Kirsten’s mini bio:
What’s a Sharp Shot?
Like all the trick shots I share, this is my first time ever attempting this shot, and this is the first shot. Pretty excited!…
Aperture sights make the graphite tip invisible. I can just barely pick up the wood against the sand, and so I aim slightly high. How does the expression go? “Aim High….
Hope you enjoy! “
