Post general kiteboarding discussion topics here!
At about 5pm today I saw a fin that didn't look particularily like a doplhin fin. I saw quite a bit of dolphins in Santa Barbara, and got I almost hit by one in Belmont while kite surfing. The fin was a bit more brown and didn't have as much of a sweep as a dolphin fin. I made sure not to fuck up my tack. I am attributing the color and shape discrepancies to my fogged up sunglasses. There are dolphins at Waddell, right?
FYI.. just saw this on the news... Stick to kiting at 3rd ave.
the forecast doesn't look any better...
One of my most startling yet cool moments at Waddell so far was experiencing a huge whale cruising northbound just outside of the break. It was early in the day and there were only around 2-3 kites out but I won't forget how massive and inspiring it was to ride by it
""Dolphin" Week" coming up in August. Don't miss it.
While surfing w/my son @ WC last week - a grey day with little wind, but very nice surf, my little dude who was in waist deep water was nudged by a seal....the seal came back around and took a little friendly nibble, like a puppy would, which freaked my son out....
It was a great teaching opportunity about the "eat or be eaten" reality of the ocean.
and no, to Arrested Development fans, the seal was not wearing a yellow bowtie
