Kite surfing

The wind out at Cape St Francis was just right for the kite surfers to come out and play. The wind was on-shore and the guys were gunning it up and down the beach in the shallows.


Chaos Boy was mesmerised by these guys being dragged around the sea by their big kites. I imagined him thinking something like: "One day when I'm big..."

A close-up of one of the kite surfers as he came past us

Go and visit Skywatch. The photos are great and the sky is the limit.
