Invasion of the "Butterfly" Kite Surfers?

Hi, everyone!
Come here and take a look at what we saw today.

I just had to stop, take a breather and soak up all this action.

 We ran into this kite surfer dude, a couple days ago.

 After showing us what he could do...

 He gave us his email and we sent him some pics.

He knows his stuff and thanked us for sending them.

For their information,
I have so much more to do on this beach
than to watch butterflies 
flying all over the ocean blue!


  1. I'm going to have to put that on my bucket list!

  2. I've never seen that sport before in my life. It looks like tons of fun, if a bit scary. It must be particularly tricky with so many of them on the same beach because their kites might get tangled!

    I can understand why you'd want to watch for a while. But, digging holes is tons of fun too!

  3. Hi Y'all!

    Wow! Sophie! You always, always put a smile on my face! You and your dads have great beach fun! and meet some really neat folks and pups along the way!

    Y'all come by now,

  4. Great day, watching and digging! Sophie, do you know if those surfers ever get their lines tangled?

  5. awesome photos...boy Sophie you hang out with cool people...

  6. That looks like a blast. I think they actually do that up here on the Turnagain Arm but because of the huge tides, cold water and deep mud it is very dangerous. Not you average sport for sure!

  7. Wow Sophie, that looks like a lot of fun--I don't know that I could ever do this, I'm not very brave--I'll bet your Dad's would!! :-)

  8. How totally freakin' cool! I bet that was so much fun to watch!


  9. Sophie, thanks to you I'm trying to convince my Mom and Dad to move back to the beach! Love the pics

  10. Wow! There sure are a lot of them. Do they ever get tangled up with each other?

  11. They look all pretty together like that.....and they really can get off the ground....that would scare me a bit. Digging in the sand is much more my style!

  12. Marvellous, soaring photos! Looks fun... well, from a photographer's point of view.

  13. Wow! Sophie, you see so many amazing things! Thanks for sharing them with us. I'm sure you can't imagine our oceanless mid-west experience!

  15. My peeps saw kite surfers in Oregon and they were spectacular. You were lucky too see them today too.

    Dad takes great shots....especially the ones where they are flying. Just outstanding.



  16. That is so cool! NEVER seen such a thing!

  17. wow, soph.... how much luckier can you be than to be here, on this beach... we would lerve to visit here. the sandbars are awesome, but not as awesome as our girl sophie is!!!

    smoochies, honey...

  18. Blimey, he is a dude and then some - how cool are those tricks?! The pictures are really vibrant and Sophie looks proper knackered in that one with her tongue out!
