Windy days have come. Â Went longboarding in the morning before the wind took over, then landboarding in the afternoon followed up with Yoga all before the really stormy weather hit. Â Today it must be blowing about 30 knots out there. Â Checked the surf this morning and nearly got sand blasted…surf is supposed to spike up this afternoon but I think I may head north to find the low tide hot spring in Marin. Â Will be good to go on a little adventure. Â Looking forward to evolving into riding the wind and waves as opposed to just the wind and sand. Â There was one lone kiter out beyond the surf…I don’t know how he was staying in the ocean and not just flying away.
I hooked up the GoPro to the handle of my kite yesterday facing it up thinking it would provide the best view of riding and the kite…but it didn’t. Â All you can see for the most part is my kite going up and down. Â Didn’t capture me catching air on the start and my powerslides that I’m perfecting so that I can do a sliding carve into a reverse then popping it around 180 to be back on track. Â Have to get someone down on the beach with me next time. Â Such a cool feeling, a good mixture of skating, surfing, snowboarding, and maybe even wake. Â Â The shift from gravity pulling on you to the wind pulling you is a new sensation for me. Â With this new pursuit, I now have less conditions to wait for. Â Wind or no wind, swell or no swell, low tide or high tide…it’s all about the right combination.
