This time they attacked the wind vane at Old Man's. It was all for a promotional party at the shack for a swimwear company. They used a big triangular kite to fly an inflated mermaid, suspended from the guide line. They tried three times to have the mermaid touchdown on the surfboard wind vane, but on the third try, the wind vane struck back, shredding the mermaid to bits and showering the party with mermaid fragments. The kite's line was severed and it drifted off towards the freeway.
