Thanks to everyone who contributed their articles during the contest! Remember, you don't have to have a contest to contribute your articles, you can do it anytime and they are appreciated by everyone.

A big thanks to everyone who participated and a huge thanks to our sponsors who were all very generous to put up the prizes! More info about the sponsors of the contest can be viewed here.

To determine the winners, a Random File Picker was used which can be viewed (and used) here: http://www.bayareakiteboarding.com/rand ... picker.php. Text files with the initials of the entrants were uploaded and the script was run. If duplicate entrants were drawn, the duplicate was disregarded and then next entrant picked resulting in only one prize per entrant. The winners are listed below as drawn.

I think I gave you a launch at Crissy a few Saturdays ago when everyone went. If you were on the Naish boxers then I think that was you. If you kited Crissy that day then Wadell will be a piece of cake. I consider Crissy much more advanced and dangerous as compared to Wadell. Wadell is a lot like Alameda but with Waves. Super fun!! We should all head down there when the wind is in forcast!

Drove by Waddell yesterday and the waves were sweet!
Some serious rights in the contest area.
The sand has moved around quite a bit.
Just need wind.
Remain Calm. The season is soon upon us.

hey you guys
Wedell is like alameda with good room all around. thats it.
THE water is very diffrent!
like hana said watch frist, do not RUN AND JUMP out there
look at the wave .
it is a force to deal with.
try to get an idel of the timeing of it watch to see if its gonna jack(close out all the way down the line ,not good).
go and watch for a bit with both eyes open.
dont be in a rush to kite becouse you havent for a bit.
ill say it again that wave is a FORCE to deal with
