Yes your right! Our family owns many condos in N Myrtle beach. Let me know the next time you visit, and I'll TRY to hook you up with a discount. I would love to catch up and can go anytime. I will be going this fall and winter. You could come down and visit. Have plenty of space. Lets keep in touch!

That sounds good. Won't be down there for the Fall, though, but will be back there in June of next year. We always reserve the next year at the townhouse that we stay at on Holly Drive.

There's a big kiteboarding scene down in Charleston and that's Don's playground, too. (Hopefully he'll be able to get out in the water next summer.) I've got Don's old Pulse 10m fresh back from a retuning from John at PowerZoneKite Sports. Hopefully by then I'll have a nice Speed3 to keep it company.

Can also bring my quiver down with me. Between the two of us, we'll have enough toys to keep us busy.

Sail and Ski Connection (located near the SkyWheel in Myrtle Beach) are a bunch of good guys. They only stock North gear and train with the North 2011 EVOs. I took lessons with Matt, but since he's back in college at Charleston College, I don't know if he's around on the weekends. Matt is a really good guy and has a lot of patience. There are a few other kiteboarders in Myrtle Beach. They mostly tend to hang out around Murrell's Inlet since the beaches in Myrtle Beach tend to be too crowded.

I'll definitely be giving you a heads up when I head back down there.

You ever make the drive up the Smith Mountain Lake? I'm up in the Shenandoah Valley and we're about 4 hours from Charlotte.

One thing I have learned for sure in this sport...
RESPECT RESPECT RESPECT the power of the kite.
I have had my Hydra 350 (3.5m, water relaunchable) lift me off the ground and I am 290 lbs. :dunno: .. what happened, good wife I guess.
I took lessons from the best and stuff still happens...
We all must work together to help each other, watch each other so our access at all kiteboarding sites gets maintained.
Have fun but do is safe and in RESPECT for others.
