Website Information

This website is simple and low maintenance. After all we’re out kiteboarding or getting ready for our next excursion.

We have aimed for:

This website is hand coded in HTML by us, so don’t look for all the fancy stuff.  In case you’re interested, we tried to make it close to HTML 4.0/XHTML 1.0 compliant.  Yes, it uses separate CSS and SSI files for styling for the header and menus.

The website includes over 110 pages (as of August, 2011). The main pages occupy only about 300k (exclusive of images), which is an average of about 11k per page. All that means that you are looking at a very efficient website which loads quickly and is a friend to every web browser, cell phone and web surfing device I have been able to get my hands on for testing.

We would like you to link to our website. In exchange we’ll link to yours if you wish.

In the fall of 2008 we took a class from PVCC (Paradise Valley Community College) in Web Design. We strained our brain in the process, but were able to keep up with the young kids taking the class. This website, in its basic form, was our final project. Oh, yes, we got an "A"!

We tell people that ours is a top-ranked website. July 25th, 2011 we decided to put our money where our mouth was and here is the result:
