Yeah, so that didn't exactly work the way I'd hoped. The weather didn't cooperate, and the great winds that were predicted ended up being a huge disappointment, so we postponed. <sigh>

Soon, though.... seriously.... sooooooon........ :bash:

:-D

It was AMAZING!!! I don't have words. Seriously. Best thing I've ever done. I can't wait until I can go back out. *GRIN*

Best. Day. Ever.

(sadly, my b/f was working and didn't get any pictures of me actually flying the kite, only of me and my instructor dragging the gear back upwind. next time, though)

So glad you had a blast! Woo hoo!
Start planning on going to kite party next year. Get there early and spend a few days a few miles up the beach at Long Beach, Ca. There's always a lot of kite surfing going on there and I expect surfing in the ocean will be a whole different experience.
