Welcome aboard, sorry to hear the site is down. How have you folks been for wind on the west coast lately? It has been calm over here with a few unpredicted exceptions. Start the stronger cold fronts again!

Hey Rick. We are suffering as well. But we lost our forum to a hard drive crash and I think we are going to point our members to here for a while. I hope you won't mind the traffic.

I have had a few catastrophic hard drive crashes over the years. Never a good experience despite efforts to backup content.

Happy to helpout. Pending getting your site back online, I just started a sticky topic at the top of this forum for the Tampa Bay KiteMasters Race.

I won't be able to make it this weekend but hope it comes off anyway for all the riders.

Please do and if you can collect other images or put them in touch with me. I have some good shots from the morning of the last attempted start. It would be great to prepare an article or two about the downwinder. Full credit will be given for all photos used of course.



You folks really have a nice launch there in Desoto. Do you ever ride down to and around Egmont Key? The southeastern tip looks like it would go off in W to S to N winds. Having almost sunk an antique wooden sunfish in the middle of the channel there a coons age ago, a chase boat would make sense for this I think.

Jayson and Brian have talked about doing a down winder from Indian Rocks Beach to Egmont Key. But thats a lot of open ocean for non seasoned riders to try to attempt. It would a nice place to ride as long as you have a way back to Ft Desoto. We will need to try it soon and I will be sure to post it when it happens.

Looks like the seabreeze is starting to form.
Forecast is strong through 4 pm.
