Yeah, there wasn't much water at EB yesterday but regardless I am sticking to it today and will probably try and time the wind pickup if it isn't already honking out there to avoid a repeat from yesterday on my Machine. My 15M Fuel should do the trick once it picks up or even my 11M GTO if it REALLY gets going...

The Skyway is not a good place to learn(or teach),especially the west side of the North rest area (aka the cornhole or backside) I have seen inexperienced pilots get worked there several times recently.Kite eating trees and man- eating men are 2 other reasons to stay away....
On the East side, the beach looks big and inviting to set up a kite and launch, but the reality is, that there's not much room for the "walk of shame". Its too easy to get blown downwind and run out of beach. There are big nasty rocks down there waiting to eat a kite or to kill you.
There has already been a kite cross the road in the past. I would imagine that if it happens again, we will not be riding there anymore.
With the rapid influx of newbies around here, we ALL need to work extra hard to keep things as safe as possible.
