KITE SURFING AROUND HAWAII | September 15, 2009

I am learning to kite surf and it is not easy. I have bruises and scrapes, but I am not complaining!! In the process, I not only learn a new and fun sport, but I feed off a new challenge. Learning takes me out of my comfort zone. And like an infant learning to walk, I also go through an awkward stage looking like a fool but you have to keep trying, keep practicing, especially if you want to get better and feel more comfortable. And I have, but of course, I still need to practice!! Many people on the beach are so encouraging and my frustrations can mount when you are depending on mother nature to have wind!! No wind; no kiting practice. Oh well, patience is another lesson to be learned. Practice and repetition are my keys; others may be more naturally inclined so they may not need it. Whatever it is, I do not want to stop learning new things. Anyway, I want to share with you some photos of  kiting spots around Hawaii and some very talented kiters as well!!
