decide if it's worth spending the $$$. Is there anyone around who kitesurfs
who could check out the spot with you?
My regular spot (Pine Point) is about 2 hrs from my house and I definately
consider it worth the drive. I usually get to the beach at least twice a
week, sometimes more. I even drive 1.5 hrs there after work, get an hour or
so of riding before dark, then drive the 2 hrs home*. It's much more fun
than buggying, IMO. So maybe it's worth it even if you have to drive 1 hr
each way every time??
*(I do have a spot that's about 1/2 hr from work on a large lake, but it's
gusty and the wind direction is only good there when it's bad at Pine Point)
