Re: On Shore Wave Kites

Onshore can be a lot of fun if you have the right kite and you know how to fly it. The waves are short and even if you get the long one the wind will tumble it, so forget down the line. You have to grab a piece and go up and down with it. Here is how I do it with a kite that flies back and turns smo...
