Hey Dean,

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I have been out all over so havent been able to get back to you and give you definite info on that Solo Shot. But seems you got it sorted so thats awesome.

Hi Dean,

I did uMtulume in a strong SW. It was great. A very clean sizable but nice wave.  However, the differential between the wind on the outside and the wind inside was a bit scary. I was on a 6 and got caught out a few times coming in and ended up dw. However, I enjoyed it. 

Lets do it some time. I am off to Oz for 2.5 weeks tomorrow but will let you (and anyone else) know when I return if I intend making a trip.

"Thanks for this test data, it's great to find a systematic approach. I also found that Aqua Seal formed a very good bond with bladder material, and survived boiling water with no issues. I was surprised to find that GlueFix (made for kites)…"
