Jekyll Island Camp and Kite... IT'S ON!


We are planning a camping trip for an extended first weekend of October on Jekyll Island for the sole purpose of tearing up the beach with Kites, buggies, and ATB's... WHOOT!

Saturday Oct. 6 through Tuesday Oct. 9 forum member knkmanthey (Kevin) and I will be camping out in the JI campground, and hitting kite beach during low tides for kiting and riding. We'll be headed down from metro Atlanta and get on the island late Saturday, so we'll be on the beach as much as possible Sunday and Monday (and maybe a little Tuesday).

Tide charts dictate that the low tides will mostly be in the mid to late afternoon.

So come join in if you can!!!

And FYI so you can witness the coolness,... our official kitemobile for this adventure will be my father-in-law's 1978 Ford Ranger Lariat with the 10' high camper shell on the back for loads of gear and likely unnecessary camping equipment :lol:



12 mpg!!! how's that for fuel efficiency?!?!

PS. Sorry Tridude for hijacking your Jekyll Island attention :smilegrin:

EDIT*** Check the bottom regarding the tides

Tri,

We probably won't be getting onto the island until late Saturday, (morning obligations...) but we won't be leaving the island 'til Tuesday so there's all day Sunday and Monday,... and we'll be camping on the north end of the Island in tents,... hence the title "Camp and Kite" :smilegrin:

Hey Don,

You don't have to camp just cuz we are, I was just letting you know that is where we will be,... It'd be great just to see you on the beach there. No prob to stay in a hotel,... don't push yourself if there's no need.

All the data says the additional education will endow you with greater earning power with which you can buy more kite gear.

No worries Phillip, and thanks for the U2U regarding the tides.

So I made a mistake on the Tides guys. Originally I had planned this trip down to JI the weekend before based on the fact that my wife and kids are taking a trip with my in-laws. When I checked the tide chart for that weekend it looked good,... but then I realized I had the dates wrong and changed the trip dates forgetting to check the tide charts... poop.

I can't change the trip dates but surely we can ride the beach in the morning as the tide is coming in.

I'm sorry :(

thoughts anyone?

So the date is less than 2 weeks out and here's the situation...

As you may have read above, I made a mistake about the tides and cannot change the dates so Kevin and I will still be headed down intending to ride the beach in the morning and possibly in the evening. Hopefully the sun won't be setting until 7:30 or 8pm still. :thumbup:

It looks like the low tide Saturday is 8:30am, but high tide isn't until around 2:30pm, and the same with Monday only an hour later,.... that seems to me like it will provide some ride time.

tide chart linky: http://www.toptides.com/GA/2012/october/Jekyll_Island_Marina...

I hope anyone who was interested will still be willing to come along in spite of less than favorable tides.

Please let me know what y'all think if you are still interested in coming or not.

Gracias :smilegrin:

If the wind is nicely aligned I have no issue flying within 2 hours either side of the high. YMMV. It requires more skills and experience (or perfect wind) to work in such narrowness, but it can be done and it can be fun.

Look for tides at Jekyll Point or St. Simons Lighthouse. Jekyll Marina is on the Intracoastal Waterway on the other side of the island and will lag behind.

High tide on Saturday the 6th is 1:12 pm so the beach will be usable after about 3:00pm. Plenty o' time!

that means Sunday AM will be great providing the winds are OK. We just need the Bermuda High to set up off the Carolinas as is still common for this time of year. In such a case we will not have to count on the afternoon seabreeze in order to get easterlies

SWEET! Then it looks like we'll have plenty of time to ride the beach early Sunday until noon, then later in the afternoon then again about the same on Monday. Awesome-sauce!!!! :singing:

Kevin is coaching his son's football team in a game on Saturday morning so we probably won't leave Atlanta until about 1 or 2pm which puts us on the island late Saturday evening.... enough time to set up camp, light a fire and chill 'til its time to sleep.

The tides are not optimal, but we can make it work,... Low tides are around 8 and 9am Sunday and Monday respectively, then again later in the evenings.

According to Angus (see above), the beach is useable up to 2 hrs before high tide, then again 2 hrs after,....Just read through the thread above.

Not sure yet about the wind... We'll have to see.

As of right now the preliminary forecasts are for great weather both days. Sunday's wind looks like it may not be directionally perfect nor very strong, but Monday is looking really good... it is still really early so all subject to change,... WE SHALL SEE... the STOKE is approaching

As Angus told me forecasts this early are very subject to change, but as of what the forecast says right now, Sunday's wind looks meek and shifty, and Monday looks like north easterlies with great wind speeds... we shall see!!!

camp & kite


At this time I'm in. Drive down Friday night. Going to try to make it a long weekend and hit the beach Sat.. We're not sure about camping yet, Betty Jo is a camping woose. Girls....

Not going to stay at MicroTel this time, the beds are worn out and suck. Took me 3 rooms to find something that was sleep-able. Thank you Mr. Patel!

The Days Inn on the island is just $10 a night more but really only $5 a night because you don't have to pay the 5 bucks to get on the beach but one time.

days inn on the beach, deluxe multiple stays there. its a good spot. i thought it was cheap. great view. and you are RIGHT WHERE YOU WANT TO BE. in and out no drive , pool, HOT TUB! hampton inn is good spot the access is through the dune and definitely not buggy friendly with the stairs and crap, but very nice, ton of weddings go through there and always booked ,seemingly, but the the drive to great dune park is easy, like 1-2minutes and the route to go with bugs.

You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore, ...and also a boat with no holes in it.

Just checked the NOAA forecast for the coming fun,...

Saturday and Sunday look fair, mostly N and NE winds in the 6 to 7mph range, but Monday looks like GREAT wind mostly N and NE from 10 to 14mph,... looks like lots of downwind down the beach runs!!!!

Hey gang, this is the first I have heard of this. Let me know more if you can. I try to keep data on hotel properties in the area and if they are not up to snuff, i will not recommend them. I get a lot of kite peeps traveling through the are a and want to be current with recommendations.

Hey Angus,... It looks like the NOAA forecast is mostly out of the N and NE, is it do-able to ride the North end of the island (past driftwood beach of course) for this presentation, or is that too hard to get to with gear?

Just curious since kite beach really needs a E, ESE for good on-shore winds...

thoughts?

Hey Davis,... how long you gonna stay, leaving Sunday or Monday,... looks like the real good stuff is coming Monday.
