Can you say squall line? Here's a nice one. Winds had already dropped and shifted offshore before this one arrived. Often, the winds may persist and then go nuclear just before these bad boys pass over. Lots of kiters have been hurt by them and quite a few killed.

They are often easy to anticipate, I recall the one that killed a CT kiter was evident four days in advance. You can see them coming often enough. They also can pass quickly at times. If you know they are coming, that is the time to be off the water, kite down and secured for the short time it passes over. The wind can change on the backside, increase, change direction often by 90 degrees, or drop along with the temperature. Watermen need to know this stuff and act on it, in advance.

Some real intriguing video footage from all over in this one.

... and now, for a public service announcement that has nothing, we hope, to do with kiting. So go forth with a clean conscious, atmosphere and uh bowels ... in good wind!





This is a real product, you can find it on Amazon.

An amazing capture of an apparent student/instructor induced kite loop. The water looks shallow, hope the student came through without getting too badly banged up. Just noticed it looks a bit wet, possibly squally out. Wonder if the instructor kept the student out when they got hit by some gusts? It has happened before sad to say.
