Great session Sunday arvo, all Corner inlet to myself, perfect power to work on toeside carves and jumps.
perfect water temp to inspire not to crash.
finish pack up kite then step into water to wade out to get foil.
Rock I stand on slips and there goes left knee.
Three weeks to go till WA Kiting holiday.

You have my sympathy. Knee injuries are a ****.

That's nothing
I just sat down after another hard day and poured my beer into a stubbie holder.
Good news - I saved half of it.

Which half?
the shimmer or unshimmed.

You may not like my next comment.
I recently bought 2 Naish foils as they do not require shims.
However Naish foils have an easy stab adjustment system so I can go my hardest playing with the stab aoa.
I now have fun without going on the water.
PS I still have my Zeeko Carver and love it as well.

Sadly it sounds like your shimmering days are numbered

God, sorry to hear that Ral. Tweak or a buggering? Can you just rest and relax it out or will it need a shimming?

My knees are shot anyway and this is just a bad tweak that will be ok in couple of weeks but sore and restricted for longer.
Still not as bad as spilling half your beer.

Australian beer? I would have been happy if I'd spilled all of it.

All of that needs to be spilled too. And I mean ALL of it.

Or are we now just having a therapy session.
