Cool vid Lonny! I like your spot, windy & flat as my bath tub. How deep is it? looks like you can pack up and walk home in the middle of the pond? I also liked that flag in the middle of nowhere, is that to make sure you haven't reached Cuba yet? :D

Thanks Tungsten, really glad you liked it! Fortunately, I have not ended up in Cuba yet. :wink:

The super flat spots you saw in the GoPro footage was Matheson Hammock at a low, still outgoing tide, which for obvious reasons is my favorite time to ride there. It can be completely dry and the turtle grass gets exposed, which can be fun to try to go over with your skim - especially when you eat it and smell like garbage the rest of the day. :lol: It can be also just inches of water with barely a ripple, and yet can be blowing 20 plus! It is awesome for skimming. A lot of fun.

The flag in the video is actually a warning marker from a boat that was submerged there many years ago. It was dragged in via one of our hurricanes. Mostly the boat is gone now, but we still keep a flag there to gauge wind speed and direction.

Cool brother. Glad you enjoyed it. Not quite as good as some backside smacks though! 8)

Todd is really nailing those sent jumps. I have been working on mostly transitioning a lot of the tricks I do unhooked as well. We actually did talk about olling the flag, and then we came to our senses. :lol:

Coming from one of the best kite skimmers out there that is high praise. Thank you! Your PayPal account has been credited! :wink:

I do not think I have ever spent that long to work on 5 minutes of video, but half the time was spent just trying to learn the programs. :D
