Default Video From Kite - Event Coverage Kite Season Kickoff At Crandon Park

Miami Kiteboarding, Cabrinha/ASM, TKS, Slingshot/Neil Hutcheson and a bunch of others go together to celebrate the return of kite season with demos and events. There is a video shot with a GoPro HD mounted on a 2011 Cabrinha Switchblade kite at the bottom of this post.

Winds were LIGHT for the event. They roughly averaged around 9 kts. with lulls to 7 kts. and gusts to a whopping 11 kts.. Guys were ripping despite this on lightwind gear big boards and good kites, locked in too.
