Space Coast Florida ??

Are there any members near by? Just wanting to see how many. Would be nice to find some locals and possible put together a meet. Maybe someone to swap gear and or music with? Would be nice to hear some other systems.

?????
Thanks Christopher

    A shark bit me one time. He then realized he was wrong for doing so..

    Three hours SW of you on West Coast (Sarasota). Merritt is a beautiful place. We've visited there and Melbourne in the past.

    I bet you get some excellent views of NASA/SpaceX launches.

    Maybe we can time it when the sharks are busy watching Chuck Norris Week?

    Very near!

    I visited and toured Cape Canaveral last September, and enjoyed the Kennedy Space Center. I think I have the names right. Anyway, I live in CA, so can’t make it. :)

    Yes, the Space Center is great. Really cool to see the Shuttle Atlantis up close.

    What part of Cali? I was born in Pomona and grew up in Barstow.

    I've been privileged to see launches twice while windsurfing off Merritt Island. Would very much enjoy combining a sailing and audio meet there!

    Perhaps you could show me how to paddleboard. I have a pb paddle and a large sailboard I've planned to try, but haven't yet. I'm sure it's inefficient as a paddleboard at 90 cm wide and 170 liter volume, but should be very stable for a beginner. :smile:

    That might be a bit small. For scale thats a standard 3 iron next to the paddle. I think my boards are 11'6".
  • CGTIIICGTIII Posts: 396
    It's 8.4 feet long but 3 feet wide and thicker than most paddleboards. Plenty of flotation for me at 170 liters. I think the extra width would make it slow though.
