Driving into the Port of Everett at the Scuttlebutt Entrance I see they hung some banners on the construction fence, including this one :glasses8:

And these banners all over the marina.
We can say now definitively that Kiteboarding is an official acknowledged JI activity. No turning back now!

Tuesday Jetty stellar! Steady wind, 12m some 10m, high tide full pond, kickers to launch off on outside, sandpeople exit last ferry at 6pm, wide open beach, birds of prey drafting off kite near pond, relatively warm water, spectacular views, I could go on.... Pskite's talented kiters going big and wowing the crowd, along with kiters of all shapes, sizes, and abilities stoked. As good as Jetty gets.

Got to attach a slider to the sail boat . If anyone has an idea I'm happy to implement it. I've hit a slider very few times but it was good when wind was too light to do anything else.
