JUPITER KITE INVASION - DAY II

Image

A night of strong winds had kicked up some major surf. The wind eased with sunrise and the riders tackled the day with 11 m and larger kites. Surf riding is about to go off!

Francisco barrels in before the wave.

Soup's on, BIG, white and foamy just the way you like it!

Image
Putting things in perspective ...

Image
Feels like a great day coming on.

Image
It looks like the surfers are running to catchup with Bob Sealman.

Image
I told myself that I would start to give riders in helmets better coverage last year. Leaders need encouragement too, right? Franscisco made it easy serving up some great shots. Many riders provided some great views of the riding.

Image
David, Francisco and Bob line up through the waves.

The guys made riding in heavy surf look easy, most of the time. Dimitri is heading back out. I was impressed at how some normal flat water riding guys, like Brad down in the Keys and Francisco tore up the waves. They both come from surfing and I guess it just comes back.

Image
Brad flys in.
