Dennis the Kiteboarder, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA


Today was one of those days when life brings an unexpected surprise. Walking the beach I met a friendly young man, Dennis, who was setting up and preparing his kiteboard for flying.  Having an affinity for anything that has flying involved I stopped to talk with him.  He was very wiling to share info about what he was doing and how he was doing it.  As a former hang glider pilot in my youth, I know what a pain tourists can be asking the same questions for the thousandth time - I appreciated his candor and willingness to talk about his sport.  Looks like quite a kick! There is a video link at the end of this post about the sport.
