Event: 2009 Tampa Bay Kite Masters Location: St. Petersburg, FL Date: 3/1/09
Date: 03-01-2009
The Tampa Bay Kite Masters started off Saturday night with the Kick-off Party at Water Sports West were we all enjoyed great food and hanging out with friends. The next day the wind was up, along with the rain and cold temperatures associated with a cold front. Competitors gathered at Sand Key State Park and raced downwind to St. Pete Beach.

Mike Hall, Damien LeRoy and Billy Parker were in the lead and passed each other back and forth a couple of times. The race was so intense that whoever wiped out first would lose the lead. Mike was able to push through and gain some ground through the race to finish first. Some minutes behind Josh Noe and myself were on the same boat, passing each other, crashing and passing again, but he was able to come in a few seconds ahead of me. It was a lot of fun!
