A fundraiser is scheduled for Friday to benefit Kinsley Wong, the extreme sportsman injured in a kiteboarding crash off San Simeon in July.
Zorro’s Café and Cantina in Pismo Beach will donate a portion of its sales from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. to Wong and his family. The restaurant is located at 927 Shell Beach Road in Pismo Beach.
Wong, 43, was apparently was pulled out of the water by a gust of wind and dropped on the rocks July 15.
In kiteboarding, a person is strapped onto a board and is harnessed to a huge kite. The kiteboarder uses wind to propel himself across the sea.
A 2006 feature article in The Tribune said, "(Wong) is known as the father of kiteboarding on the Central Coast by area kiteboarders." He said he and a friend were the first to kiteboard on the Central Coast in October 1998.
