    I’m already committed for the 2020 summer (Hood River) and fall (Hatteras) seasons, however, I would be interested in looking at KGB for future seasons. I know that cost of living is rather high in the bay area so I’d want to know whether we could find suitable, low cost accommodations. My wife and I travel and live in a 30 ft. camper when we are in the U.S. Any thoughts? BTW: I’m PASA level 3 certified. 16 yrs kiting experience. 4 years teaching. I teach for Goodwinds (Dorado PR) during the winter.
