Kailua Kitesurfing

My idea of a perfect day at the beach does not include wearing long sleeves to guard against the chill of the tradewinds - I prefer to go at a time when I can sit and soak up the warmth of the afternoon sun without worrying about sand blowing in my eyes.  However, the reward for taking a walk on Kailua Beach when the winds are up is that you get to watch many kitesurfers and windsurfers launch right in front of you.  Kailua's tradewinds make it a coveted spot for people who enjoy both of those sports.  This guy looks up at his kite just before jumping on his board and taking off!

  1. We have included your blog in our guide Around The World.

    The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the "City Daily Photo Blog" lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from and related to a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are kept which are readily searchable by date.

    Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.
