aquaseal or seamgrip or another polyurethane glue -the bladders are made of polyurethane, so that's the most compatible. 3M 5200 is supposed to take ages to dry, I have heard, although I have never used it myself.

July 99 or 00 -not sure which. Went to the gorge for windsurfing. Saw Elliot Leboe and Lou Wainman at the hatchery, Elliot pulling huge airs with 4.9 blade over the point and landing with no splash in the pool downwind, Lou throwing raleys, low and on-water handle passes, etc. Also remember Elliot h...

I use a leash sometimes as a board caddy with my 5th line kite, walking it out 200-300 ft from the unsafe tree-lined shore to launch. I unclip it before riding (usually).
