If the winds are out of the se then it would be onshore out at slp. Any other direction east beach is where you need to be.

Im sorry but death to plovers. Seriously wow that first little symbol might be a problem. although they don't seem to fly away when I was on Padre. Now the seagulls do fly away from the kite.

Hey just noticed 2 bolts hold this sign on to its pole. They sign may vanish in time for the event then reappear as the event finishes.

I just realized that sign also says no dogs. So are we going to move the event next year to a place with less restrictions. I mean come on no camping no dogs and I bet the beach patrol runs us off next year.

P.S.
Well at least this sign is legitimate. I see a plover in the background.

Hope it does not turn out like here in Cali! Only the city beach is allowed, not the state beaches, unless you are hidden (keep kite low), or haul ass and quickly at pack up your kite and leave. good luck with the turf.

I was a little disappointed that no one showed up to the pre-event. We only had the local crew (jeremiah, treblehook, a new guy - didn't get his name , and myself). Wind was also lacking today. Had 50m lines on my 15m phantom and it was still falling out of the sky.

The only fun part was when Herb (treblehook) hooked up his parasail to his truck and took us for a ride. That was cool considering I have a fear of heights ...haha.

Btw.. we didn't see any plovers until we were about to left and ONE showed up right in the middle of our camp. I didn't have the deep fryer with me so that bird got to live one more day. :evil:
