Ok, so I live on the gulf coast and out front of my home is littered with these really cool uninhabited barrier islands with miles of sand dunes, deer, birds, etc. They also have the best surf around.

this is what im considering taking up being that its in my price range for sure. The problem is I have absolutley NO experience flying anything. So, Is this a lack in judgment to take somthing like this up just for leasure...being that I have zero experience in flying??

 

Looking for honest opinions...thanks

if it was me.. id just get a boat ... a fast little boat... that way you can fish off of it .. dive off of it .. bring some hoes and shit drink some brews... dont gotta worry about crashing into the ocean after a few beers.. yea the water plane thing would be cool to have and fly but idk doesnt seem as practical.

^glad u brought this up. I do have a boat. The problem is that the days that the surf is at its best, its way too rough, you would capsize. The majority of my visits would be on these days.

^this is the honesty im looking for. but keep in mind, a boat is out of the question in the days i want to go surf because its too rough.

 

FYI- the islands are roughly 20 miles off shore.

wind doesnt create waves, although i would think it might be hard to land.

20 miles is pretty fucking far to be flying over water. it would take atleast 45 minutes or so id imagine. thats a loooooooong time to be flying something when you dont really know how to fly.

 

having said that, im jealous as fuck and definitely buy that motherfucker if i lived out there. you can build your own island oasis. thats some bopset shit.

THAT THING IS DEFINITELY POWERFUL ENOUGH TO CARRY A GENERATOR WITH YOU TO AN ISLAND, THINK OF THE POSSIBILITIES

i know, that Oasis looks dope but i cant find what it retails for...

 

on a side note: the majority of the waves in the gulf are wind drivin. So on a typical day i would take flight would be a stiff 15mph-25mph onshore wind.:o

For 20k more you could buy a real airplane and learn to fly, which would be cool.

 

I am not following how if a boat would capsize then a sea plane is a solution.

depending on the wind direction, the back side of the island is always smooth. just land it on the non-windward side with no problem.

Well if you're going to spend that much, spend a little more on some instruction untill you feel comfortable. Maybe even get the instruction first before you buy it and feel out if it is worth it and relatively safe for your needs.

understandable but its easier to see further in the sky than on the boat. So if you were lost you got a better chance of getting home by the amount you can see. Im interested in this thread but I gotta work. Sheit more info later.
