Back when we lived in Gulfport, MS I was actually kiting a fair bit. The kids were much younger and they always took shelter from the wind under the kites - as soon as I had these pumped up - that's where they went.
The next day, I got a call from a friend and we headed over to Kailua. I put the 11 up and used the twintip. The wind was just a hair too strong, but I depowered the kite and stayed out for a couple of hours.
I truly missed kiting - this is something I'm going to have to remedy although living in Ewa Beach makes any kite outing a good haul (Kailua or Mokuleia...). I'm also gonna get my directional ready.
