We will inspect and test gear including safetys on land at the park next to our shop, then we suggest kiters do a body drag and then self rescue from our 12th Street launch into the 9th street cove / beach.

If you have different model kites and bars in your quiver, bring them.

I think there is a large % of kiters that do not fully understand safety systems and self rescues let alone tuning of their kite and how adjustments work.

So many people are getting the fast track into kiting, only a short time is focused on the safety components.

Look forward to more safety. It can only help everyone.
