The entire South Florida Coast was under a high seas warning as the low pressure system further north in the Atlantic was pumping swell back at Florida. Arriving at Ocean Reef Park I found a super nice lifeguard who couldn't have been more helpful in encouraging me to rig anywhere and enjoy the surf. The wind was a little light at 14-15 Knots but with my 17 Meter TS Kite from BEST I was all sorted. I had recently gotten a hold of the 2013 Armada 135 board and I was really excited to just go out and play in the waves.
The board was super fun and I was perfectly lit on the 17 Meter so for the next two hours I just played, crashed, swam, swallowed water and boosted off some great ramps.
Half way through my session I came into the beach and little boy came up to me. He was a little shy but you could tell he had something to say. " I hope you don't mind but I moved your bag further up the beach so it wouldn't get wet...That looks like a lot of fun." I was absolutely flabbergasted, I love it when you come across a young kid who is completely and utterly selfless. Who is thinking about someone else other than himself and just enjoying seeing someone else have fun. After my session I discovered a note in my bag from his mother Janine Robinson who had taken some photos. Evidently her son at age 10 is already taking surfing lessons and after seeing Kiting thinks that maybe one day he will be tossing some big airs.
Janine took a couple of really nice shots despite the fact that I am a completely goofy mofo on a twintip. Thank You Janine.
