Re: Serious accident at Mirlo Beach yesterday

Apparently it was a heart attack on the beach that a kiter suffered, not kite related.
Info is from some guys staying in the old Nevin's Tuition house right across the street from the beach where the incident took place.

NOT really a kiting accident.

I hope the guy made it.

Not much happening with the new bridge for the last two weeks....which is good!
Looks like more work has been done at the northern end than the southern one at this point.

See my post about the accident here yesterday.......

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

Just received this picture this morning from a friend staying in Mirlo Beach.
He said the work seemed pretty slow as far as setting the actual pilings.

But as you can see, they are in the Sound now, BUMMER!
It was great while it lasted....

Re: Hatteras to get another new bridge ... this one sucks.

Any updates from the locals on this?
The bridge, not the misguided comments from an unnamed poster.

Re: Make your own Splitboard

Re: Concave or Flat for Lakes

For Ontario's fresh water lakes with chop = Mako
Been riding Lake O for 15 years, always on a Mako. I've tried other boards, but always go back to the Mako.

Give Billy from Kite Passion a call, he can set you up.
