New Orleans Kite Log 2007
In 2008, I rode 115 days. As soon as I get my calender entered into Excel I will post it here.

Snapshot of a year's riding:                                                                                                           Cat 5 Home Page

I have been curious about how many days I could ride during a year. I have been keeping track of each day I rode in 2007. 

Unfortunately, I did not keep detailed notes on each day, but I have listed what I wrote on my calender. If it says "Light" it means I actually rode. The days I rigged but could not ride are not listed. A "Light" note most probably means I rode a 21m Gaastra Phoenix II with a big board). "Great" means I was riding a 17m Cabrinha  CO2 or smaller kite with a 142cm board (and jumping).

"Dan's House" means the West end of Lake Pontchartrain. 

During the early spring 2007 we felt the conditions were unusually light. We rode very few days in February.

Hopefully, this should give you an idea of the local New Orleans conditions.
