May 25th: Riding at Kite Island, New Jersey

We went on a boat and rode to Kite Island, where we kited in 13-16 knots of wind in a big, open space and explored some islands further east.

May 26th: Beautiful day at Kite Island, New Jersey

About 25 Kiters came and enjoyed a 26°C warm and windy day, with winds from 20-30+ knots.
Riding a 16 sqm kite in 25 knots is much safer then riding a smaller kite...took a 12, now I hurt my rib, no more kiting for me until :?:

May 29th: Hatteras Area

The wind blew in the morning, then dropped around noon.
Fine with me, no riding possible for me anyway!
Time to explore some beaches of the area!
