If this is the wrong forum just please tell me where to post this.
Maby I am alone in this but I would enjoy sailing with more AIs. Does anyone else have the same desire Is there a desire to get together once a month or so at any given sight in So Cal. I am not thinking about anythig formal just lets get a calender and meet some place at a pre determened place.
While have been using my AI in Long Beach / Belmount shores and have the place wired, ditto for Huricane Gulch in San Pedro . I would love to check out mission bay, hodges lake ect. but do not have a clue how to do this optimaly. I am thinking that for each sight picked some one could be the local and post perfered launch site and a loose if you want to do for the day. Having a few boats together would make the logistics of loading and unloading easier. Provide a few people to watch our stuff on the beach. I believe the presence of a fleet at a location could also create a "buzz " about the boats and help generate sales.

Should include Island fleets at local Hobie Cat regattas (they did this at Dana Point for the 40th regatta - and they had 10+ boats)
Glad that you're enjoying your new toy MRL...

Have a Hobie Day~

I am loving the boat. When we race is it one design or can I drop a fox rig into the boat.

Hi,
My name is Roderick and I live in Encinitas ( San Diego). I am getting closer to buying a AI and would like to find people I can sail with. One big draw for me is to look for surf spots so if there are others out there that I can sail with let me know even if it is flat water.

MRL,
I grew up in Huntington and learned to wind surf at Seal.Are you playing in the surf at Ray Bay? What are the rules about beach launching there?
Were I live I was told you can Launch the boat but the sail has to be down to do it.

Hey you SC AI guys, I'm over in Phoenix and go to Rocky Point Mexico. It's a great place and has an excellent beach to launch from and very good destinations should you want a destination.

We'll be there for a week at the end of the month and again in mid June. There's Hobie dealer there with a couple AI's, he rents Hobie kayaks too.

It's called Puerto Penasco, 225 miles SSW of Phoenix or 4 hours. We go through Gila Bend AZ, then south to Sonoita MX, then 60 miles in Mexico on highway 8 to Puerto Penasco. There is a new highway under construction from Yuma to Puerto Penasco, I don't think it's finished all the way yet. Puerto Penasco or Rocky Point as we call it is a great place, we have never had a problem and have been going for years. The population is ~ 20,000, it's a shrimping seaport and a major get-away spot for Arizonians. You should find alot of information on Google.



This is where we stay, we are on the beach and an easy pull to the waters edge;

I do not know about the launching rules at Seal Beach. I normaly launch out of Alamitos Bay. They have an area set up to launch kayaks from; easy beach access, a wash down station, and parking Plus some decent resturants on the water you can peddle up to

Bob,
I just flu over it the other day coming back from Mexico and thought it might be a cool place to check out. I couldn't find any info about AI rentals though. If you have info on that dealer let me know.
