flyboarding), so we usually spend a week or so up there each July.

    Keep in touch. We'll have to get out there soon. You are welcome to use my foil if you don't have yours in yet.

    Keep in touch for sure. Any issues with getting a boat on Willard this year? I have a V drive and I'm always paranoid of prop strikes getting out of the marina.

    It was still pretty shallow a couple weeks ago. Probably only up about a foot or so from end of season last year. Hopefully it is getting higher. Not sure I'd be comfortable launching in the South Marina yet, but it was fine in the North marina if you stick close to the ramp and dock. I have a V Drive, too, and we managed fine, though the wind pushed us in to the ramp pretty quick while I wasn't paying attention and Greg had to get wet and cold a little bit prematurely to rescue me.

    I echo the coaching thing. Once I learned to taxi, I desperately needed help on jumping. My jumps didn't improve for a while, until I rode with someone who actually knows what they are doing.

    In August, we should do bikes in the morning, foils in the afternoon.

    Just imagine Chris Daughtry, but a little shorter, and instead of a guitar and a black leather jacket, he's got a Death Blade II and a black wetsuit. :)

    Dang... what an awesome photo! He may need to start filing a flight plan with air traffic control with that kind of altitude.

    I love the sunset pics others have taken but this picture takes the prize. Not sure how it could be topped?

    Specking of sunset pictures this is my favorite picture ever and best of all I am married to the great photographer. This is Jake Bradly at Havasu.
    Thanks for all the compliments everyone. I love to get out and ride as much as I can and meet all the foilers. I love this sport. Flynbrian call me and I can get your contact info and I can text you when we are heading out.
