I don't think Georgia has required masks outdoors for a long time (if they ever did.)

Hi all, Jack here... My son Kyle and I are planing on joining in at the Jibe this year. Fairly new to the sport looking forward to more buggy time, and meeting all you good folks. And seeing the folks I know from Wildwood.

Hope it works out Pokite. I went 9-10 years not being able to attend and now I am just able to make it. I tidied up the kite closet this weekend and will check buggy parts and gear this weekend. Wexler is hoping to fly in for a few days so when he's not there, I'll have a tandem setup. Maybe I finally get my wife to go down the beach with me?

Prolly not on the beach as even JIA agrees that our event is uniquely qualified to maintain social distancing. They are good at keeping the whale snot out of the teeth, though.

Looks like many of us will be fully vaxxed, but we should bring masks for social and public interactions, and most responsible businesses are requiring them.

The governors can yank my downtube but I'm not hanging up my mask until the CDC and Uncle Anthony say that the coast is clear.

We arrived yesterday evening. Staying at our usual place through JIBE (it's damn nice being retired!)
Got to assemble the equipment, and yes Angus, that stimulus check brought a Quatro Wind Drifter and Slingshot Hover Glide foil into the quiver! I got the ozone WASP last year for kite skiing. I'm hoping Randy will have words of wisdom and his
foil for words of advice.
The beach looks great as always. The tides are about what they will be for JIBE and they should be great!
Be missing you Pokite, please send the cookies if you can't make it yourself! Will Frank be coming?

We can tell Elizabeth that there has been a chemical spill on the beach and we need her expertise. The Golden Ray is still in the harbor channel being cut up, so it's plausible!

We'll be arriving on saint Simons on Saturday 5/1 and staying there both weeks. I'll be coming to JIBE at least 2 or 3 days. Hoping to do some buggying on SSI as well... love those sunset sessions on East Beach!

There has been a great upgrade of the beach access at the old commercial center. Now the Oceanview Beach Park.
The former steps are now a ramp the width of the one at Great Dunes. Lots of parking and the beach to the south, is vacant
and abuts Kite Beach. "This is where your Parking Fee Money goes"
The beaches are quite flat right now. Few and shallow tide pools to be had for the quick cooling dip.

You know you want to come and ride!

That's exciting that the beach is flat and smooth again. It will be nice to let it fly down the beach.

Me too. If it wasn't for soliver I probably never would have gotten into kite buggy because he found the spots locally to ride and met up with me when I was just getting started to show me how it all worked and how much fun it was. Good luck.

Good thing it wasn't yesterday Angus, I saw part of the thread on Friend of Jekyll Isl. where the first post was: "Is anyone hearing about a sniper at the I-95 overpass and exit 29 in JI. Police everywhere etc...?"
and one of the replies was: "Swat team sniper. Crazy naked guy near truck stop"

Missing all the fun again.... have a good JIBE

It looks like nice wind today, I've been watching on the web cam to see someone fly by
Also see posts that the Golden Ray salvage is on fire today and a lot of smoke between Jekyll and St Simons!

I can see a couple of kites top the far right 0 south end of the web cam field of view but whoever is bugging keeps stopping and turning before coming down by the holiday Inn for the web cams

Had to leave Friday AM, but it was great to be back on the beaches, and to see friends old and new!! Thanks to Angus for making it all happen.

BTW - did anyone see the fire from the capsized ship? Made the 6pm news.

Looks like we are some of the last around..(came in late).along with Philip and family.
Despite howling wind.....it has been a pleasure meeting and seeing you all again.... Most of all riding :)
Thanks Errol for hooking Rebecca up with some tandem fun. She was down with such strong wind... and you made her smile and the trip worth while.
Hoping for better wind today and tomorrow, but smiles either way!
Until our paths cross again.
