Thanks for the info! I was actually planning on making a trip to Pensacola soon to stay with some friends for a few days. I will definitely by visiting the spots that you suggested. Until then, I guess I will be practicing my self-launches on Dauphin Island.
I just moved about 15 minutes from Dauphin Island, Alabama, and I am looking to meet up with other kiters.
Let me know if you kite this location regularly or if you know of any resources that might connect me with others in the area.
