Today was a little more exciting as the Easterly breeze built throughout the morning. Some kiting friends from Boston have rented a house down here and were looking to see the Island's more remote locations. I was more than happy to oblige.
SNAP! The feeling of cracking, snapping and all out destroying the lip of a wave is one of the best feelings in KiteSurfing. When the movement of the wave, the movement of the kite and the speed of your board all come together into a perfect turn on the face of a wave the sensation is unlike anything else. The power you feel as the wave rears up pressing against your board. Then the building energy in your knees. You send the kite back from where you came and then just before the kite pulls you, your legs use all the accumulated energy to snap the board off the top of the wave as the kite kicks into gear and you go rocketing back down the wave in the other direction. I love this sensation. Especially on one of my numerous waves when just as I snap the board around a little 10" Albie jumps out of the water not more than a foot in front of my board.
