U-turn - and airborne - on a windy and sunny day

U-turn on a windy and sunny day

It was quite gusty on Sunday. Treetops were moving around and my windchimes were not so much chiming as smacking against the side of the house.

In this kind of weather, the kite surfers head to Richmond Beach Saltwater Park. Sometimes the water is full of them but it looks like these surfers had the water pretty much to themselves.

I don't know much about the sport but I suspect it takes quite a bit of skill to execute a U-turn as this surfer did.

Then there's the airborne maneuver - which I assume is deliberate. 

Open invitation: I would welcome an article from a kite surfer, explaining their sport. Contact me: Editor@ShorelineAreaNews.com

King County Search and Rescue has asked people not to go hiking to spare first responders the work caused by injured hikers, and yet here you are celebrating people practicing a MUCH more dangerous sport than hiking.
