Hi Guys,

Been lurking for a while and thought I best intro myself and say congrats for creating such a neat site. I live on the NE corner of Scotland and after surfing for 15 years took up kitsurfing a litle over 2 years ago. After learning to ride on the obligatory tea tray I soon discovered the joys of unstrapped surfing with the kite. So, whilst all my surfing buddies are whinging about onshore and crosshore much I'm out there having a blast :D

Just started a blog to keep folks updated on my kiting and surfing antics. Check it out at http://hangtimefive7.blogspot.com/

Cheers
George

Hi Lonny,

Thanks for the welcome. I'll do my best to keep the pics coming from Scotland. Haven't been kiting in your neck of the woods but have surfed at Melbourne Beach, Sebastian etc and did see a few guys out on kites at Cocoa. Only ever passed thru Miami on the way to the Keys. Keep up the good work.

Cool! Well, be sure to shoot me a message if you come through again. We can catch a skim session the next time you are in town! One of these days I am going to make it to the UK.
