Kite in water without rider At 3rd today

Postby nathaniel_e » Sun Sep 22, 2013 9:21 pm

Someone came up to me as I was packing my kite telling me that he saw a kite and board in the water without a sign of a rider. The guy told me that he was calling 911. Any update on this situation?

Yes I actually towed the kiter in from way out. His kite got into death loop and he had to cut it loose. I told him when we were in to call the coat guard right away which he did. They are aware that there is a kite without a kiter attached to it. I would think 911 will get in touch with CG?

Damm, 3rd ave is becoming more and more dangerous as wind season dwindling to an end. I think I will go to Alameda instead :roll:
