Default p.s.

Rumor has it that they left the beach so fast to go home and clean the kids shorts out...

Shucks...I had been kiting there that day from 11am onward. I saw it all building, around 3pm it got too much for my 12m and my flightdeck so I came in.

I packed my stuff up and was leaving around 4pm when I saw that kid walking with his board. I knew I should have stayed. I left shaking my head. Thought he had learned.

What type of parents are they! That's child endangerment right there. I'm gonna call it right now, it's gonna take a serious injury for this kid to learn anything. He might get by for years and years without incident, but he'll still have not really learned anything.

The picture attached at about 3:30pm. Just before it opened up.

Was out at SS yesterday with my wife. Just me and only one other guy (John I think) from 11a to 3pm. Fantastic wind. Too choppy for my Flightdeck (only board). Still fun though.

Never been up there before. That looks like a pretty nice launch. Not what I had pictured in my head. Don't worry, too far of a drive to come crowd you.

I think I'll talk to him or his parents the next time I see him out there. Don't know if it will do any good, but at least if he gets injured or killed or hurts someone else, it won't be on my conscience.

I have talked to him and his dad just about regular ish, such as launching towards the water, wearing a safety leash, and explained how the safety leash is the single most important part of the safety system, besides the common sense to actually wear a leash.

I wish you luck, we should not give up because he is not going away and like you I don't want to see anyone get hurt or lose our access at sunset.
