It was in 2010 that kiting was banned at Hobie Beach, FL, but seriously, just a reminder to stay out of swim areas and away from non-kiters in general.

This is pretty much what Montrose looked like back when we lost access.

Everyone promised to do better next time...until there was no next time.

....there was the day the Lifeguard Perch got knocked down.
....the day the kite ended up on the Hobbie Mast.
....the day a kiteboarder got lofted, smacked the wet sand, then bounced off the bottom of a lifeguard boat, and landed in the dry sand.
....the day a kiteboarder ran right over the bow of a kayak.


:oops:
