    Hey Felix, you probably will not remember me, but last summer in June I spent a week at Mokuleia and you were the first person I met there and you encouraged me to try strapless riding on my cousin's surfboard. I got the basics, and have improved in the 18 months since. Thanks for the encouragement getting me into strapless riding, if not yet onto Switch kites! Hugh
