Masskiting discovers Wingaersheek
A windy Saturday, predicted to be Northwest. Instead of trekking to the usual Cape Cod locales, I start a movement to check out a seldom kited beach. We get there and find the gate closed, the wind light and fluky. We decide to walk up and over the rocks to the other side, we are literally scrambling over granite with kites and boards in hand. All of this so as to not offend the absentee property owners abutting this gorgeous beach. Little by little more folks appear, and pretty soon, it is a full on Masskiting gathering. Wind strengthens, and I silently cheer at the prospect of flying the 7 meter Wainman Hawaii Gypsy. The waves are still small, so I opt for the Blunt 130 cm twintip. It was on fire!! Everyone out there was in awe of the wind quality and strength, the beautiful fall light on the scenery, and the stoke factor. Ed Sawicki was standing there for what seemed like an eternity shooting photos. I memorized his email and he has sent me what I think are some of the best session pics I have seen, thanks Ed.
PS. I really like flying small kites.
I was only in the water for 5 minutes but managed to get into a few of these shots! Iss Nyccceee!!
It looks like there was one of me when I was overpowered on my 12m trying to walk back upwind but was having some problems.
