Hi guys,

Anybody got any ideas? I'm on vacation and visiting friends out here, and we want to go out and fly, but we're not sure where to go. We'll have a 6-year old with a SLK and me with my stuff.

Oh, and I just took my first kite-surfing lesson today. AWESOME!! I'm so hooked!! I'm scrounging around to see if I can get scheduled to take the next one before I fly home. *grin*

Yeah, and by the by... 80F, 10-15 mph winds, and clear blue skies today. The weather is totally cooperating with me out here.....

You are in Barresi's backyard.

Looks like West Delta Park is his home field. They also suggest contacting Theresa at The Kite Shoppe to find other flyers.

See more info in Rev Forum link and also Google map link.

Thanks for the tips. Theresa is GREAT. If any of you guys come out here, I highly suggest looking her up. :)

I've never managed to meet Theresa in person, but I've heard nothing but good things about her.
