beautiful shots... my bro lives down there, has seen some great waves at secret spots, usually hurricane dependent though.
No washout for him though, he 's a longboarder.
Best I have gotten at folly is peaky waist to chest high, but I will be back for more :)
ohh, LTS = lose the straps, but whatever fits your style.
I like strapless to make tiny waves feel better, straps back on if I may need to eject over big foamballs. Other thing about strapless is it lets you ride a board the size you would surf, and keep more rail in the water, giving better turns, smoothing out bumps etc.
Ok, off the soapbox.

Yeah I'm making my way over to strapless. There were a couple clips in the video (white board). I just started kiting about 8 months ago and I still like jumping and raileys and stuff. Plus I kite a lot by myself and hate being away from my board in the middle of inlets 300 yards off the beach hahah. I'll get there eventually tho. Thanks for the feedback dude.

I wish I had some footage or pictures from Hurricane Rafael, the one right before Hurricane Sandy. It was 5-7 ft SSE swell with 20 mph N winds (side/off) and cranking 100 yard long lefts at my spot. The best kiting conditions I've ever personally witnessed. You could do 5 turns then get barreled on the inside. Then the wind went NW and the waves were firing @ the washout! Spring is good too just not as much power unless a solid low P sets up really south in the Atlantic.

Wow, you only started in 2012?
Respect. You must have put in the time. And talent.
But living at the beach can't hurt either!
