One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

After spending a couple days on Treasure Island, I'd like to spend the night in St. Augustine. Naturally I'd like to stay in a motel on the beach so I'll have easy access to kite flying.  Tongue Grin Tongue
Any help or recommendations  Undecided would be appreciated  Wink

Thanks Much

I was just in the area (I live in Denver).

I was in Brooksville, FL and went to Treasure Island every weekend for the six weeks I was there.  I saw an advert for a kite surf harness in Jacksonville and made the 6hr round trip to purchase.  While I was nearby, I went out to St Augustine to fly.

There is a Kite store there that has a pretty good selection of misc kites.  However, the kid behind the counter was not very interested or knowledgable.  Stop at the store and see what you can get out of them for info.

I went to the beach and flew for about 4 hrs.  It was lonely.  However, you can drive on the beach which was fun.  Definitely drive on the beach and fly next to your car.

As for your question...nope...no idea where to stay.  Good luck!

Call Ocean Extreme Sports (904) 461-9415 and ask for Rob. He used to be a member of the GWTW forum "Fireball Rob" great guy and one heck of a great kite flyer as well. He should be able to tell you anything you need to know about St. Augustine.

Realizing you've already been there and gone by now ...if you ever go back to St. Augustine! O'Steen's Restaurant http://www.osteensrestaurant.com/ is a must visit! They have THE ABSOLUTE BEST fried shrimp on the Planet! That is a promise! Their 'hush puppies' are great too!
