killer we will be there with tons of S. Fla. riders. Are there any options for NE wind like we did in the bay a few times? It did give a pretty good chance of getting the event off. Although this year we are getting quite a few NW wind days. Also note the the guys at SW FL kiteboarding are keeping series points and will surely count this event. Thanks again. I'm looking forward to it.

Looks like a busy weekend from the calendar: http://fksa.org/calendar.php

Too bad as February and the rest of March have no scheduled events listed!

Seems to me that the priority for SAT the 13th should be the race if there is wind and the SUP stuff if there is no wind. Just my thoughts.

Default Good point

Of course we will kite if there is favorable wind on the 13th for the event. The SUP race will go on either way as I have been running a stand up series with many stand up racers not being avid kiteboarders. Either way we are covered and can expect a great weekend!

I know its a week out, but Accuweather is showing a front coming through next weekend for the race with NW conditions anywhere from 20-30+......Fingers are crossed. Might we get lucky 2 years in a row with a pre-race party event followed by a race the next day like last year???????

One thing is certain, we have had a hell of alot of fronts this year with lots of north and NW in it. And the fronts have been pretty strong.....so I'm thinking chances are good this race might happen.

Can I get a whooohooooooo!!!!!!!

wow, just got back to town. I can't believe that I didn't miss the east coast down wind race. it's been a NW year, lucky for you guys.

it does look pretty good for the tampa event this coming weekend. do you have pretty good interest? i think Damo will be in the DR this week for the Cab shoot, but we will bring the miami crew for the event. i sure hate the goofy thing though! i guess it's not so bad if the wind holds as predicted at wnw as it will be more of a reach.

fingers are crossed. see you there.
