More sweet pics nice. Man those waves do look mean, like drunk rage mean. I never thought they were good on sunday but I don't think they where that bad.

I love that shot at the end taken around 4:30, one of the best pics I've seen. It looks like am outside and starting my jibe to come in. If the current would not have been so strong we could have had some shots of us killing it at the break in front of my place. The waves hitting the third sand bar and reef had some really nice shape. As you can see clean and smooth. We should have left the elbow around 2 and kited south beach earlier. Oh well

Anderson was right about my low cost 5 meter. I grabbed that last for 200 bucks KO and it is in great shape. I did see a complete 5 rev on NWkite for 250. Some one should by that, keep the kite and flip the bar for 87 dollars
I'd rather be Rollerblading

well i am not going to let this wave bashing continue andrew. With that much wind ramping up that fast there is always going to be more blown out then clean but there was quality to be had and what it lacked in perfection it made up for with size. This early in the season with temps as they were my sessions exceeded expectations. Rough seas like these are great preperation for when it really does get good.

yes Ivo the wind did die off as abruptly as it came on. When the mean pictures were taken it was 35 gusting into the low 40's and it was dropping steadily through the 20's when the later picture was taken.


the pictures seem to be cut in half, the whole right side of the frame is gone. You can see the full shots by going to
http://www.kiteridersllc.com/mb/viewtopic.php?t=2204 it does not make them look cleaner but you get to see a bit more of the size.

thanks for taking the pictures anderson and thanks andrew for coordinating and hosting on sunday. I had a blast!!

Despite the blown out conditions early on Jens and Andrew were like kids in a candystore engaging gracefully on waves in every single opportunity, strapless.

The last picture was taken by Andrew's wife. Credits to her. Andrew, maybe she deserves a good SLR, who knows she will be the next surf photographer in the midwest.

All pictures are great,but the last one really stands out for me..If I could choose between big~choppy or smaller but clean~liquid gold in front of me,ehhh thats easy:)


Our waves are created by the wind,although in my opinion the best condition arent coming from 5m weather,but right after the "chaos" fade down..,

Funny I have met some veterans on Maui and their moto was big kites(10-12m)and big waves,less wind,less chop,more towing to the waves= ultimately more surfing than kitesurfing.....


at the end it doesnt matter what you like or prefer,its about passion for water and understanding who is the best...the one who got most fun on the water.

ya IVO, ive only been saying that for years around here..haaaa!-thats actually not a hard concept to grab being that surfing happens in when offshore or wind has died. Around here you should get both the crazy stuff, and by all means dont pack up when it turns light as the form size and interval time gets way sick. did however have one 7m day at mc last dec that it was pretty amazingly clean and windy but sooo rare.

Rorke I would be for that idea,but I do remember last time I asked V what kinda sick process is behind it to not change that pic,answer was he got used to it :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :twisted:
