“Got kitesurfing on the mind, mixed with some search & classification tech, and a dab of political ranting”

St. Francis Yacht Club Thursday Night Kiting

Posted by direwolff on April 8, 2005

A good time was had by all at last night’s (4/7/05) SFYC kitesurfing event. Organized by local wind junkies John Gomes and Jim Kiriakis, the weekly event should provide lots of excitement. Fortunately, some great shots were captured by good friend and amateur photographer Byron Cleary which can be seen at the following web site:

If you’ve had a hankering for the sport but never really had a chance to get an upclose view of its possibilities, come out to San Francisco’s St. Francis Yacht Club at Crissy Field on a Thursday some time this summer and expose yourself to the madness. Local kitesurfing pioneers Chip Wasson, Steve Gibson, and Greg Boyington are likely to be among the crew stylin’ for the fans. Big air crazies like Jono Buys (pictured above) and Geoff Headington are also sure to inspire a few ooohs and ahhhs.
