Thank you for organizing this. It makes such a difference to be able to demo and compare different kites and boards at your local spot and in the same conditions. It would be great if you organized another similar event this season. One demo day at 3rd per season is not enough. Great job and thanks again!

thanks kitet! we are going to plan additional demos for this Spring including>

F-One @ Alameda
Cabrinha @ Alameda
Ozone @ Alameda
Naish @ Alameda & 3rd again (Nick is game to come down again to host one more!)
and hopefully Dan from North comes back too!!

We try to really give service to those that buy locally with us...and to be competitive on pricing so people can support their local shop. Thanks for the compliments and thanks to all of our customers that buy local :):) so we can continue to offer demos, lessons, rentals, and have fun running our school & retail shop :):) And we have all the 2011 kites IN STOCK so come on by if you want to either arrange a private demo or buy a new kite!

Top 10 Reasons to Support Your Local Shop
(hopefully Boardsports in the SF Bay Area)

Top 10 Reasons to Support Your Local Shop
(hopefully Boardsports in the SF Bay Area)
• Equipment Expertise & Service: Kiting and Windsurfing are complex sports from an equipment standpoint. We can help you with product knowledge , gear reviews, and local knowledge (what size kite/sail/board works best for each local spot). We will also show you how to set it up and rig it properly.
• Gear Demos: We demo equipment at all of our locations. This allows you to really know what you are getting and know how much you like it!
• Have Somewhere to Buy Accessories When You Need Them Most: When something breaks when you are out sailing or kiting, you can't buy a quick replacement online. If everyone shops online, the local shops go out of business and you have no where to go when the wind rocks, but you're missing a part. We will do our best to match online prices, so you get a good deal too!
• Instant Gratification: When you are psyched to buy gear, why wait to receive it? Buy from us so you can walk away with gear in hand.
• Buying Power Discounts: The more you buy from us, the more of a discount we can give you.
• Warranty Support: If you have any issues with your gear, we shop can help support your warranty. That saves you the trouble of dealing with shipping your gear off to some far away place, and waiting for it to be fixed.
• Safety Knowledge: Any local shop is a great resource for helping you to stay safe. Most kite shops will not let people even buy kite equipment without the customer having taken lessons. Your local shop knows the local conditions and can outfit you with the right safety gear (knife, strobe light, whistle, spare line, etc.). Do you know how to perform a self rescue in the middle of the Bay? Let us help keep you informed and outfitted for safety.
• Swap Meets: We host swap meets every season. This is a great way to buy inexpensive used gear. We usually have a special sale going on at the same time.
• Repair Services: We can help you with all of your gear repair needs. Support your local shop so you have somewhere to go to fix what breaks!
• Feel Good Supporting Businesses That You Like: Find a shop you like and support them. Buying online can be an impersonal experience. Getting to know your local shop owners and shop employees can not only help your equipment buying needs, you may make new friends. Supporting your local community just feels good!

Hmm... shall we follow this train of thought, maybe even try to get an investigative answer to this question. A good starting point would be Mrs. Jennifer L. Clark, Recreation Superintendent, Foster City Parks and Recreation Department at 650-286-3390.

I think next weekend looks good. Ha, almost got you there! How does "scheduling 12-18 months in advance" fancy you? Not for everybody? Indeed, not.
