Been 20 knots for the last week after a long dry spell. The next weeks looks good too. All winter the trades are pretty good with Jan and Feb the strongest. Its 18-22 now outside and 85 degrees with very little cloud cover. Just had lunch after a morning session and a lesson and now back on the water.

Hi Eli,

I was already wondering about what happend to you?!
So you had an accident. Did it happen with a kite or anything else?

Wishing you a great time on the water and hopefully it works without pain.

Don't forget to list your skiteschool for free at:

Cheers

Yes, I cam down from a foreward/deadman one handed (kinda like an extended tantrum) and landed super hard jamming my knee over straight. Crushed the tibia plateau and broke of one section of the tibia in the joint too. Out for 5 months!
Had very good surgery for the second time in London. Will list the school.

Hey Eli,

Great News! Glad you are back shredding. I remember hearing on and off that you were wondering when you could get back at it. It seems like time can cure a great dealt. It is tough to sit it out though particularly with those excellent riding conditions you have there and Andre throwing huge airs.

Have fun and take care of your leg!
Rick Iossi

After all this time, my knee is starting to give me trouble again. I guess the screws are coming undone from all the hard landings i seem to have done! Nick is our new kite manager here in Antigua.

Shake out some specifics:

How does it compare in price to Cabarete? Accomidations...food, etc.

Is it as easy to fly to as Puerto Plata?

Is there a kite school?

Is kiting as close to accomidations as in Cabarete?

Is the bay to kite in as lumpy as Cabarete?
