Promoting kiteboarding in Charleston SC
Started by StaleFish in Kite Jul 23, 2011.
Hi Chucktown kiters,
I'll be coming with my family to Folly Beach soon (7/13-7/17), and I'm looking to do some kiteboarding. I am reasonably athletic and an experienced sailor but have never kited before. Do you have anyone you would recommend who offers lessons?
Hey guys. If your going to be in Hatteras next weekend come check out the Kiteboarding Open at Kitty Hawk kites. There will be levels of competition for intermediate to advanced riders and all the 2013 gear from Cabrinha to demo. It should be pretty cool provided there is wind.
It will run Friday through Sunday weather permitting with the riders meeting starting at 10am Friday morning.
Events: Weather Permitting/Dependent: Freestyle, & Freeride (Specific freeride event…Continue

Good news! We have gotten enough support to have the 28.5 station install!! We are ~3 people short of funding the Folly Pier. We have moved forward to get approval on Folly Pier ahead of time through CCPRD (Chas County Parks and Rec Dept.), and are in multiple discussions with Sullivan's Island Town Administrator, Andy Benke, about that install on the Warning sign at 27th. Seems installing on the beach may cross "deed restriction" guidelines set forth by homeowners vista covenants, whom are…Continue

Laugh at me if you want, but I miss my Picklefork, which was lost at sea, at the onset of days of days of offshore wind on Hilton Head. Reward offered! If found, please call Greg at 843-816-4404, or write firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Kite was stolen from my car at the Wild Dunes resort after I valet parked my car at the Boardwalk Inn 6/30/11 - 7/1/11. 2011 Cabrinha Crossbow 16m Kite Red/Black color 004 with bar, lines, pump, bag, Kestrel wind meter light blue, grey shoe strings for caliber sync footstraps. Kite was flown twice it's in new condition.
If anyone has any information on this kite please contact me.
Heading for Mt. Pleasant for a week on 5/25. Anyone wanna point me in the right direction? I will have a kite partner and a vehicle for the week. Where should we head? Last time I was there I stayed at breach inlet and didnt explore because I had no vehicle. Open to driving anywhere around to find good places to ride. I imagine it will be busy during Memorial day weekend, any suggestions on a less busy place to kite?

Yeah, I got a line tangle on a back loop, and couldn't get back to my board. It was last seen on the left side of the sandbar, moving out to sea. It's a 2010 Mako 140, blue, white and orange, my name isn't on it, but I don't know of anyone else riding that board around here.
Anyways, if anyone finds it, I'll buy ya a beer or give a reward or something.
