So, let's take off. Mikey Bradley moves out on a surfboard, defies gravity without footstraps. Mike rides for RRD.

Andy with Best and Francisco with Kitebanditz get off the beach. Francisco is carrying a custom Waterboards kiteboard. Lloyd of Waterboards is also the guy that whipped out all the great board trophies for the competition.

Latino in from the SW coast. Latino has been working hard to keep us fllying off Tiger Tail Park at Marco Island, FL. Thanks and good luck!


Image
Damien T. is impressive in being able to throw near perfect kite loops all day, strong coordination and energy to spare. There was some trouble keeping sufficient distance from shore and bottom at times. There is a interesting sequence to follow in the next post when he wiped out nearshore in shallow water, a third time too many. Absorbing the impact of a speed of light kiteloop landing gone bad in inches of water? Glad he came through OK. The sand may not recover from the impacts however.

Mikey on a never ending barrel quest or is he just angling for the rinse cycle?


Image
There was a LOT of wave riding talent at this event, footstraps optional!


Image


Image
Laura riding for JN Kites jumps inside Stacey

Image
There was one fella who threw a jump TOO close to shore, LANDED onshore with forward momentum ...


Image
right in front of these ladies, fortunately he jumped up and over them rather than plowing through ...


Image
and ended up just in front of all these trees.


Image
Back to the water and stay there!


THANKS to Jacqui Camacho, wife of Dereck (DC Kiteboards) and Pro Photographer for the above three images


Image
Did somebody call the Jupiter Kite Cops?

Big thanks to Jeremy of JUPITER KITEBOARDING for working hard to bring this unique event off for a THIRD YEAR RUNNING!


Image
Bye from Jupiter for now, there are quite a few more interesting and unusual images to come. It takes time to go through select and process images out of a group of over 3000 photos. Stay tuned ...




NOTE ->
IF you know the name of someone that is unidentified or worse, misidentified please set me straight by posting the info. Also, if there is someone you are looking for or a type of shot you favor, again let me know and I'll see what I can come up with. INPUT is welcome.
