Can we do something special for AJ?


As we know, the body of Charles "Action" Jackson was recovered on September 21, 2011 after a terrible kitesurfing mishap on Hatteras Island. Though I rarely saw the man personally, he was a shining specimen of a human being and a committed kiter to boot. His contributions to the sport and to this forum are innumerable; being one of the longest-standing members of the board, he has called PKF his home for almost 10 years. He has helped so many before my arrival here, and when I did join in, he helped me too.

I just thought maybe it would be proper to write a few kind words on his profile. A simple Rest In Peace, because I feel that there are many out there who miss him. I'm not exactly sure what to put, as I don't feel that I am the proper person to honor his life in that way. Feedback please, especially from the admin.

Thank you.

He did get the full page treatment on the last page of THE KITEBOARDER MAGAZINE vol 8 #5.

I keep it on my desk.

I wasn't aware of that. What a nice thing for them to do. Does that invalidate my post?

I'm sure PKF is just busy - they'll see this and I think would do just what you suggested....seems appropriate to me.

I'm happy to do it. Is that a concensous: "Rest in peace"?

It catches me off guard when I'm reading an old thread and come across a post of his. Maybe we try the "Rest in Peace" for awhile and possibly something even better comes up later.

We had a kite release at WBB in rememberance of A.J. It was a bio-degradable kite that we signed then released out to the ocean. It went on for a very long time. Several people there knew and flew with A.J. at some point in their kiting years.

This would be a nice way to pay tribute to him here on PKF

RIP AJ...never got the chance to visit him down in texas when he lived there. I always envisioned an incredible time flying with him on the beach. Always enjoyed his company at Ivanpah. He was truly a selfless dude. Much Love!!!
