Default Kiting Season Opener/Access/MOVIE NITE!!!



WE ARE HAVING a kiting season opener, access and movie nite! W this coming Tuesday in Ft. Lauderdale, FL! We will discuss preserving kiting access, launch specific problems, solutions, gear, tips, how to start, etc.. This is a good event not only for experienced riders but also for newer kiters and folks who want to get into the sport to learn how to go about it and to make connections. Instruction options will be discussed, riding areas, suitable conditions, we'll also touch on suitable wave riding areas closer to shore for conscientious kiters and a good deal more. It is also a chance to meet and talk with other area kiters, meet new riding buddies and the like.

Chapter One is an exciting new kiteboarding feature length movie which is grabbing interest all over. Here's a chance to see it with kiting friends.

Movie synopsis: "introduces viewers to the most exciting action sport on the planet; kiteboarding. It unites the legends, current champions
and future talents of the sport and is shot in breathtaking locations around the globe using state-of-the-art camera techniques. Chapter One will
let you experience the ultimate sense of freedom. "



It would be GREAT to have kiters in from all over South Florida, say from at least Hollywood to Boynton Beach. We're looking for experienced guys all the way to folks who want to learn to kite. We share a lot of riding areas, problems and potential solutions, so please plan on attending to learn how to help keep things flying at your launch and beyond. Refreshments will be served.

Some of the problems:

- RIDING TOO CLOSE TO SHORE, inside the buoys off lifeguarded beaches

- Two kiters on a downwinder from Pompano rode inside the swim zone buoys and created some serious problems a few days ago. In general recurrent problems with guys riding too close to shore/bathers and ignoring/disrespecting lifeguards. Guards are on duty until 7 pm by the way. Guys on downwinders riding inside the swim zones have caused problem elsewhere.
