Ocean’s Edge Resident and Kite Man Günter Solms Featured in VOID Magazine

January 21st, 2013 · Leave a Comment

A comprehensive feature article, “Kiteboard North Florida,” in the January issue of VOID magazine, profiles Günter Solms, one of many unique residents living the beach lifestyle at Ocean’s Edge in South Jacksonville Beach.


The article, written in a question and answer format, details the sport of kiteboarding and highlights Solms’ journey from a novice to an expert “kite man” in less than 10 years. The article also reveals the best places to enjoy kiting in Northeast Florida – including the beach just steps from Solms’ home.

“The article on Günter is really interesting – he is an expert kiteboarder and so deserving of this recognition,” said Victoria (Vikki) Robbins of Victoria Robbins Realty, Inc., the real estate company responsible for sales at Ocean’s Edge. “Our community is a sought-after location for a wide variety of interesting and dynamic individuals, like Günter, who thrive living at the beach and enjoy its universal appeal as a fun and uplifting place to call home.”

Originally from Switzerland, Solms is a chemical engineer at Vistakon, Johnson & Johnson. He and his wife, Kelly, moved to Ocean’s Edge in 2011. They were drawn to the community because it is steps from the beach and offers beautiful residences and a convenient location.

“There is no place like Ocean’s Edge,” Solms said. “I enjoy living here so much that I cannot imagine living anywhere else.”

Located one block from the Atlantic Ocean in South Jacksonville Beach, the community is not only near the beautiful Jacksonville beaches but just a short walk to local restaurants, nightlife and retail venues. Ocean’s Edge offers low maintenance living with one-, two- and three-bedroom condominium homes, ranging in size up to 1,417 square feet of living space. Homes range in price from $171,000 to $269,000.  More information is available here.
