Being Stuck in South Africa for the Winter, I was hoping to get a little footage and put something together. Things didn’t turn out that way. Kiting on average 3-4 days a week at my home spot on the Eastern Cape Coast in Cannon Rocks, I ended up with a mountain of footage. the result is slightly longer than anticipated.
The Wind was often strong and gusty and the waves were gnarly and big, but it was all kiteable. We even managed to get some soft Easterly days (Summer Wind).
The Kites used were from Size 11m to 5m. ( not so much footage of the 5 as the conditions were terrible on the beach for filming, but great in the water:)) The Fury and Escape both got plenty of Action. I also got to test the Peter Lynn C shaped foil, the Charger2 and there is a sneak preview in the clip.
The sound track is available here For Download.
For the travelers, I wouldn’t rush here over the winter as this year was unusual. Often we have cross off gusty winds making the riding not so pleasant (Some of it on the video).
As the days get longer (And kiting hours are extended) It’s time to dust off the short wetsuit, and pull out the sunscreen.
