I know, probably not... but I figured I'd ask. 

 

Long Island's not just developments & urban sprawl... there are actually some good places to fly !

 

 

This is where I fly...

Wayne, if I had access to a 'beaming device', we would've flown together all ready !

Looks to be ideal.  When I see the bag laying there I wonder what you flew after you shot the video.  You would get a kick out of some of my flight locations.  I seem to be specializing in parking lots lately.  As I sit here in the hollow on Sugar Street I see the maple tree motioning to me to come fly.  I long for some wide open spaces like your beach.  You are very fortunate.  I remember all the times I stood on beaches & did not have a kite to fly.  That won't be the case from now on.

It is pretty close to ideal, unless you're a sand-hater ! Me, I can't stand flying on grass... but to each their own, I suppose.

I fly on a "long island", in the middle of a rowing course but that doesn't really count.

Hey Rob... This 'Long Island'...

 

You would think an island that has over 3 million people living on it would have more than 1 person who flies...

I know which one you meant LOL, I've checked out where most of the regulars are from. If the missus want to do the US in a few years, I need to know where some flying friends are... East coast to west coast and the bits in between.
