Alameda 2017 buddy system group

Post by alexglebov » Thu Jun 15, 2017 2:53 pm

Hi fellow beginner kiters! Let's organize a buddy system group. Please reply on this thread or PM me if you are interested. Idea is to coordinate, set up meeting times at Alameda, meet each other and go out kiting two at a time, so we can help each other. I am currently learning to edge, so I can stay upwind.

Hi there Alex, thanks for your reply on my post. You can count me in for the buddy system group! Let me know what I can do to help get this started :-)
I am also trying to get better at riding upwind...

The forecast for Alameda this weekend is very light, so I am going to check out Bodega Bay with John this Saturday. PM me if anyone wants to join.
Our group already has four potential members. I think we can exchange our phone numbers and coordinate our next session at Alameda (when there will be wind hopefully). We can post numbers here, or PM each other. My cell: 408-910-8117.

Hi Everyone,
Having a buddy group is a great idea. I've been kiting for a couple of years in the Baltic and North Sea of Germany, but I am new to the Bay Area. So it would be great to initiate a group of people who are interested in discovering the kite spots in the bay area together, car pooling and watching out for each other when on the water.
PM me when you are interested.

Lars

Hey hey!

I'm relatively new to the sport -- still working on staying upwind.

I'd be down for this too. Let me know -- happy to meet up and kite.

Maybe we could create a Whatsapp group to coordinate future trips? Happy to take that initiative if everyone posts their number.

My cell is 408-234-1629.

Hi guys,

I've created a WhatsApp group. Here is the link if you want for those who want to join and haven't posted their numbers yet:
https://chat.whatsapp.com/CrHAhRwzoZx0RUTvvDnln7

@Nosediver/Lars: I'm not able to add you to the group for some reason. Maybe it will work through the link?

Have a nice session for those kiting today :-)
