SPI End of March

Post by WaWaZat » Tue Feb 15, 2011 10:52 am

Thinking of taking a trip to SPI the end of March. Would anyone be on board for that? Those that don't know... South Padre Island is a premier kiting spot. There's even a dedicated windsurf/kite beach. Great for beginners and those looking to hone board skills as well. The sound is miles & miles of shallow water. Check it out; http://www.southpadreislandkiteboarding ... hotos.html

At this point I've been planning on driving down there.. should be arriving Apr. 1 or 2 and at this point am planning on spending about two weeks down there.. if anyone is planning on going down there at that time I wouldn't mind splitting the driving and gas to get down and back.. I am also willing to drive gear down there.. I am thinking at this point $15 per kite each way boards under 140cm free.. but just putting it out there.. if u want to go down there n split the gas ur gear goes for free of course..

text or email me if u want to go.. jdews4@gmail

That is perfect timing, right when I was hoping to get out of town for a week of Kiting. I hadn't settled on a destination but I don't think I could drive down to SPI. I would be interested in flying down, meeting up with people from the area for an early season kick-off. PM me with some more thoughts on timing, travel and accomidations. Dewsy, thats very cool of you to offer Ferrying services.

If for some reason you switch it to end of April you could count me in.

Cool, if we can make it work we would just go down middle of March and stay a month or two.

Alright, my crew can't make up our minds whether to go in March or May.......... only one solution........ go both times! :D

We're driving the Woody Wind Wagon down March 18th-27th, then again May 13th-22nd. Anyone else thinkin' of going during those times?!
