Re: Why don't all kiters read Kiteforum?

I like this forum for generic worldwide information. I know it takes a lot of time to manage a forum like this. Kiteforum is a general forum. I thought it would be nice to have a section for local KBs like perhaps OBX, or DELMARVA. I dunno, There ae still a lot of folks on here!

There were eople with tents and kids and people in the water right where I was kiting and had to dodge people....I wish they would appropriate part of that beach for wind sports South of the lot for 200yrds...Would that be too much to ask? The new parking lot at Kite Point is both ...
