To members of Extreme Kites

I am finalizing things so let me know.

Reply The Halloween Blast 2008 is on for this coming weekend! We have negotiated discount hotel rates at the Ocean Inn across the street from the kite shop. Just tell them you are staying for the kiteboarding event, and the price should be $69 versus $89 for the normal rate:
