Whether you kite or surf the build-up and excitement of getting out on the water can sometimes be better than the actual event. Other times it’s the reverse. The wind and waves look marginal but you go out anyway and end up having one of your best rides of the summer. Sometimes you capture those rides with
a camera and other times you keep those memories to yourself. Besides, the waves and boosts are always bigger when the camera isn’t around 🙂
Overall 2018 was another great year for kiteboarding. Some highlights were the fall kite trip in Northern MI, making the front page of the Manistee newspaper, and kiting in the golf of Mexico off Dauphin Island, AL.
