Kiting In the smoke

Crazy gusty but fun scene at Pleasure Bay. From the water you could see the big gusts blowing across the launch area, picking up sand. It looked like a cloud of dense fog or smoke. I usually said, "Oh my," politely to myself, and turned around before I went into the white out.

Kirk, on the other hand, was kiting into the sand clouds, hitting massive kiteloop megajumps for the cheers and jeers of the big Summer crowd in the bleachers.

Pleasure Bay, Kitesurfed, SW, 20-50, 6M RPM/ Flx 136, with Frank, Jean, Brad, Kyle, Kirk, Spatsy, many others. Air temp 68F.

Picture- It's not the camera angle. Kirk really was going high enough to look down on other kites. Picture by Spatsy.
