So what do you do on a windy day? Well, you grab your kite & harness and strap on your board if you're anything like the three guys who were out on the lagoon today (better the lagoon than the sea, especially with gusty, erratic wind conditions if you're not into becoming shark bait, IMHO).
Well, the skies cleared this morning but it became rather blustery. So, what to do when there's 15 knot (~28 km/hr) winds? Grab your kite & board and go kite surfing, of course. At least that's what 9 guys decided to do this afternoon - here are some pics (slideshow, so choose the image to display or scroll through). Just don't lose your kite past the breakers, kids, or you might come face-to-face with the Great White sharks who move to this area from Mossel Bay's Seal Island during the summer. I guess that's why you don't often see kite surfing here, especially off the mouth... :)
