I know I cant spell but if you read this you'll hopefully appreiciate the sheer beauty of my experience yesterday.

I live in the UK where things are not considered to be the most beautiful for kiting. But consider this.

You arrive to your local spot one morning and the sun s out, you have a massive yellow sand flat beach in front of you and visability is 40 + km. The water is slight and the wind is blowing a nice 12 knts on shore.

Kite gets unpacked after the usual hello's and excitement. Readyto hit the water to practise the low wind tricks, toe side transitions are abundant and to be honest, they were my first.

I'm happy, in tune with the kite and the wind, and I look to the distance while cruising along one handed and see a sight meant for africa, not exactly liverpool.

I see a Swarm , of seabirds communing at the waters edge, and something I did, disturbed them.

The next minute, I was riding alongside no less than 300 or so launching seabirds which were flying a foot off the surface of the water. cruising along in parallel, I felt happy. Happier than I've felt in a long time.

For me, thats what its all about.

Ride Safe.

The rocket.

Looks to be nice experience in the wilderness of UK.

My similar best feeling when I cruise peacefully in 12-13 knots with a deep 100%visible sea waters. You can enjoy the cruising while looking directly under you and you see fish, sands, and mysteries of the underwater world.

Fly hi,

exactly how I felt while riding in Egypt close to the sandbar. clear water, warm water, blue, sun, no clouds, warm air.
That's why I can't go on the water here nowadays because the memory is so fresh and would be disturbed by dark water, grey sky, water and air f****** cold, with mask, gloves, thick neo, shoes, etc

You boys up there in Europe (Central and North) have muchos grandes kahunas :grin: Or maybe you are just so fucking adicted, that you forget about the cold. Either way, I just want to say - NAH NEH NEH NAAAAAH - I think I might need some sort of 3mm vest next time, just to keep the chill off me chest :grin:

Much respect to all you frozen fun lovers!
