Don and I took our first Kite Surfing lesson yesterday and it was amazing.
Talk about extreme sports!!!! You get into a harness a lot like a climbing harness, and then strap a 11 meter (36 ft) kite to you and fly it in the sky while you have a board (lot like a snow board) strapped to your feet. WHOA!
We never got to the board, we started with a small kite, learning how to fly it, then we graduated to an 11 Meter kite. We of course had to wear the customary lesson helmets and life vests (so sexy), but it was a good thing because 36 ft of kite lifts you of the ocean floor and drags you!! Really thrilling.
We both loved it and signed up for lesson 2 next week.
Loads of pictures were taken by the assistant instructor, but I don't have them yet. I will post them as soon as I can!!!
