I think that may be me standing near the center, just before I started wrapping up my lines.

I am feeling sorry for the iQuad boys, going from KP one week to WCRC the next. What a shock to the system!


BTW, next year I am not going to save any vacation time and not go to this fest next year. I am happy to stay wet and cold in the PNW.....NOT!!!!! :lol:

It's 3:51pm, do you know where you obliviot is?

I just took a peek at the live cam only to see a bunch of revs flying!! Funnier still I whatch a minute and see a group of 4 people come wandering from under the camera.. they proceed to walk right into the flying area right after the kites do a low pass, then get between 2 flying groups and walk straight away from the water toward the boardwalk. Stand there a minut talking then walk straight back toward the water..

I applaud the fliers patience as I never saw the alkers heads move as if being called/yelled at. I know I would have been very frustrated for sure with a huge open beach they could have walked elsewhere on...Posted Image

That's why we call them obliviots - we have to do their thinking for them!!Posted Image

Sometimes they're oblivious, sometimes they're not. There were those that would get in the way (usually the surfers) on purpose, I thought. They didn't like us on their beach, and would go where they wanted to go just to show us it's their turf. More so on Monday when there wasn't any tape up to define the field, but early on Sunday there were people knocking down the tape and their supports on purpose.

On Friday, the some spring breakers were throwing a whistling nerf-like football, and intentionally trying to throw it into the kiters and lines of those of us flying at the side next to the pier where the camera is. The closer they got to us, the more the throwers down the beach would laugh.

Two weeks ago the city of Los Angeles made it law that nothing may be thrown on the beach except a volley ball or a beach ball. $350.00 fine. Lynn and I thought that was not right. After the experience that Jeff spoke of on Friday, and we had again late on Monday, we understand why it was necessary in L A, and would like to see the same law in Huntington Beach.

It's not just about kiting. Those people were running all over the beach, the other people, and young children. They have no respect for other folks or their property.

Not acceptable behavior.
Fly together! Share the joy, Share the fun
