Just an FYI for those people that may not know already, our very own Harrison Windsports president Luk Stanek raced kite buggies and also held the world land kite buggy speed record for many years. His speed is still tied for 5th place all time according to this website:
We were at the beach the other day when a couple of friendly RCMP officers stopped to mention that boaters have occasionally had difficulty seeing kiters and windsurfers when they are wearing a dark wetsuit and sailing a dark kite or sail.
For more visibility, consider wearing a bright colored PFD, or perhaps a bright colored rashguard shirt over your wetsuit.

Saturday, June 28, 2014 the beach was cleaned up, and organized. Luk arranged to have a small excavator there which was able to perform some quite amazing feats for its size. It was able to lift and move the concrete barriers, those huge rocks, and other junk that was spread around willy nilly. Luk had a plan for everything, and the guys operating the excavator executed the plan perfectly. Jeremy and I cleaned up the beaches and helped where we could. There is now more room for everyone to rig, launch, and move around.
