The Delta-v team learned how to find their “leading edge” this past weekend, and we’re not talking about their ability to stay on top of the market.

Holding their offsite in Hatteras, North Carolina – the mecca of kitesurfing – the team took a crash course in wind theory, kite control, and wave riding (some were to lucky to enjoy the latter activity more than others).

Next time you come across a Delta-v team member, feel free to quiz him or her on the definition of “leading edge.” If an answer doesn’t come to mind, then they might be one of the few that got more experience in “body dragging.”

Leading Edge Definition: the front of the kite where the air flows through first.
