Some recent session GoPro HD2 shots. Large board + waves + lighter wind + smaller kite can equal spray!


Note: Stay at least 100 yards off lifeguarded beaches and avoid complaint in general while kiting in SE Florida to help maintain our access.
Pass this on!















The GoPro caught this windsurfer in mid jump









There goes Brett

A few shots from the recent Rum Cay Boogie, lots more to come!



The beach off Sumner Point, Rum Cay



An airport shuttle, casual but functional!



Kristyn chases down conch on the sands off Rum




Running offshore through the reefs




Jesse sports a pair of smaller Rum lobsters. They have some monster bugs off the island!




One of several excellent sunsets off the island




Bobby Little, proprietor of the resort cons the pontoon boat on to adventure




Matt Sexton boosts over the sandbar with Jesse, Bobby, Richard and Joey made up in local mud mufti, the dogs too.




Jesse offers a closeup of his island mud job



The dogs like it




Flying over the pontoon boat on the salt pond




Looking up at the sun from the drop off along Rum Cay




That is just a quick look, more to come!

Kiting some massive swells in Maui at Jaws in the new year. Including Flash, Kai, Alex Aguera and more!




"Kiteboarding at Peahi, Maui otherwise known as "Jaws" on January 4th, 2012. This was the biggest swell so far of the season and the day started off with paddle in surfing, then tow surfing, then windsurfing and in the late afternoon, kitesurfing. Quite a full day at Peahi!"

Titled "Life begins at 60! Kitesurfing off Necker." A video clip with some impressive aerial footage of Sir Richard ripping over the flats and breaks east of Necker Island in the BVI.

Well, maybe, I think it depends when you first hook up and how you play things from then on out. Life is for living, so make a plan and work at doing just that.





A view of Necker, see that reef arch to the east enclosing the flats. The tradewinds primarily pump out of the east making this a pretty nice if not private launch.

Another view of Necker looking south toward Mosquito Island and Virgin Gorda.


Have fun out there

"Kitesurfing with whales"
From kiteboarding magazine, I think. Trying to find out more about the shot.

NOTE- After looking at shadows, the halo around the whale, lack of info about who shot this and where support this image being a fake unfortunately.

Headed down to Miami to shoot a roundwinder from Crandon Park to Stiltsville and back again. The wind started out ok but it dropped pretty seriously. Fortunately, I was able to make it back without having to walk on water.


Cape Florida Lighthouse at the southern end of Key Biscayne with the Miami skyline in the background.




One of the more famous Stiltsville houses in kiting circles. No matter what compulsion you may be under, don't jump this house!




Another shot of the lighthouse and keeper cottage.


I have tons of images to go through, process and put up. These are just a taste, more to come.

"My name is Hendrick Burgers I ride for Cabrinha and live on Aruba.
I wanted to share my video with all of you and was hoping if you could help me get the word spread!
Hope you like it

Regards

Hendrick Burgers"

The clip provides a good look at Fisherman Huts of Aruba. Looks pretty powered in this often gusty area with pronounced lulls. He also includes a tow-up segment, not a great idea but what can you do.
