Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
The season will be coming up soon and I'm sure many of us have good used gear to pass on and many will be interested in picking up some of that gear as they add to their quivers or get into the sport.
Should we try to organize a swap meet ourselves rather than wait to see if any of the local shops will or will not organize one?
What thinks you all?
I say we do it at the Crown, Alameda. It would also be a good way to promote the web site. Not so damn early this time though. Like 10 am works for me. Alameda is perfect because they have grass where you can lay out your gear and people can ask about lessons. Also there are always tons of people driving by that will come over and see whats up.
We will probably shoot for one in the East Bay and leave the Crissy one to Boardsports to organize, especially if their sole location will be in the city. I would think early March would be good, possibly earlier, but I'd like to hear everyone else's input....
A swap meet sounds like an awesome idea. People are always looking to get some gear sold and also to find good deals. I know a number of people who want to get into the sport and are asking if there ever are any swap meets. March sounds like a good time becasue hopefully the wind will be going off by then!
D, You must have been getting a lot of work done lately!
No, Jeff isn't really into gettnig a swap meet going. He doesn't have the space at the shop and he can't have it under his organization at the park on account of the Boardsports concession. EBRPD doesn't let him get away with much, so I'm not. I tried to talk into getting one going last year and he wasn't too enthused about it.
We can just have a swap meet. I don't think you need a permit for that. Boardsports cvan't really say anything, can they?
Just beware!!! Boardsports is very picky with anything that happens on that public beach. Last year I was told you couldn't even teach your friends at Alameda. I think they pissed on the whole beach and now it's theirs. Ask Jeff what happens if you get cought.
