We get so little wind here that if you show up at the beach when it's windy 80% of the time there's other kiters there and it's always the same people so after a while they become friends. And after a few years you travel around the world with them! Kiting is like that you need help from the others and you want them to keep an eye on you when you're out! They expect the same from you so it builds friendship to watch each others back in extreme weather!

They're on the water on on the beach rigging up, go talk to them. I met all my kiting friends on the beach.

If you drive around the beaches when there is wind you can probably find the kite spots by looking for the giant banners we fly about 20 meters up in the air.

Just show up where the kiters are and say hi.
