Thanks Deiter!

You killed all the Kenney's ! You Bastards! :bigok:

rtz, there is a military base up the north end of the beach. Often they are holding exercises and close the top end of the beach. Not a big problem since you can go about 12 miles south to Seaside.
The fantastic thing about the beaches down there is that there is so much beach that everybody can do their thing! :cool:
If you want to see a wild site you should see the thousands upon thousands of people out clamming when it's on. It's the one time that the beach is so crowded ( at low tide ) that we must give over to others.

I am gutted about not getting out to any events this year. Life is slowly working it's way to my " new normal " .

Mood: non significant wind chaser

May have been the best Spring SOBB ever!
Great people, great food and great times, thank you all that were able to attend and we missed those that were unable to attend.

Thanks Big John for the 16m Vapor and the vid he took and the BBQ sauce you make is the best ever.

I especially want to thank the new kiters that adventure
out and attend our event, not knowing what to expect. I know you had a good time and I have developed some wonderful friendships with you. Thank you

I'm already looking forward to the Fall Event and hoping to see you all again and maybe more newbys and I really hope to see a few more of the Crew sometime soon.

Wow.
SOBB 2016
What a great place, a great time and a great group of people!!

As a first time in the buggy newbie I really appreciate all of the
consideration and help y'all gave me.
Now I'm hooked and eager to get back for more.
Thanks to all that helped make it happen!
Special mention to:
kiteboyza - for sharing all the photos and mentoring.
sand flea -for watching my back.
Eli and Jim -for rib-fests and local welcome.

Looking forward to more beach time.

Thank you to everyone. Me and my family all had a great time!

SandFlea: You da man! Thank you ever so much for letting me try your kites. For giving me the honor of watching you masterfully fly that big beautiful 16m Vapor! You are truly a master!

Deter: I can't begin to thank you enough for the help. The tips the pointers. For letting me fly your kites. You helped me progress more in a few minutes then I have all winter. I hope to see and fly with you again.

Patrick: Great to see you again! Looking like a pro!

Wind-dog was a pleasure meeting you and I hope to see you again in the fall

And thank you Eli for letting us watch you and that gorgeous R1 in action!

I was one of these new guys. I was happy to be accepted into a friendly group of people. Thank you all for giving me suggestions, inspiration and letting me try out various kites and other items.

It was difficult to return to work last week. The time seemed to drag on while i was thinking that others are still able to be camping at buggy camp and bugging on the beach in the sun.

I look forward to the fall meet up to see everyone again, put many more miles on the buggy and enjoy some wonderful potluck camping meals.

Thanks again and see you all in the future.

Thank you so much for all your help and good company Dieter! (Peter?) :D
(I want the chance to win my money back in the fall.)

I'm getting more and more comfortable in the buggy--and I love it. I'm a little sore. Good wind and weather so I stayed a couple more days and Vlad and I buggied the hell out of that beach. I think 12 hours on Monday.

Can't say enough about all the good company!
