KITERS AT FANTASY FEST!!!


Image
Heading down to the Overseas Highway to Bone Island, Cayo Hueso or as some know it, Key West ...

Image
For some partying during Fantasy Fest with a foursome, and ...

Image
Some shredding in all that calm Keys water!

Image Image

Fantasy Fest is sort of a Halloween Mardi Gras that captures Conchs and tourists from all over into a massive party.
The party cranks from October 22 through 31, 2004 with the big parade going off Saturday night, October 30, 2004.

More about Fantasy Fest at: http://www.fantasyfest.net/

Cruising down the Keys, you should plan to stop off in Islamorada about halfway down, say hi to Brad Lange at Sevensports and shred a while.

KEY WEST!

Image
Arriving at KW, crank up at island time ...

Image
Don't forget to bring your horns or whatever other mufti you like to tear around in on All Hallow's Eve.

Image
KW can offer up a mixed serving of nuts much of the year but they generally arrive in droves for the Fest.

Image
You'll get to hang with locals, that is the ones that didn't flee the island for the event. A Keys "Conch" with an early kite leash system.
From: http://www.keyshistory.org/

Image
They have a big parade down Duval every year, complete with floats and ... you get the idea.

Image
You can even show off your new kite design or as this guy managed, do wonders with toliet paper sculpture!

Don't forget the prime riding. It is possible to ride off of Smathers Beach in KW currently but MAN DON'T SCREW THINGS UP!
They are very close to the road, airport, powerlines and beach goers. Use a kite leash, get offshore beyond
the swimming area marked by pilings and stay there. Keep the happy juice for after kiting. There is too
much at risk reversing the order, particularly here! More about kiting guidelines there at:

Keep 'em flying at this incredible launch by NOT riding like a kook or some of the more bizarre locals
will come looking for you!

Image
A pair of Conchs. The guy on the left (like the dozen or so that will come after you if ...) just had a secret Cayo Hueso
booze surprise, the guy on the right is still waiting for his to showup.

Image
Of course you can suck down a can of suds. If you are hot, you can even spray on a bikini as shown here.
HEY, somebody put that fish back in the water or at least give it a beer!

Image
This lady just heard her new black & white kite came in, SHE'S STOKED!

Image
Back at the beach, Paul Menta is just floating along.
NOTE: These photos are from a year ago.
Today, you would likely see him in a helmet. Times change.!

Image
There is a full complement of emergency staff on call for the event so feel at ease.

Image
Strolling down Duval, getting happy!

Image
Well, almost everyone is happy. This guy must have gotten stuck with the wrong blood type.

Image
All kinds out to be sure ...

Image
Just make a fashion statement ... or not.

Image
Riding time...

Image


More to come. This is just Part I!
