Up north – Onboard

|Who knew that this would be so enjoyble?! Teaching your sons to kite. And your son's girlfriend. I try to get my brother and my wife on a trainer kite too, but the kite police in Essex Bay make us land the kite. Baby plovers are napping in the neighborhood. |
Watching everybody get their first rides is a great feeling! About as much fun as riding myself. I love it. Riding with them is going to be really special. Until they get better than me. Then I'll have to go back to windsurfing.
7/8- Josh- Monday evening. Josh's second time with a kite, bodydrag practise, first time getting on a board! Wind dies late. 10M, Revere.
7/10- Ben & Josh- Wednesday evening. Ben's first time getting on a board! 14M. Josh gets on a board but wind is too light for the 10M. SSW, 5-15 MPH, Revere.
7/13- Saturday. We boat, in Al's boat, into Essex Bay, inside of Cranes Beach. Put up the trainer kite for Al, Barbara, and Paige. We get shut down by a ranger on a 4x4. No kites during plover season. The Plovers own this beach.
What a week!
