Local riding spots with wind roses superimposed

Ever wondering if 56 NE is good for riding on IOP.  Or if NW winds work in the harbor?  I dropped compass roses on top of local beaches using a Google Maps feature a few years ago, see attached PDF.  Also in .jpg form is the sullivan's island version.  The PDF has for folly, up north, the harbor, further south, etc.

Welcome to 2015

So... life gets in the way and then one day you look up and notice you have not updated a website in 4 years!

Here is my annual (except for last 3 years) warning!  

Spring is here,  bathers and small children on the beach.  Especially at Sullivan's 28.5.  Don't be the one that gets kiteboarding banned.  Keep your gear in small piles,  Be polite, smile, answer questions, say hello.   

STAY CLEAR OF SWIMMERS IN THE WATER.    We know that you know what you are doing, but they don't.  Mother's protect their young.  Be polite, be safe, keep clear and have fun!

Flyers have arrived

Bright yellow tyvec, put one on your harness!    Help keep kiteboarding alive on Sullivans and IOP!

If you want a stack so you can 'tag' people on the beach let me know

Flyers ordered and on the way

I'll be handing them out to stores and interested kiting individuals, please take the time to take a stack and hand them out to persons on the beach who look like they could use a refresher on the rules.

Don't be 'The one'

Don't be the one that
gets kiting banned!

Stay away from people, be extra polite to everyone, wait a few minutes for that slow swimming person to clear the area, move down a bit if kids are in the water.

Use some common sense and remember that the local politicians could very quickly and easily turn against our relatively small group of avid and responsible kiters due to one accident or  irresponsible person. 

Make it YOUR job to advise other new or out of town kiters.

Spring around the corner, working on safety flyers

posted Jan 26, 2010, 2:39 PM by Thomas DeMille

With spring and summer around the corner we are intensifying our efforts to print up a safety flyer and put them into distribution points with key kiters and shops, and at town hall.

This is based on our conversations last season with Andy Benke, town administrator, after some close calls and complaints brought us close to being put in front of the town selectman.

This year we are going to really concentrate on COMMUNICATION, with all local kiters.
