Ha ha...funny. Regardless of where you kite this marine life is everywhere. Sharks live in every ocean on the planet and 99% of them all breed and birth in shallow waters. So all the cool flats we like to kite are going to have at least a few species of shark that frequent that area. I just happen to live on a peninsula within a peninsula and all of my kite spots are shallow grassy bottoms which attract a lot of marine life which in turn attracts a lot of sharks.sarc wrote:*************Ayahuasca wrote:Something amazing (and at times equally frightening) about kite surfing is how close we actually get to the marine life. My list so far consists of sharks, turtles, sting ray, jelly fish (Man O War are beautiful but deadly), more variety of fish than I can name, lots of dolphin, massive manta rays, lots of sharks, more sharks, still more sharks, and the occasional manatee. It's a pretty amazing sport that lets you get so close to nature. A few weeks back I kited right through a feeding frenzy of juvenile bonnet head sharks chasing down a school of sting ray on some flats. Pretty amazing sight in about 3 feet of water. Probably only about 20 sharks in the water but it seemed like a thousand at the time.
A few years back I kited directly over a 12 foot bull shark who was sitting in about 5 feet of water and it scared the living shit out of me. It was a sobering reminder that big things with lots of teeth live in the water we kite on.
Can you remind me of where you kite so I can make sure to NEVER go there?
Those look like frigate birds. I saw some in jamaica last week.Hawaiis wrote:Here is the video of the pteradactyl looking birds
