Egg on my Kite

I've been using my teency tiny inflatable boat to kite off the grid a little. I'm drawn to the wild, secluded spots like South Monomoy. I can't kite there anymore, (legally), so I'm doing some exploring and poking around for new venues.




Egg Island, near Kalmus Beach. I launch from the sand bar at low tide and kite in the kiddie pool.

This bar is exposed for only about 2 or 3 hours before and after low tide. The main beach in the background would be an easier launch but it's off limits. It has massive signs saying so and a guard actually patrols the beach.



I can't say I didn't see the signs. You can read them from 10 miles away.

Is this spot worth all the effort of boating out here? No, not really. I just like the challenge of finding a way to kite an otherwise inaccessible spot.
