Saturday Ride..


After finally riding at this years JIBE for the first time...even though I had attended a few years before.. I have continued with the new flavor.
Got some kites through a forum member and using a buggy another member purchased(temporarily) and got a few local enjoyable rides in at Huguenot in Jax. One being at sunrise...very enjoyable :)
Anyways....I ventured North to a familiar location and met a local kiting friend for a day of riding. Afternoon wind came around as the tide drifted out.. and I was lead on my first long ride to the tower and north to the bend. Sweet!
Figured some may enjoy a glimpse, even if shaky headcam footage.
Thanks for all the help everyone...here is to many more rides :)

I hit Treasure Island area pretty regularly for sport kites and buggy. Shout next time I venture down....maybe catch a ride somewhere closer to you.
I am still playing with small areas and turns. The long runs are fun also, but not a big speed demon yet.
The new ride arrived .... tried sharing in kite buggy section but post never worked. Maybe a photo issue, even with resizing...try again later.
Thanks all....can't wait for the next JIBE and some runs with all the folks. Although I live only an hour away...I may try and pitch a tent and hang for the week. Sort of spoiled feeling with such a great spot not far away...makes riding local and fighting tiny beaches and fields almost depressing :bisou:
