So...I missed out on IBX. Thank god for SOBB!! Looking forward to seeing friends and ride sunset beach. Razor clams at buggy camp! Sand Flea? Also would like to suggest another swap meet? Had some good swapping going on last year. I think some people got some good deals on some sweet gear.
I'm also hoping I might get an opportunity to demo a few select models of kites. If they manage to make there way to SOBB. I know most people are pretty generous with their kites. I for one am willing to let anyone fly anything in my arsenal. In particular I'm hoping to demo a FS Peak, and/or one of the newer Ozone foils. Such as an Access, Frenzy, Summit. Preferably with the re-ride system. If you plan on being at SOBB and you have one of these you might be willing to demo please let me know. Maybe we can workout a demo or even a demo swap.

Rick: you can ride any of my buggy's. The Croozer, the Hardcore. Which ever one I'm not in you're welcome to. You're also welcome to any kite I'm not flying at the time haha. I gotta find some material for my number plates though. I gotta sport the NAPKA numbers. Any ideas?

All sorts of things make this one tough too attend.

Hey Eric. I have not. I think I have a plan. But I have yet to execute said plan. Hoping to have it worked out before SOBB. Are you going to make it to SOBB?

Trying my very best to make this happen!
It has been insane here at home since IBX, and I need a break.
Joey will be in school:sniff:
Roberta has agreed to come tho;)
Don't know dates or accommodation or anything yet, but I've got tons of time to figure out the details:lol:
Too many lonely kites and buggies at home to miss SOBB, so save me some beach.

I'm almost completely healed* and definitely planning to be there. :D

*A couple of weeks ago a few of us got together on sunset beach. The wind had picked up and I was putting away a kite to put up a smaller one. Wind_dog offered to help me land the kite but I didn't want to trouble him (big mistake) and ended up getting it tangled. While I was untangling it, a lookee-loo ran over the lines and they somehow got hooked on his car. I nearly got the end of my left middle finger torn off. Fortunately there were some good friends there and Sand flea drove me to the hospital in Seaside--with an escort from Sunset_jim's bright red Mustang! I was sure the end of my finger was lopped off but it wasn't that bad. Seven stitches later and we were back on the beach joking about it; for example, giving someone the finger could have been an issue with "Stubby". :-)
