Up, Down, and Strapless

Flo lets his trainer kite out for some fresh air

It was one of those days. Up and down wind combined with low tide making for lots of rigging and walking, not much kiting. Nobody can accuse me of not trying. I used 3 kites, 4 boards, but was mostly behind the wind curve, as always. Still... it was a beautiful day to be playing on the beach, and I got my first strapless waterstarts during some brief moments of almost enough wind. Note- strapless doesn't refer to jockstraps or bra straps. It refers to footstraps, as far as I know.

First Encounter, Kitesurfed, W, NW, 6-26 MPH, with Flo, Kate, Frank, Jim.
