Fort Macon is a great place to fly, it's right down on Atlantic Beach in N.C. There isnt a great deal of room but the wind goes over the water often and I get to practice hovering over the water. It gives me some great pictures and it lets me work on my skills cause you hover a lot better when you don't want to go in the water after you kite. lol.

Hey Louie,

I was there this past Sunday for the club fly. No one showed up to fly much. I guess the 16 mph winds and 36 degrees scared too many folks off. But I sure had fun with my Sonic Vented and Rev 1.5 vented. Flew for about an hour and a half before I decided it was a little too cool.

I'll be back in April. Maybe see you then.

Later, Doug

I haven't been out there much recently, but sad to say I won't be able to catch you out there in april because I am leaving from Iraq the first week of that month. Too bad you weren't going to be out there this weekend cause I'll be out there early sunday morning and I'll be out there all day.

33834_494237097420_507337420_5914522_7911490_n.jpg So now that I am flying regularly, does anyone else go out to Fort Macon and fly? I was there today but sadly I was the only ones flying a Rev and there was a couple people out there with was single line (boring) and then a dual line stack but that was about it!! So let me know if your in the area and I will bust out the 120' lines and we can fly together but till then its just me and my music!!

Hi Louie,
Fort Macon is a great place to fly! I flew with you once several years ago when you were just getting into the Revs good.

Stop by the kite shop and ask Don, Jeri or Bret to hook you up with some of the "local" fliers. There are several down there that I know would fly with you. One I can think of comes down each Thursday weather permitting. And of course the regular Sunday morning fly.

I'd love to fly with you but I'm in the same boat as Doug (CLT)I won't be able to get back down there until April.

Oh that Iraq post is from 2008 lol. I am not deploying again till this November lol. Bazzer has plenty of time to sew my Rev. Actually I am coming out to San Diego for the month of March to fly our Harriers at Miramar. It will be my first time in San Diego and I think that we will have weekends off so I am going to bring my kite bag with me and try and get some flying done out there.

I'll be there tomorrow. Maybe a little hungover because I am celebrating my birthday tonight but I will be there and so will my wife and friend. They are new to flying but the will enjoy seeing other Rev Flyers.
