The first day Josh was there we didn't had the best of luck with the conditions everyone was really nervous as we had a limited amount of time to shoot. On the second day I woke up with the wind wishing on my window and a storm of 20-25kts. We headed to the spot to set the park up and get ready to shoot. At that point I remember myself thinking more than once what am I doing here? The wind was freezing and the water was even more cold which made it even hard to perform on those new obstacles.

|Myself thinking what am I doing here? This place its too cold for kiting.|
I think Sam and I had been dreaming about this for a long time and the adrenaline of making it happen didn't let the cold get into our brains. We would take turns on a single kite so the other one can help with the rail if it needs to be moved or something or either watch the action.
|Here it is! Double Incline rail to bonk on the traffic sign.|
While I had my turn to rest and let Sam ride or a bit I visualized the picture. Nuclear grab of the double incline rail to bonk, the idea was to be grabbing and poking the board while also bonking the sign.
It got the kite again and tried the trick at least 15 times, it was really hard to grab the board enough time and then bonk the sign afterwards. I didn't knew we got the shot until a couple of weeks after when Josh send me all the shots from the trip. I was stoked on it and now I'm even more happy to see that KiteSpain Magazine decided to run it on their front cover.
I hope you guys enjoyed my little peak into the making off and don't forget to check out the full movie from Canada here -> http://vimeo.com/110870698
